I'd really like to know. I think I'm sold on the Lefty fork (never ridden one). I'd really like to know if 650B will fit either the Rise or the Scalpel...

I tried a Neo in both of mine. No go. There seems to be more room diameter-wise in the Scalpel than the Rize. I'll just have to stick with a 650 up front. Look for an older alloy Rush or a Prophet if you want to run 650's at both ends.

i checked out a rize 3 tonight, could barely get a finger between the chainstay arch and the stock tire ... that would be a hot set-up if the 650b fit.

i specifically went to check out an 09 stumpy fsr and rize for possible 650b compatibility.

Was the Stumpy also a no go?

i would seriously doubt it. they only had the carbon version in stock, didn't appear to be much clearance (like less than a half inch between the treads and the bridge of the rear swingarm, not talking about the chain stays) ... the epic beside it had much more.
