    That's a pretty comprehensive list.

    Carver has an aluminum Gnarveseter coming out, maybe this month.

    There's also the Genesis Longitude, but not available in the states.

    I'd really like to get some more options out there. I think 29 Plus is a lot better overall package for me compared to a fat bike or a regular 29er. I had a Krampus, but didn't really care for some aspects of it. I'm holding my breath for the RSD Mutant to get in stock someday.

    One tip, if possible, would be to change your title to "29 Plus", since I don't think the lame search engine on the site allows users to search for a three digit character like "29+". It would make this thread easier to come back to in the future.

    Even though the OP requests the list to include purpose built 29 plus, I think we should talk about the many (most) fat bike frames that will fit the 29+ My next project is a 29+ wheelset for my Beargrease. I sure wish Notubes would get the Hugo in stock!

    They were all out as well - but they must have a inside track or something to parts. Gotta love the permanent 15 off and great service.

    Most rigid 29er forks can take a 29+ wheel, so you could say the same about many other bikes.

    I set up my Banshee Phantom as 29+ using 35mm rims. I had to swap from the standard dropouts to the slightly longer 650b drops that Banshee makes to have enough room.

    B+ PRIME (or Phantom). Let's talk about it.

    True. But the Stooge was designed from the ground up for a 29+ front, so sticking on the higher 29+ front end won't throw off the designers intended geometry.

    I thought that thing came out years ago and had regular old 29er tires? It's not a 29er+ unless the back can take one.

    I saw a couple of the OP's bikes have suspension forks. Other than the Bluto, what other suspension forks are there for 29+ bikes.

    Krampus with Front Suspension!

    Popular choices seem to be MRP Stage and some models of Fox 34.

    I am running a MRP Stage on my Krampus, fwiw.

    In the On One Fatty thread in the fatbike forum, there's a picture of a Fatty with a 29+ tire. There was very little clearance to the chainstay bridge.

    Which frames lend themselves to longer off-road touring? I'm desiring a 29er+ to compliment my wife's Ogre. So far the ECR seems the best fit, but....... Options?

    Vassago is now offering + sizes of the VerHauen and Optimus. Don't think it's mentioned on their web site. I'm pretty sure my VerHauen will be one of the first.

    Try calling Shade Tree Bikes. shadetreebikes

    They are a Vassago dealer here in Phoenix and have a close relationship with Tom Ament who is the owner of Vassago. I have talked to him on several occasions in their shop. Not sure why you can't get a response from Vassago because Tom is a very nice man. But try Joey at Shade Tree, he will be able to answer your questions.

    Good luck!

    I am with seat-boy on this question. I have owned an ECR for the past year and it is built to handle a load. The ECR does have a fairly stiff unloaded ride due to this fact. If I had to start over and was planning an extended tour I would seriously have to consider a Jones Plus. It sounds like the Jones was designed to be comfortable / smooth for long days on the bike.

    This opinion is coming from someone that has owned and early Fargo, ECR and now a Krampus with front suspension. I am willing to give up load carrying capacity for a better overall ride.

    Anyone have tire dimensions for some of the 29+?

    I'm thinking about building a set for my tandem and I'm hoping the tire will also work on my Mutz.

    Radius or diameter woudl be helpful...

    The Motobecane single speed models use standard 100/135 hubs and a 68mm bottom bracket, so they should count as well (though the web site incorrectly says they use 135/170 hubs, BD confirmed they use normal parts). The geared models, on the other hand, use the fatbike parts.

    Are there any short chainstay (under 430) 29er frames that may fit a 29x2.8 on a smaller rim? Even ability to fit a 29x2.5 tire on a wide rim would be great.

    I'm looking for something relatively inexpensive with big tire clearance and short chainstays, but not necessarily a "Plus" bike.

    Anything new on the horizon? I just added the aluminum Gnarvester and the Salsa deadwood. Mike's FS fat-behemoth isn't official or on a website yet.

    What new frames am I missing?

    Turns out that a true 2.8 (3.0 label) fits the rear of a regular Jones 29 steel spaceframe pretty well, even on a 45mm rim. (At least in the 2014 and later version). Just posted my experience in this thread a moment ago:

    I don't know, but those look pretty intriguing. I'll be curious to see if they can really for a 29+, and how the clearance is.

    I see that each frame has two different thru axle holes: one for 29x3 and one for 27.5 x 3. Maybe my next year's project?

    These will still probably sell like hotcakes, and in a year you'll be able to get one at lest 35% of this year's price, and there will be considerably more availability of 148 hubs.

    I'm focused on selling my Pike 275 to upgrade the front end to 110 first.
