    So did you just use 650b wheels and fork, and everything fit? Rides ok?

    I'm using 27.5 wheels on a 26er frame and 26er fork. The front tire (Maxxiss Ardent 2.2) did not have enough clearance in the frame or fork. I'm currently using Racing Ralphs 2.2 on the front and rear. I personally don't like the tire for the front. I'm going to see what my other options are.

    The bike rides perfect. I'm still trying to get the suspension setup correctly. I had to lower the stem a bit to lower the front end. The front end broke loose on steep climbs. I'm going to try it with 26" wheels and see what wheel size I like best on this frame.

    Cool, I wonder how the ride would be if you put on a 650b fork, instead of using the 26.

    Remember Joe, you don't always have to run the same wheel size. I have been running 650b up front on both of my bikes with a 26" in the rear and love it. My YBB loves it too ;).
