    26" Covert CF with 650B front?

    Any experience with a 26"/650b mix on a 26" covert (CF)?
    I'm looking for a new enduro/tour bike in the future and fell in love with the covert CF. No idea if transition will ever bake a 650b version of the covert CF so I'm thinking about a combination between 26 and 650b on the actual version.
    should be possible?

    Im am sure that transition will be out with a 650b version maybe for next year. but to answer your question there have been many forums and threads about running this MX type setup and all have gave positive feedback. I also know with converstaions with transition that they do not encourage to run different size wheels on frames that were not meant for that specific type. It would have to be an experiment on your part. there is a team issued green carbon covert for sale slated as one of Lars bikes running a 650b fork on the front giving it a bit more slack HA. But thats 650b fork with 26 inch wheel.
