    Inbred/456 evo 650b compatible ?

    I'm definitely ordering one or the other soon, is either model, or possibly both able to be built up as a 650b ? I'd love to be able to have a bike that could use my 26" stuff, as well as allow me to try out a 650b wheel set,

    From what I've read here and other places, the word is that the 456 and slot dropout Inbred are 650b compatible. The vertical dropout Inbred is not. Search some of the older threads; I think there's a few pictures somewhere.

    Or, if you can hang on for a few months, On One has a "4560b" in the works.

    So did they change their mind? A year ago or so their opinion was "We have no intentions to support 650B as a standard wheel size going forward as I think it's a distraction, a red herring, a dead end"...

    I don't think that it's possible on 456evo. With ardents 26*2.25 gap is less than 10mm. Sorry for my English.

    LOL! Yeah, I remember that. Seems Brant pulled a Mitt Romney and flip-flopped. The new word is "We made one, we rode it, we like it."

    I think the entire rest of the MTB industry's sudden obsession with 650b may have forced a few hands.
