The Surly Troll must very likely be convertible, as it has the same geometry, and the same or larger clearances, as the 1X1.

Anonymous said...

SC Nomad accepts 650b although you have to limit the travel (only slightly), and the SC Blur TRc also accepts 650b and goes through all of it's travel with the rear tire rubbing the rear derailleur cable when travel is fully compressed

Anonymous said...

2010 Specialized Epic alloy frames fit 650b with room to spare.

Anonymous said...

Yeti Arc fits 650b with tons of room!

Giant said...

Simplon Racorblade is also comp. with 650b
greetz from Holland

Anonymous said...

SC Nomad Carbon (medium) will not accept a 2.3" Kenda Nevegal, the tire buzzes the swing arm stay.....so wouldn't call it 650B convertable, no point running anything narrower on a bike like this.

SC Blur TRc accepts the above wide tire with ample clearance, you will have to reduce the shock bottom out stroke by minimum if 3mm to stop the tire from damaging the front derailuer cable and hitting the rear of your seat tube.

Just fitted Stans 650b Crest wheels to my Scott Spark 10 2009, brilliant conversion and has breathed new life into this 26" which was just hanging in my garage. Not sure I want to ride my Tallboy anymore!

Anonymous said...

I have been running 650B with 2.3 neomotos on a 2011 Turner 5 spot. Fits with absolutely no issues.

aquaearl said...

I recently converted an Ellsworth Rogue to 650b. It has a talas 180 on the front. I had to put a slightly shorter travel shock on the back (a DT swiss ex200 8.75 x 2.5, from the stock DHX 8.75 x 2.75) so it still has 180 mm front and back. It is my all mountain bike and is now by far my favorite bike of all time (previously my Rip 9). The 650 makes this bike even more stable in DH/FR terrain. I would love a 2.5 650b tire option but the neo moto's have held up under most conditions.

bombing4x said...

I've got a 2007 Kona Coiler and was excited to see my frame on here. Found a good deal on a set of wheels on craigslist and pulled the trigger. Rear wheel didn't fit so had to do a little "customization."

bombing4x said...

Oh, but they fit my 09 SC Chameleon with no issues whatsoever..

Cracked Headtube said...

What was the problem? I fit a 2.3 NeoMoto in the shop, personally.

lI have an 02 Yeti A.R.C. Ti. Someone says with room to spare assuming it was for the alloy frames. Does this apply to Titanium? I look and it with my 26 rear and it's going to be close.

Anonymous said...

Tomac 'Carbide Sl' '10 also fits! With Kenda Nevegal 2,1, Racing Ralph 2,25 en Neomoto 2,1.

I have a 2009 Epic marathon carbon in M size; the frame is ok for the 650b wheels ??
Thanks in advance

Jez Andrews said...

On-One Whippet also compatible.

Got a Pinarello Pina FV5 and 650b's fit with no problems.

What about Santa Cruz blur xcc-2010? Is this the definitive list or just the bikes that have tested with 650 wheels?

Anonymous said...

Since there is no way to make a comprehensive list, it would be very helpful to include bikes that do not fit so people aren't wondering if it's already been tried.

Anonymous said...

Hi!
I'm looking into converting a 26" Stumpjumper FSR Expert EVO 2011.
Anyone tried/got some input?

Cheers.

Tara said...

Can I convert the epic elite 2011 26" to 650b, front fork is no issue but concerned about rear wheel.

Any one know if it will work.

Cheers

2002 Yeti A.R.C Ti . using Stan's Flow with Pacenti Quasi Moto 2.0 Fits with room for bigger tire knobs. A 2.1 should work but not sure after that.

has anyone tried the 2011 kona abra cadebra conversion?

Has anyone tried/knows if an ASR-5 Alloy could be converted to 650b?

TheSlades said...

Converted a 2005 Cannondale Prophet, and built a very inexpensive 650 from a Sette Reken for my wife. Both running Nevegal 2.1...I live in the desert and rarely need wider tires.

Anonymous said...

Have a 2010 Giant XTC Carbon SL Frameset. Can anyone tell me if 650b will work. Or can someone give me a measurement on their wheel from the axle out to the tire edge so I can measur it up?
Thanks

Kenneth Lopez said...

Anyone know if I can fit 650b combo on a 2006 Specialized Enduro Pro??? Thanks!!!

TheSlades said...

If you live in Arizona I'm more than willing to let you try my wheel/tire set on your bike to see if they fit before you spend money on a conversion.

WaCycles said...

Convert my Giant XTC composite 2011 xs size with fox terralogic 100mm.Fit nicely with Kenda Nevegal 27.5 x 2.1 tyres.

Has anyone tried a 2009 Specialized Safire FSR and what was clearance like. Was told no wider than a 1.95.

Has anyone tried a 2007 Specialized S-Works Stumpjmper FSR? Looking at buying one used. Thanks.

jakulio said...

Jakulio, The 2010 Stumpy Expert FSR will accept at least a Pacenti Quasi Moto! Have fun with your upcoming conversion!! have more questions? Feel free to email: jeremy (at) 650bpalace.com and find us on FACEBOOK! www.facebook.com/650bpalace

I'd really love to get the definitive word on whether a trek fuel ex from 2011 will take 650b in the rear. I've read elsewhere that they won't but my meausurements say they will. Can anyone help?

Anonymous said...

I see that on one scandal 26-er frame is in the list with convertiable to 650B frames. But it is not specified which on one scandal frame - with the vertical or the sliding dropout ?
I have one with vertical dropout and I am wondering if it will be ok with 650B tyre. If anyone has the answer it will be great :)
Thanks in advance.

Isaac Brown said...

Anyone know what year and model Jamis Dakars work for 650b other than the newer ones?

I want to convert my Soul Cycle Hooligan 1st Gen frame to 650B, will this gonna work?

Anonymous said...

Chunba HX1 fits 2.35 Nevegal with room to spare. Initially had some front derailleur clearance issues but was able to make it work.

Paulo Duarte said...

2011 Merida Matts TFS 900 fits a 2.25" at the back but currently running a Kenda Nevegal 2.1" for a while without problems. Just changed the derailleur to a direct mount type with a problem solver adaptor to get a better mud clearance.

TheDrunkCuzin said...

I have a 06 Marin Wolf Ridge frame, my hubs are 142mm.. I've tried to put the rear wheel on but it's not fitting.. does anyone know if the make a dropout that accepts 142mm? or am i just screwed?

Cracked Headtube said...

The 06 Wolf Ridge uses standard 135mm vertical dropouts. Depending on what hub you are using, you may be able to get a conversion kit to allow you to use you currents wheels with the frame. As of right now your frame and rear hub are bot compatible with one another.

Anonymous said...

I think I just submitted that a 97 GT Avalanche can convert, wasn't supposed to do that. Apologies....

But this guy has done... so could be valid

Anonymous said...

I don't think the 1998 Stumpjumper HT works. The ones I have seen don't have disc brakes and don't appear to have enough clearance.

Anonymous said...

2005 Dakar Sport definitely does not fit. It barely fits a 26x2.2 tire.

Anonymous said...

Just wondering, but will an 07 SC Chameleon (with horizontal droupouts) work?

Does anyone know if a 2008 Stumpjumper FSR frame will work, it looks tight, bummer as a 2009-11 FSR is apparently a good fit. I have ~2/3" between the seat stay brace and the current 26 x 2.1 Fire XC Pro.

Anonymous said...

Anyone know if 27.5" fit on a Santa Cruz Chameleon 4 and a 1995 Bontrager Race Lite?

Help is appreciated

My old Bridgestone MB3 with SS dropouts that I brazed on works well with a Bomber fork as a 650b conversion. The only thing I don't like is the BB height is a little too tall.
