    Anyone have 27.5+ wheel/tire set they would let me test fit in my 29er?

    I would like to try converting my Airborne Goblin 29er to a 27.5+ bike. Since moving to Snowflake AZ I have found the ground is a lot more sandy up here, it would be fun to have more flotation but I don't have the budget for a full blown fat bike right now. I have measured and think that a 27.5+ tire on the smaller side (specifically the WTB Trailblazer 2.8) would fit in my frame, but I was wondering if anyone in the East Valley has a set of similar sized 27.5+ wheels/tires they would let me test fit before I spent cold hard cash on the experiment. I will be in town next weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday. I am willing to come to you and won't be taking you wheels/tires, just testing them in my frame to see how much clearance there would be. My frame is a regular old quick release so that type of hub would be best, but any type should give me an idea at least. Thanks in advance.

    I would think there would be plenty of shops in town that would be able to help you with a test fit. Give a couple a call near where you will be staying.

    Thanks for the idea Phillbo, however I am an internet shopper and would hate to waste a shop's time if I don't intend to purchase from them.
