The Haro SonixVL120, complete B'r

I swapped out my swing arm on the Sonix to the LT version to allow a Neo-Moto to fit nicely. So, I'm now riding 2, full-fledged 650B bikes. No, not purpose built, but modified well enough to do the trick. I'm really enjoying the Sonix in this formatt. I can tell a significant difference while battling the roots and sand of central Florida trails.
Heres a look.

Correct, the standard Sonix VL120 cannot did not fit the Pacenti Neo-Moto. The Long Travel (LT) has a bit longer wheelbase, thus allowing the 650B wheel to fit.
