Buildin up C-Dale Taurine with 650Bs. They Fit! Kinda close at Neo's tread width so hopefully my stiff wheels will help prevent much rub. Plenty of clearance for the OD. figure by spring the assortment of tires will offer some good race tires and there will be no issue at all.

I have a Turine and would like to convert to 650 - appears you have clearance - though I dont know how big your tires are. Im looking for a fast XC race set-up - I run Conti Race King 2.2's (26) now - and dont want to go down in size too much.
VERY curious to hear how the conversion changes the ride and handling of the Taurine.

Thanks!!

I second this request, I too have a Taurine and am interrested in a 650B conversion. Would prefer to be able to run Racing Ralphs 2.25.

Curious now that you have had some time to ride it - how do you like the handling and overall change in performance? Any details would be greatly appreciated. Thinking of doing this to my Taurine - though I wonder if the OEM 26" geometry (BB height, etc,) is ideal for a 650 set-up?
