Will 650b fit on 26 wheel?

26 and 650b are functionally the same size when you’re riding a bike; the advantage to 650b is the tire and rim options. Running 650b will raise the BB ~7mm, if everything else is the same. Kind of a waste of time since the best tires are available in both 650 and 26″… at least for now.

Is 650b the same as 26?

A 650b wheel is one that’s about 27.5 inches in diameter, when measured from tyre edge to tyre edge. This compares to 26in for a standard mountain bike wheel and 29in for so-called ’29er’ wheels (700c road wheels are also 29in in diameter).

Can you put 27.5 wheels on a 26?

Condensed answer: It’s possible to install 27.5-inch wheels on a 26-inch frame if there’s enough clearance, and the bike uses disc brakes. The conversion limits the width of the tires and could also greatly impact the geometry of the bicycle to the point where the modification becomes questionable.

What’s the difference between 26 and 27 MTB wheels?

What kind of wheels do I need for a 29er mountain bike?

Some 29” mountain bikes can run either 29-inch wheels or a 650b wheelset. These 29er mountain bikes are known as plus-size compatible which means riders can also use wider 650b wheels rather than a taller wheel. The smaller wheel will handle better and with a wider tire, riders will have more traction.
