    650B to Blizzard LT 2011

    Anyone tried to fit 650B wheelset/tyres to a 26-inch 2011 Blizzard LT (Long Travel) - or a 2010 standard Blizzard?
    Thanks in advance!

    I think you'd have to use some pretty skinny tires. My LT's rear chainstays won't clear 26x2.35 Magic Marys and even 26x2.35 Nobby Nics buzz when the frame flexes just right. I used to trim the outer-most knobs of 26x2.35 Kenda Excavators to avoid the buzz.

    Yeah, I think that will be the case regarding having to go skinny tyres if I swap them out.
    It was more around using it as a commuter but also a bikepacking rig when I do a few overnight/two-night trips in our autumn and winter (am in Australia). Funnily enough I have Magic Mary 26x2.35 on the front and Nobby Nics out back - and you're spot-on regarding the tyre rub! A few mates reckon I should sell the bike but I just love it.
