Just bought a new scale 700 frame and don't have any 27.5 " wheels yet , so I was thinking about using my 29 " wheels and front fork until I got some. I have put them on the bike and it seems like they fit ok, but it did raise the BB height a full inch. Maybe less with smaller volume tire. I know this sort of defeats the purpose of the frame, but for time being working with what I have. Has anybody done anything like this and what was the results? Haven't got drive train and brakes on the bike yet.

Before all these 650B bikes came out people were putting 27.5 wheels on 26" frames. If it means the difference between riding or not riding and everything fits I say go for it. It may not be ideal but at least you're riding.
