    KM Ops rear wheel clearance

    Trying to determine if I can mount a 27.5 + rear wheel on a KM ops frame. Can anyone send me a width measurement. The WTB Trailblazer's measure 2.8 inches (72mm) wide when mounted on 50mm rims. I'm basically trying to make a 27.5 Krampus.

    Any thoughts if this will fit with the standard QR dropouts?

    Thanks

    There is some pictures of a KM ops with B+ wheels floating around here, though I don't know if it ever made it to the Surly forum. I think it was posted in the 29er or 650 forum. I tried to find it and came up empty handed.

    If you click the little blue arrows next to the posters name in the post I quoted it will take you to the original post and thus the thread it's in.

    Or, because I'm a nice guy, 650b/27.5 and Rigid - who's riding em? .
