    29 inch up front?

    I have a Scott Genius with 27.5 inch wheels. I recently rode the Alchemy 975 and really liked it. It’s a “mullet” bike with 29er up front and 27.5 in the rear. Wondering if I can put a 29er on the front of my bike without changing the fork?

    Get a 29/27.5+ fork with ~20-30 mill less travel and do it!👍
