    anyone have pics of an 08 Guap tire clearance w/ 650b wheels?

    Just wondering if anyone has had any luck putting 650b wheels on their 08 or 09 El Guapo. And if so, how about some pics!

    Thanks!

    That is good and news. I measured my clearance last night and it is nearly 14" on the nose from center of axle to the yolk.

    I dont have a picture but I did put a Stans Arch with a Nobby Nic on the rear of my V2 (2012) frame, it cleared and under full compression had a few mm before hitting the seatube. I would reduce the travel in the shock by at least 5mm before I rode it though.

    My 2.4" Trail King is big as I can go w/ clearance in the chainstay.. will have to measure it.. and find out diameter on that Nobby Nic.

    Funky thing w/ that TK, I have over an inch ST/tire clearance at bottom out w/ my 8.5x2.5 shocks.. clearance on shock/ST side too

    Probably best to measure tire clearance from the front of the axle for accuracy. Then add the 5mm for axle center to get the exact number (5mm is good # for tire clearance).
