Hello WWs,

I am looking at slowly changing over from the smaller wheels to the slightly bigger wheels.
I have tested a 650b rear wheel in my frame and it should clear just fine. I know for a fact that my SID fork won't clear a 650b wheel and tyre so i am looking at 26" fork options which would clear such a wheel/tyre.

I know leftys work. And i have also read that Fox' offerings will work. Any recommendations or tips?

The wheels will be bought with the intention of getting a proper 650b frame later on. But before i do that i would love to test them out on my current rig. Does anyone have any tips or recommendations for forks that will work with a 650b wheel?

Formula 33 has massive tyre clearance and works much better than the SID. Also much stiffer.

Here is a picture of the 33 with Continental MountainKing 2.4 Racesport mounted tubeless on DT Swiss 4.2d:

X-Fusion non-DLA models are 26'/650b cross compatible. The new magura's with the 15mm axles are also dual 650/26".

I will measure it tonight, but I am pretty sure it was very close to my SID.

The Formula 33 axel to crown is 475mm give or take a few mm as measurement error.
