Ok, so I get that Ibis has lowered the rear travel to get the BB down.

but if the 140 HD converts so well....

why cant i run a HDR in 140 mode with 650b?

Will the 140 Limbo chips work on the HDR?

Can anyone think of the negatives of this?

Supposedly the HDR chips aren't compatible with the HD and vice versa. How true that is I dont know but even in the Ibis store the 160 chips are listed separately for the HD and HDR (could be a clever hoax to keep tinker types from slamming rear tires into seat tubes :)
