Right now I'm running a 650b 2.1 Schwalbe Rocket Ron in a 2011 Revelation XX with just barely enough room clearing the arch (about 3/8"). My Revelation was a transplant from a 150mm Ibis Mojo to a 100mm Turner Flux. I reduced it down to 110mm with a spacer kit. Not technically supported by Rockshox but can be done. Drawback is I can't get the last 20mm of travel due to internal space restrictions so I really only have 90 of usable travel and front is a bit high with the 650b in there.

Anyway. My frame has a 1-1/18 head tube and most all new forks are tapered. Found good deal on 2013 Sid's at Merlin and think this may be my last chance to get a decent new fork that actually fits this frame. Anyone tried a 650b in this fork and if so how does she fit?
