What forks do you use for a 650b bike? Do you run a 26″ fork with the 650b tyre almost touching the arch (see pic above) or do you run a 29er with a massive gap? Will 650b herald the comeback of the archless fork, Maverick SC32, etc? Is there a new 650b fork size?Posted 5 years ago
some forks fit 650b, fox i think? but obviously clearance is limited
rockshox have a 650b revelation, white bros have the loop fork, magura have a few 650 forks in their new line up and fox have some of their 34mm forks for 2013

totally agree with TJ – more stuff to try and sell you – wonder when people will realise this?
You do understand that the reason that bike companies exist is to sell bicycles, right?
And that selling different sized wheels isn’t some sinister plan, it’s them responding to demand?
And that having a choice is a good thing?
And that there’s zero chance that anyone is going to come to your house and force you to buy a new bike, or change your wheel size?Posted 5 years agocodger23Subscriber
rode a 27.5 (Jamis) and a 29″ the other day alongside a 26″ – the 27.5″ was the more natural ride coping with terrain more easily, with the benefits of better rolling but quicker to haul up slopes than a 29″ – definitely converted as felt less beat up and fresher on the 27.5 – will wait until there is a better selection of tires and forks but definitely preferred the 27.5 – never saw a sinister plan just enjoy riding any bike off road – cannot afford all the bikes I would like but this is definitely a step in the right direction- now if only I could get a test bike!Posted 5 years ago
