    Hans Dampf's on a superlight?

    Anyone know if they will fit without issues? I got them coming in the mail and didn't even think to check fit...

    By that do you mean you think it will fit up front but have issues in the back?

    Considering the 26" SL can be converted to 650B, I can't imagine that you'll have clearance issues in the front or back.

    Converts with the right size tire in back anyway i.e. 2.1's such as CrossMark,Nevegal, Quasi/NeoMoto's. The WTB 2.2 Wolverine are too tall/wide. I've seen someone running a 2.25 Racing Ralph at one point but they are considered an undersized 2.25 as I recall. Usually there is a shock mod to reduce travel, remove rr der cable guide on the back of seat tube and replace with a clamp on type if running 2/3x setups.

    I plan on running a 1x setup on mine so depending on clearance may remove der tab, I doubt I will have to do shock mod.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Whoops, sorry I got caught off guard by the 650 comment above my post(been jumping into both SC and 650B forums too much I guess....). I'm assuming 26" now and not sure what size you are getting but a 2.35 may be pushing it.
