    pics of 650B Sparks

    I know they are compatable, but i was wondering if anyone knew where i could find some pics of a spark that has been made 650B.

    Specifically for rear wheel clearance. I just want to see how good it has for RWheel clearance.

    Thanks

    I just bought a Spark30 frame. Unfortunately the price was so hard on my wallet that I can't build a set of 650b wheels for it yet. However, my Scalpel has a lefty 650b front wheel with the Quasi-moto tire. So to confirm that a 650b wheel will fit the rear of the Spark I held it in the triangle and I got a big smile on my face. Lots of room for sure. I don't know how things will work once the shok is fully compressed but that's looking good too. Good bit of distance between the tire and seatpost. If you want to make the leap I'd say go for it. I'm going to but it won't be until Sept. I'll be sure to post pics once I've done it.

    Thank you RockStar. I plan on starting my this next week. Gonna do it piece by piece. What wheels are you running?

    I saw AC hubs, but could not discern the rims..

    I did, check my archives back in 2007. I removed the air from the shock and there was no rubbing problems. Enjoy the bike!
