    Will the latest RS Revelation Boost 650b/27.5" accomodate a 29" wheel?

    I am building a 650b Nukeproof Scout. See work in progress below. The fork in the picture has been sold.



    I would very much like to have it run both 650b and 29" boost wheel standards (I own both). There is ample space in the rear triangle to accomodate the 29er.

    I have spotted a Rockshox Revelation Charger RC 27.5 150mm with boost on sale where I live.

    I know that RS claims it is not possible to run 29" in their latest model year 650b/27.5" Revelation RC, but has anyone actually tried to fit one in there?

    You would certainly know, better than I would, what will fit in your frame, but it sure doesn't look like a 29" wheel/tire will fit in there from the picture - or is there one in there now? Have you actually put one in there to check? I think you'd have to get a 27.5+/29 wheel specific fork to fit a big wheel in there.

    But, if you can, you sure will solve the pedal strike problem! Let us know on the rear at least.

    Hi There is ample space in the rear triangle when I use my 2.35" 29" wheel.

    And yes, getting rid of the pedal strike problem is one of the reasons I would like to find another fork (i.e. preferably a taller one).
