Weird question, huh? Well, I'm working on an idea for a 650b wheel fitment for my 04 Spot. The Spot HL stays don't work, but TNT rears fit, but you end up with a 14.25 BB height. Not ideal, but ok. I don't see a 7.0 X 2.0 shock as being available...... Even better fit from what I understand is the RFX TNT bikes. But since I have a spot, maybe if I can put on the RFX TNT rear.......... would it fit?.......what would it do to the 13.50 ish BB height of the Spot? If that were to work, then I'd have to remove the der stop at the back of the seat tube and relocate it off to the side. And then have it repainted by Turner
If this wouldn't work, I'll just have to stay with the RFX used frame concept. Or buy a new 650b frame from Ventana or Jamis.
DT, how about a 'conversion kit' for Turner frame owners........slightly longer stays or modified yokes with more clearance with a shock rocker sized correctly for a great BB height. Little investment, keep your owners in your brand, and increase the selling price of your used frames.........
Thanks for your input.........
