    26er to 650B conversion. V-brake question

    Is it possible to convert a 26 HT frame without disc brake tabs to 650B?
    If so what is needed for the V-brakes to work?
    TIA.

    If the bike has canti studs, you can use Paul Moto BMX brakes, they allow for enough adjustment that you could run 700c on a 26" frame, if you have the clearance for the tires...

    Avid Single Digit 5 brakes work for me on velocity/weinmann rims. The slots don't allow for quite enough adjustment to get the brake pads right in the center of the sidewall, but it's close enough and I get plenty of braking power. I am thinking about trying these --

    Anyone else run these brakes ?

    The arms look to short to clear a usable MTB tire
