    Bandit 29er with 27.5+ setup???

    I love my Bandit 29er, but am really tempted to sell her off for a 27.5+ full squish setup. Has anyone tried throwing some 27.5+ wheels/tires on a the Bandit 29er?

    Yes, I've got some WTB Scraper i45 rims/Nobby Nic 2.8's and they fit with room to spare. However, I'm running a 2x10 setup, and the chain rubs the tire in the the lowest 3 gears when in the small chainring. I don't think it would be a problem if running a 1X setup. Also, the bottom bracket is ultra low at ~321mm, so pedal strikes are an issue.

    My bike is a '12 B29 FWIW.
