It was really easy for them. no geometry changes, just new rear dropouts and 650b fork.

Same thing with Turner. If I'm able to source some reasonably priced 5 Spot chainstays I'll be converting my Sultan over to 650B.

As far as i know he was. In his interview on mountain bike action that was the bike he was going to use in the olympics. Watching the race his wheel size did look smaller than the other 2 he was battling with. As of yesterday Scott did not have anything on there website about it.

Not useful in WNY, in Eastern NY very useful! I also think it look spretty nice.

I would consider replacing my DH bike with one, it would be pretty fun to ride on the Eville trails.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
