    2009 El Mariachi 27.5+

    Anybody try 27.5 on an El Mar of this vintage? I am planning to convert to tubeless wheels and figured if I could, maybe try 27.5+. Low PSI on a SS rigid might be nice.

    I have a later model, 2014 and as a rigid it fits a 29 x 3.0 just fine in front. The back is a 2.4 both running on 35mm i.d. rims. I like the bigger tire in front with the rigid as it add to the control without suspension.

    did you ever have a go at it? deets or pics? my el Mar is a couple of years older than yours, so very interested in your results.
    In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?
