    New question here. potential cheap 150mm 650b bike?

    Just something I saw, not looking to purchase it but thought I'd share. Have no idea if this is fully 650b compatible (i checked the sticky thread above) but at least it comes with a fox fork so it would be at least 650b compatible in the front.

    Has relatively lower end components but considering its cost at $1100 shipped, I wouldn't imagine you could complain that much.

    Looks like it's listed the fork and rear shock incorrectly.

    Fork: Fox Float R Shock
    Rear Shock: Rockshox Sektor TR R Coil, 150mm Travel, Tapered Alloy Steerer, 15mm Drop-Outs

    ?

    Never heard of a rear shock needing a 15mm axle.


    Keep looking!

    Oh yah, they (the selling vendor) goofed on the listing of the specs but that's not hit on the bike and it's potential quality. But considering it has a rockshox fork instead of a fox, I have no idea if a Rockshox Sektor is 650b compatible or if the bike could clear a rear 650b wheel. And by the sound of the crickets, it looks as though no one else does either, lol.

    check the photo thread, there is a 2010 GT force with 650b rear, but it can only clear 2.1 neo-moto. not sure about 2011. Did they change the rear triangle???
