    Good job! 2012 Remedy 650B conversion (x-post)

    so after just a few rides (AZ, UT, CO) i'm impressed.

    granted, these stan's arch ex hoops are lighter than the stock 26'er XT/dusters, but there's no denying the bike has a livelier feel now.

    WTB wolverines (tubeless)

    What's your clearance like at the rear arc on the seat stays? What size rear tire? That's the area I hear gets tight. Can you feel the difference in height at the BB?

    Stock 2012 Remedy 9.8 with charger pros & Schwable Hans Damf 2.35 tubeless!

    Rides great, typical tight clearances in all the usual spots - no rubbing though.
    I didnt notice a change in BB height, BUT i did notice slightly heaver steering. I really like it. Good investment.
