    Will a 09 blur xc carbon fit 650b wheels?? can't find an answer..

    I have looked and can't find an answer to this. I know the newer frames fit the 650b wheels, but can an 09 carbon xc carbon frame?

    As far as I know the new frame has a tapered head tube and that is the only difference.

    also the 142x12 rear but yeah, i believe the frame is basically the same for all carbon blur xc models so should work 650b with just the same caveats around tyre size and possible shimming of the shock as with the newer frames.

    though i do note that sc used to call it 105mm travel but changed to 100mm a couple of years ago. my impression is that this is just a rounding/accuracy thing, not any actual change...

    Thanks, hmm i think i would like the 142x12 rear. I already have a 08 fox talas 100-120-140 getting rebuild right now. From looking i believe this front fork will work. And it isn't tapered so no issues there.
