With the release of the 27.5 version using adaptors to convert 29er frame to the 650B bike, wouldn't it be quick money if they make this adaptor and the smaller rear triangle available to the public via LBS?

First Ride: Specialized’s new 650b/27.5-inch Stumpjumpers | Mountain Bike Review.

Stuffs to include in the hypothetical conversion kit:
-Adaptor
-Smaller rear triangle
-proprietary 142plus spacing hub laced to 27.5 rim. Ok to just sell the hub so consumer can lace their own wheel set.

Beats buying a new bike for the sake of 650B.

Price: How about cheaper than buying a new 650B equipped bike? $1000-$1500?

Anyone else wants a kit like this?

Not me. Why should I make an abomination out of a perfect bike ? The Stumpy FSR 650 is already a completely messed up bike,I'll give Specialized another year to tune up the whole thing and then maybe give it a try. But I doubt it,I'm 40 and not getting any younger, bigger the wheels bigger the safety to me.
