    Titus Switchblade 650b Conversion

    If you want to truly want to assess benefits of going from 26 to 27.5, try a 650b conversion....if your frame/forks will allow. The transformation may surprise you. My Titus Switchblade was sweet as a 26er but it's even better as 27.5er. I was able to do the change without a weight increase due to extremely light 30mm wide Velocity Blunt SS rims....highly recommended BTW. My SB is now better in every category, handling has mellowed in a good way, less twitchy yet still responsive. The 26 "harshness" is gone! I've got a nice ride for a few more years....650b conversion is highly recommended for a Switchblade. Oh, took the opportunity to change gearing which also made a big difference. Went with 24,32,42 up front and 11 - 36 in back. BTW, Shimano's Shadow Plus technology is awesome, eliminated chain slap completely, the bike is silent, just a whisper from the jockey pulleys....way cool.

    Nice but I think you're in the wrong place. But still a nice bike.
    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.
