    650B wheels on a 2015 Specialized Enduro Com 26

    Looking at a used 2015 Specialized enduro 26. Can I install 650B wheels on this 26 bike?

    Pretty sure 2014 was the last year they ran 26's. You might be able to fit 650B wheels and lower volume tires but it's not something I'd really recommend doing.

    Yeah, I think 2015 was when they made the transition to 650B, this must be a 2014 bike. Thanks.

    Reading the specs on the 2015, it was the same frame with a slightly longer chain stay, so I would say the 27.5 probably would not fit if it is a 2014 26in.

    If you want 27" wheels don't half ass it, buy a 27" frame. They've been around long enough now where you can find them cheap. 27" wheels on 26" frame will jack up your BB, and reduce mud clearance to nothing. Because 650b is technically only 25mm taller you can run 650b in pretty much any 26" frame, but the negatives of doing so outweigh the .5" increased attack angle.
