    nice fall ride(trying 650b on a hardtail)

    I've done a full 650b Rush and a front only 650b Prophet & I thought I would try out my xc hardtail in a front only set-up. I had a blast and it worked really well.

    I am guessing Ultegra 9sp (6500?).

    Anyway, the one thing I do notice this time of year w/ a 650b front in a Fox fork is the number of leaves getting stuck under the brace.

    This time of year ANY wheel/fork you get leaves stuck under the brace. Only forks immune are inverted ones without braces. I've got loads of clearance on my psylo/neo-moto and i get them stuck. My reba29/RR...leaves stuck. My Noleen MegaAirs and 26" wheels, stuck leaves.

    Whoa there big guy...I think you've had enough coffee this morning.

    It was just an observation. Of course leaves get caught in almost any and all wheel/fork combinations. I'm just saying it seems that the reduced space catches more and holds them longer...that's all.

    You can argue that, figure out an experiment to refute it...whatever.

    I have no plans to switch back to a 26" wheel.

    BUT they get stuck closer to the crown, I find them easier to clear on the bike
    ...strictly downhill...

    Thread derailed!

    Nice looking bike. I think this forum could use more photos about rides. After you get a few more miles you should update with critiques.

    Thanks, the crank is just a 105. I notice the bigger wheel more on this hardtail than either of the fully conversions.
