    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!

    Sweet. Notubes says they're on back order so Universal must have a stash from the first shipment. Thanks!

    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.

    you can put a lefty on anything with suspension corrected fork with either Project 321 clamps or MendonCycleSmith clamps.
    Rigid SS 29er
    Fat Lefty
    29+

    SS cyclocross
    all steel

    "Fully rigid" isn't a thing.

    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.

    I can't find DTSwiss 350 Boost hubs anywhere, although apparently some wheelsets already have them.

    The Roam rims are pretty narrow, are they not?

    I wonder how much a Hope/i35 set would cost.

    Looking forward to seeing this one. I asked Vassago a few times about information on this frame, but never heard back.

    From an email exchange with Tom at Vassago

    The sizing is identical to our standard verhauen frames. The difference in the GEO between the two frames is very minimal… The stays are 445mm long, the bb drop is 68mm, and the headtube angle is 70.5 degrees. The bikes work best with a 480mm rigid fork or 100-120mm suspension fork (recommend the 100 for 29+). The bikes ride great and handle fantastic… very fun to ride! We have them in stock now in blue and black and they have several different dropout options.

    Sizing is the exact same as their other frames. Uses a very similar geo to that of the Jabberwocky and regular Verhauen 29er. I've built 3 at our shop so far. I will upload some pictures.

    Mmmm good looking bike.

    Wonder how it would handle smaller/lighter tires. Is it optimized for 80 or 100mm travel?

    Based on a 100mm fork or 480~mm ac rigid fork. These builds were 24 and 25 lbs respectively.

    This one has Velocity Dually rims laced to Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs. Didn't weigh after I build them... but they seemed relatively light for their width.

    They might move more frames if they showed the geometry, or responded to emails.

    Which list? The list of absurdly priced but otherwise not groundbreaking frames?

    They want $3600 for FRAME ONLY

    Ridiculous. At that price I'll have Walt build me something truely unique and probably much more versatile for half the price.

    Final build weight?

    Chainstay length?

    If its the same weight as the Stache (lighter than the Krampus) and has shorter than Krampus chainstays...it might be my next bike.

    Weight came in just under 26 pounds (wheelset and tires is not exactly light) ... Not sure about the measurements, but the chainstays are about as short as they can get

    That's super nice! I've been waiting for Vassago to drop a more affordable 29+ frame. I'm very curious how it compares to the Krampus.

    Email Tom, I think there is a waiting list you can get on to get in line. I am local and was able to get one of the first ones that came in I have been riding it exclusively for two weeks and so far I *REALLY* like it. I plan on doing a full write up once I have had it out on all my regular trails. This bike is a LOT OF FUN

    Does the frame use standard Paragon sliders? If not, I hope Vassago offers a drop out with a derailleur hanger.

    Hello,
    I'm on the wait LIST thanks! Just wondering your frame in the picture considered their "GREEN" frame color??? or did you get some special pre-production color? It doesn't look so "green" but more like a "TEAL ish - blue" to me (which is WAY BETTER)... in my opinion.

    They are not the same color. The green one is more of an army truck green, it is killer. Mine was a test color (pre-production) that did not make the cut, but I get a TON of comments on how much people like it...

    TOTALLY in love with this bike, btw. Two weeks on it so far, and it is so much FUN to ride. My Optimus Ti regular 29er hardtail is collecting dust...

    Nice looking bike!

    Aside from the price, what's the difference between the the Jabberwocky and the Verhauen (I believe there are 29+ versions of each, and that's what I'm interested in.). The Jabberwocky is made overseas and the Verhauen in US.

    The Jabberwacky has new geo coming soon. And the Verhauen is listed at a sale price -- is that the not yet updated geometry?

    Other than the Satche are there any boost single speed frames out there? Not loving the Stache as a single speed. Elevated chainstays + single speed + frame flex = nasty chain pops. Love everything about the bike except that. Carbon wheels with boost hubs require a frame that fits boost and single speed.

    hrrm - you think those nasty pops are from fame flex??? I haven't singlespeeded mine yet; but being an ex-singlespeeder i do notice some bad noises sometimes when i am using my old SS stand and mash techniques. i'd be interested to hear if anyone else is experiencing this... the frame seems so over built i never considered flex as a cause UNTIL NOW... ;-P

    It's frame flex without a doubt. A friend of mine has a 5 that I ride prior to buying mine, and the issue was the same. If you grab the front brake, and press of the right pedal you can see the chain get slack. The elevated chainstay going into the seattube rather then bb area is the reason as far as I can see.

    I've also seen a couple other people experiencing the same problem with a SS Stache.
