    Specialized upgrade

    hello everyone! I'm pretty new at this site so bare with me.
    I recently bought a used 04 specialized FSR XC and I was wondering if I can upgrade the wheels to 27.5/29 and front shocks? Thanks

    Well you might be able to squeeze a thin 650B tire in the back, as for the fork, you're out of luck, unless someone made a straight 1,1/8th steerer 650B or 29er fork I don't know about.
    Seriously, just put new tires on, a wider handlebar and ride it. And maybe have the suspension serviced.

    MRP actually still produce a short travel fork with a straight steerer for 26/650b and 29 but like you said, better to just run what you brung.
