    27.5+ on SB95?

    Anyone running 27.5+ on their SB95? I have an alloy version and would like to give it a try but chainstay clearance looks like it might not allow it...

    I have a feeling Yeti are coming out with a new version of the current range, possibly a 27.5+ SB5c

    I have not, but I'm running a 2.35 Ikon in back right now and there isn't much more room. I would guess there is no way to make it happen. The new Pivot 429 Trail is setup for both 29 and 27+; I would have to assume it would require a lot of fore-thought in production to make it work.

    Not gonna work. You need boost spacing on 29er bikes typically to fit 27.5+, and even the 4.5C, which has boost spacing, is still too narrow for 27.5+. My 30 ID wheels with 2.35 Ikons have very little room to spare in the back of my SB95, no way a wider tire would fit

    Yep, I have 2.35 Hans Dampf on Enve AM hoops and under heavy load it will rub the inside of the swing arm,....also limits the travel of the front derailleur too before it's hitting tread in the climbing gear.
