    Intense Tracer 2 conversion vs Tracer 275: how different?

    I've done some searching (at least I've tried) on this issue. I was basically wondering how different a new Intense Tracer 275 is to a Tracer 2 that's been converted to 650b with the kit available from Intense.

    I've not been able to come up with any solid information on how different the two frames are. Obviously, the 275 was made as a 650b bike and the Tracer 2 is converted, but do they perform significantly different? Is the older Tracer 2 frame inferior in any respects? I ask because my LBS has both available and the Tracer 2 is quite a bit less money wise.

    Any and all input is, as always, greatly appreciated!

    I would suspect 275 frame has lower BB.

    there is not any significant changes in geometry between the two, only different is 650 fork, wheels and the adapter for the back. I had the same dilema few months ago with my carbine 26er. Finally I decided to keep as it is but upgrade the fork and rear shock. If you can demo both bikes and see if even you like the 27.5. The only bike from intense that I know is specific design on 27.5 wheels is the T275 bike the others are just conversion.
