    You looking to make a Mullet bike? Pinkbike has a good video on this topic, so does GMBN. If you have a 29er capable fork it should be an easy thing to try out

    Its BB is low enough that the geo might be alright. If you have a 120/130 mm fork and wheel laying around, you'd be crazy not to try it.

    I had a 2014 Trance 29er that I stuck 27.5" wheels on - (ARC 30 rims on DT240S hubs) it didn't agree with me, but the mullet version worked pretty well downhill. Uphill the seatpost became stupid slack...
