    Pic of 650b yeti arc at break epic race

    Have been trying to find a 650b equipped arc. Found this pic of nick truitt at this years break epic stage race

    Breck Epic 2012: Nick Truitt (Yeti Pactimo Pro XC) Climbs B & B Trail Near..., Photos | Cyclingnews.com

    He referred to it a his secret weapon in a cycling dirt interview. Why is it hard finding info on arc with 650b wheels? Anybody have any good pics?

    I've posted on this a few times, I also race on Nick's team. We have a number of guys who have done this, and yes, it does work just fine. We used Stan's 650b wheels. It works well because the geometry on the ARC is already great, and the wheels fit, no problem.

    That's good to hear. What size tire will work in the rear?

    I still run 26" wheels, but just touched base with another guy on our team and he said 2.2 or 2.1...

    I'd be interested to know what forks he is running. They look like Fox, are they a 26" fork?
    Might be an interesting experiment for some XC 100km races.
