    Bonking ... not feelin' well I did it...

    BB a tad low
    Still had a Long wheelbase ( Long stays)
    Still felt like a 29r
    Better Mud clearance
    Steering gets wacky...

    I'd recommend a 26 --> 650B Conversion

    Agreed what they said. I'm most likely going to test out putting a 650b rear wheel on a fully rigid 29er. It will be one with short stays to get less see/saw effect.
