    El Salt as a 69er?

    I'm thinking about running my Salt as a 69er... is that possible without messing up the bike's geometry?

    I ran a 2007 Salty with a 120mm fork and it didn't handle that great...was very light on the front wheel. So I don't think you could go beyond 495mm A2C. I think you could get away with running a 650B front wheel but a 29er might be a little much. My only bike is a Ventana 650B HT and I really dig the 650B wheel format.
