    If I put a Turner decal over my Pivot decal, does that count?

    They don't, 650b specific forks are 34s.

    Not approved, but I thought the 26" specific 36 Fox Float will work with a 650b wheel.

    Maybe the newest version allows more space? My 2011 Fox 36 has no more than .75" between the tire and arch with a 2.3 Butcher. If this is in fact the route you're going you might want to also make sure that at full travel the tire won't hit the crown.

    How about the 180 Foxes? Do they have clearance like the latest 40 (still proto?) legs?

    I don't know if this is a 26 or 27.5 thread when KRob replied to Jaybo's fork question.

    I think you're right in saying it could fit, however you could also be limiting yourself to smaller tire profiles just because of the fork.

    Good double entendre there... Not the one with the 7 yellow jerseys.

    Dave might take that... I imagine you will have little trouble finding a buyer for the 429 if you go that way. Ride it with a for sale sign on it at SOMO or trail 100. I bet you would get offers. Let me now you do that, I want to see if it works. I might try it this weekend just for fun.

    I don't think you could find enough Turner decals to cover those Pivot decals

    Oh, did you mean this Lance?

    See, the secret is you do have to give them away. I've got an offer on the table for the Knolly I'm considering..... but it's quite a bit lower than I thought I'd take for it. But it's probably fair given the current used bike market.

    I bet for the "right" price that Endorphin would sell fast.

    I thought that's what this thread was all about. Am I going with a 26er or a 27.5er on this new build?

    Knolly or Turner? Tomayto? Tomahto?

    Split loyalties and all that.

    Only if you had a FB. I'm pretty sure Dave would approve. Afterall, I think he's the one that said "If you want an RFX just go buy a Firebird".

    Not sure where the Burner talk came from. Your direction was very obvious. May your chili always be hot

    KRob- Did you get a chance to ride a Chili during the Knollfest? If so how did it compare to your 5 Spot? I love my 11 Spot, but like so many, i've got the new bike itch. If I'm derailing the derailed thread, pm me or I'll post op on the "other" board.

    I recently had the new bike itch too. Didn't work out so well. The Spot is tough to beat for all-around riding.

    I'll be on a new Endo if I can sell the Pivot. Built nice and light, and a great compliment to the Chili.

    Oh man, thought you could get back on a Turner, mate! You would likely really enjoy a Sultan or Burner.

    Hmmm. After the last time you had an Endo(s)? Really? Just buy Lance's since you know Dusty will take care of you. Or treat yourself to an on sale now Sultan which is the DW 9er you should have purchased in the first place.

    And not cracked.

    KRob seems to have lusted after the Burner. The selling of BOTH 26ers at the same time seems to lean in the direction of 27.5. If he was going Chili there are plenty of parts there to keep for the build.

    It's fun (for me) to comment on others alleged builds. 5 spot for me baby! I'm with Lance! Or he is with me or something...

    Shoulda rode tonite instead of posting...

    Thanks. I'm back and forth about the whole thing.
