    rune 27.5 wheels on 26 dropouts

    Hello.
    Can you run 27.5 wheels on 26 dropouts on the new Rune, I want to keep my CS as short as posible.
    Thanks

    I tried using maxis high roller 2.35 and it didn't work. ......rear tire hit bottom bracket. The 26 drop outs did fit on my spitfire.tight but nice!

    They might work on the rune with a smaller tire.

    Hi Bernado,

    please check out here and there, as this topic has been discussed very often during the last years.

    Generally yes, 650B wheels do fit in the 26 dropouts, but with a compromise in max. tire volume and therefor clearance, which also differs between the flipchip-settings and between the Rune and Spitfire because of their slightly different rear-triangle and links.
