    Dumb idea or Not?

    Can I stuff 650b wheels in my 08 Flux? Putting a X Fusion velvet 100/110 on it soon and its my understanding that fork can can convert to 650b. Will this mess with the geo and or screw up the frame?

    I know someone who has run 650b on an old flux, not sure if it was front and back wheels though.

    I have an 07 Flux that I've run 650b. I believe my swingarm was from a 5spot, though. It was a warranty item after DW frames took over. They were out of Flux spares. A 650b Ralph barely clears the seatstay arch.
    The fork may be a bit much at 120mm with 650b. It's worth a try, though.

    I tried a HL 5Spot and DW Flux, no luck with stans rim and pacenti tires, just not enough chainstay clearance. Too bad - the dw flux would make a great 650.
