2005 Santa Cruz Bullit

I miss this bad boy all the time!

I'm Trying to convert the wheel size of my bullit to 27.5, but the problem is I cannot find a 27.5 fork that is not tapered.
I am using a 2003 bullit that has a 1 1/8 headtube. Any suggestions please..

I think you can squeeze a 650b tire on some 26 inch forks. Perhaps a fox 36. They have a lot of clearance.

That might be possible with 36, but you have to use pretty skinny tires and the gap between tire and the arc will be pretty tight. But you newer know before you try! How 650b fits the rear end? I have 09 Bullit and I when I bottom my shock the tire gets really close to seat tube with 26". Pics please when your "modernisation" is ready!Wink
edit: You should also consider Rock Shox Totem fork, it has a good clearance and a regular tube.

And here's a shitty pic from my "endurised" bullit. After 6 years of service my old x7 broke, so I updated to new XT 11 speed drivetrain.

I'm 230 so its about~ 106kg and I'm using dhx air 5,0 on my bullit just have to keep high pressures in the can, I had a bottoming problem with this shock but changing the shim stack helped alot. So maybe you should consider dhx air shock.

ccdb air would be a good shock, and with a larger rider you can easily tune it to suit you and your style. just my 2cents.

Having a nightmare with Canyon Strive Shapeshifter failings but still got my bullit in the garage. Thinking the old babe might shred the trails once again!! She never failed me and just went for an upgrade, modern tech has failed me big time!

Hi guys, have your Bullits (08-10) been breaking rearshocks? I have problems with my DHX air 5.0. After last rebuild, it started "clanking" on first test ride and before the that rebuild the piston bolt had loosened and the piston had fallen of to the shaft. I'm afraid I have the same problem now. Have you had this kind of problems?

You need a BB Mount type, not ISCG.
You put it between frame and bottom bracket cup.

Thanks for the reply ciechan
I was hoping for a roller type ..the one that has it on the bottom. ..so a iscg won't work . Can you tell me why ?..I've seen a bracket that looks like it is placed between the frame and sprocket. I'm I looking in the wrong direction on this ..I'm going through lizard skins like mad ..I'm worried about damaging my rear arm .
