    650B fork for a Scott Spark 30

    looking at going 650B on my spark. Now the fork I run is a RS REBA SL. The arch is too low, so that means new fork! Now I have been reading around that there are some 26" forks that will accommodate the 650B wheel size. Such as the XFusion Velvet. I have also read that the Fox F32 will accommodate it, and from looking at the clearance on bikes it looks like it will do that just nicely.

    Now I know that Fox did release a letter stating that the 32's are meant for 26" only.

    I am looking to see if anybody out there has had experience running a Fox as a 650B fork or has used the Velvet?

    Also, If that is a yes. Do you think that the stresses with the bigger wheel would be too great for the fork legs?

    Also would using a 650B fork affect the geometry greatly or would it just make it more up right like I am thinking it would?
