    offset bushings on a 650b Nickel?

    Can anyone confirm if you can use offset bushings on a Nickel and still have enough clearance?

    There's not a ton of room in the rear as it is. Will the offset cause the tire to rub the seat post? Will I be limited by tire choices?

    I guess it depends on the tire you are using. I have an 27.5x2.25 Ardent on the back and I have about 1mm of clearance at full bottom out. I assume you could do this with a travel limiter in your shock.

    Hoping not to reduce the travel. 125mm is where I would like to keep it. I guess this probably is not feasible.
