Hi everyone,
I'm new here so not sure if there is another thread already discussing this but i have a sync'r carbon 27.5+ and have been wanting to try it out with 29. So of course i got ahead of myself and bought new 29" wheels and tires and now my front tire does not clear the arch on my forks. Everywhere I've read it says 27.5+ should clear 29" tires. Am i doing something wrong, is my setup of wheels and tires just wrong or does it simply not work with the Fox 34 27.5+ forks that come on the sync'r carbon?? The 29" wheel and tire setup i have is raceface wheels 25mm inside width 28mm outside and ethirteen trail 29x2.4 tires.

Sadly, you will need a new fork to fit the 29 wheel. As you may have found out it fits a 29 on the rear no problem. I run a 29 x 2.6 easily. It rides well in 29er also.
