    KOna Stinky D with big wheels, mon

    six fifty. If if fits, stick them on. Don't be tinkin' bout two-niner, mon.
    use your existing frame and experiment.

    For me it goes faster and climbs better. Currently the selection of tires suck. Maxxis
    doesn't make any 650b. They are backward. I feel sorry for Maxxis.

    eventually you will suffer massive amounts of tire rub on that yoke while you're riding. the tire will naturally become less resilient and balloon in the upper section when the bottom is compressed under your weight during any type hit that creates more force than JRA. super common problem with sticking larger tires in a smaller space...

    Yes you're right.... after a couple rides, I unfortunately have a feeling thats going to happen
    so I just ordered a couple of 2.1's for the rear. There's more clearance (I tested one from another 650b bike I converted). A rear 2.1 on this bike is kind of freaky but I used them 10 years ago on my first Stinky so I'm used to it. Regardless, the 650b is the best upgrade
    since the invention of hydraulic brakes. My LBS is currently lacing another pair of P35's for my blue Stinky.

    so cal trails, dusty, rocky and some with a lot of exposure. Not a big clipless fan.
    They are Animal plastic flats available at your LBS for about $25

    The flames are covering up last year's scratches and its a great thing that separates
    one from another if it gets stolen. They're only 9.99 at O Reillys

    I noticed since I have the same pedals on my bmx bike and even my XC bike... I would never consider putting plastic pedals on a downhill bike though.
