That's it. I need a carbon rigid fork, tapered and thru axle. Basically a Nier RDO fork for a 650b wheel.

SO far, nothing found ouch!

As 26" forks usualy have plenty of room and a 650b is hardly any bigger, might be worth looking at the measurements? or even 29er option so you can swap when you realise 650b is pointless?

The axle to crown Ritchey carbon fork is 459mm (27.5") / 470mm (29")
Niner RDO tapered is 470mm
Whisky number 9 is 480mm

So I understand that I'd be in a more upright position with one of these right? I've still got the SID RTL 26" but can't find the real axle to crown distance. My ruler says less than 500mm but not sure exactly the point to point measure.

That should be the answer. Axle to crown on the 26" 120mm is 470mm. The distance from axle to the bridge is 350mm whereas in the reba 29" I've got is 370mm aprox.

Just put the 650b wheel and the 26" fork and there's a clearance of 50mm. Just the same as the tyre I've got on the 29". Awaiting 650b tyres so we'll know answer

No, but I have emailed asking for 1 unit price. I had to put No company as Company name in other to complete the request. Don't think it's available for individuals yet.

It costs 140usd/set, including f 15mm axle / nut.
The freight to UK by EMS express is 50usd.
and 4% commission will be charged to paypal.

So the overall price is: (140 +50) * 1.04 = 197.6usd.

She asked for glossy or mate colour. Really tempted!!
