    If 650b starts selling I'd like to see you stick to that. You all will follow the money just like everyone else.

    scandal 26 er with 650B tyres

    Hello, I have 26-er on one scandal frame 20". I am wondering will there be enough clearance to fit 650B 2.25 tyre ?
    Thanks.

    I saw in an older thread that the 26" Inbred will fit a 650b wheel/tire, as long as it has the slot dropout. Anybody know how running the larger wheels affects the handling? Seems to me that just because 650b wheels fit, doesn't necessarily means its a good idea. Interesting option, nonetheless.

    Maybe they changed their minds (assuming 45650b was meant to read 650b)?

    Very interesting indeed...

    I'd be all over a 456 that could fit 650b as long as the frame could also fit a tapered fork. A decent 1 1/8" fork is getting hard to find.

    I've got two Inbred 26er frames (one slot and one vertical). Technically, both will fit a 650b wheel/tire in the rear just fine but I don't know that I'd consider either frame "rideable" in the 650b configuration. Not enough tire clearance IMHO so I ended up going with a Voodoo Bokor when I decided to build up a 650b bike.
