    2014 Sultan convert into a 27.5+????

    Been trying to sell my Sultan frame to no avail!!! A shame, yes....but a possible opportunity arose from the despair with one silly thought; could this frame convert to a 27.5+ bike. I read about the new Salsa Pony whatever it is and it sounded like the 3.0 tires on 27.5 rims match a 2.2-2.4 29" wheel. I'm far from a technical #'s guy so throwing it out there for thoughts before I basically give this frame away. Sounds interesting.........

    Awesome! I wasn't sure there'd be enough clearance in the rear end I ran 2.4's and they were super tight. So the next ? is....is it worth it?

    is it worth it.....was going to sell it this year, but now no chance. i have a new 142 swing arm on the way, hoping to put the maxxis back on, stiffer and looks like a bit more clearance.

    yes it is worth it
