- Conversion – 650b as rear – what frame?
As Brant mentioned in the other thread it can make the handling a bit off due to the increase in height of the bb, the C456 it’s that low to start with either I think.Posted 4 years ago
My 26/650/29 conversion has a custom length shock and fork to cater for the extra height and get the bb down to a reasonable height.
May not be an issue given it’s intended use and options with fork but worth bearing in mind all the same.
Yep LoCo has guessed correctly – I’ve got a 650b crossmark 2.1 for the rear – 29er up front with a 445 rigid fork. 90% commuting unless I get distracted by the local trails on the way…
2.1 crossmark was the smallest I could find but it still fouls all the 26ers I’ve got at home – some by just a smudge.
Just read the 4560b thread and on one link. Thanks – not up for a new frame but will keep eyes pealed for a used one.Posted 4 years ago
