Do WANT (now if only...)
It was convertible between 26", 650b, AND 29" .
I mean, why not?
And if it came with 17.5 mm TA two bolt pinch clamPs OR ta/qr dropouts....
( kidding...sorta, hope it comes with a20 mm option)
(new Fox 34mm forks)

just a thought. if it was convertible. i wonder if we'll see a framebuilder build something with interchangeable dropouts to accomodate different wheel sizes without changing angles and bb height. if the fork does it it might be a good mix. maybe its already out there?

Well, they are claiming it is 'convertible' between 26" and 650b, fwiw. Are we on the cusp of some really cool user options?

x fusion has 34's too. not sure if they're convertible though. coincidence?http://www.pinkbike.com/news/X-Fusio...ail-Forks.html

Well, that, and they aren't Fox...
Would be interested in the x-fusion 34mm x 20mm.

ya not fully up on the deets. idk shared engineer or manufacturer or former so and so blah blah blah. some nice options i'll be looking at. i'd like to get one these shockers in a 1 i/8 and throw in an anglset type thingy. get rid of my old float36 w the 1.5. 34 mm seems like a happy medium

Hey, you got 29er on my 26er fork!
Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

Wait...now lets think....hmmmmm....I'm pretty sure you could figure out how to put 26" and 650b wheels on a fork designed for disc brake 29" wheels. For good measure, throw on an angleset to adjust for the change in steering quickness/trail. Just sayin
and I'm still shocked that there aren't adjustable test sleds from every company roaming the hills that can be fully switched between good 26" and 29" setups in a couple hours (for you really hopeless people, it could even have your middle setting without decent tire options). The fact that we don't see these, but we see spy shots of every other proto in the world, makes me wonder if the big companies would rather just let people drink koolaid rather than actually prove what is the best way to build mountain bikes and sell us on their findings. I'm not a big fan of his, but I do agree with this line "people don't know what they want until you show it to them."
