700C > 650B "willy-nilly" conversion on Gravel bike with miserly tire clearance

Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Congrats on your first post. For some reason I can't read it. But, if you want to put 650B on your GT grade, realize you'll probably lower the bottom bracket (more chance for pedal strike) and will likely be most limited by the width of your chain stays. Some flare out, some seem to have a constant width (many carbon frames).
