Are the dropouts the same for the 650b bikes as the earlier models? Could you pop on 650b dropouts and add hype to the Distortion?

As you all know, a bike is completely unridable unless its 650b (according to MTB media) so this is pretty important.

Hmm. I wonder too. I have a Ruckus DJ that Im thinking of going 650B on. Only difference is mine has the horizontal dropouts with the multispeed option you can add to it. The horizontal dropout may allow me to move the wheel back and make it fit. I haven't seen any 650 dropouts up for sale anywhere either. I wouldn't mind doing that to my 2009 Force. I think the Distortion and Force have the same type of replaceable dropouts. Let us know if you come up with anything.
