    Post your 29 plus! (29+)

    So, I may have missed it... But I haven't come across a 29 plus show thread yet. If not, lets get one started. Will post my set up as soon as I get some decent shots!

    I need to take some better pictures.

    Here's mine. 4" travel, 425 chainstays, pretty normal aggro-XC geometry. I need a fork with more clearance, appropriate rear wheel, etc... but it's the end of the season so I wanted to get out on it and enjoy the fall.

    Awesome, Walt! Love how you did those chain stays. Looks like PLENTY of tire clearance.

    There's about 95mm of clearance, so the Chupacabras have a full 10mm or so on each side.

    Now, chainring clearance... that's pretty tight! That 32t has *maybe* 1.5mm to the yoke.

    That is an awesome bike. Kris is on the VERY short list of people I'd buy a bike from if I didn't build them myself.

    Took these on the maiden voyage with my new Silent Cycles 29+ frame. The build is based primarily on the Jones geometry with a few small tweaks. Love it!
    Enjoy the ride!

    It was partially inspired by you and Devin and that sick bike!

    I did 142x12. Kinda wishing I had gone wider in the back just because chainring clearance is stupid tight if you want a ring bigger than 28t or so. Then again, I don't think I need a ring bigger than 28 with these stupid huge wheels.

    Braap is right! Just wish there was more gnar in Park City to hit with it.

    This is what I have been riding all summer. Definitely by far the most fun bike I have ever had for sure no doubt! Ha. But seriously, I initially went back and forth a lot on whether I really do like the plus platform. There are definitely drawbacks, but there sure are a lot of pluses (heh heh).

    I'd really like to try that bombolini tire. I haven't tried any of the new Vassagos. Boy did I put some miles on an old Jaberwocky back in the day though...

    Lefty powered krampus at the top of reveille peak tx. Tim at two 6 labs really hooked me up with the lefty mod. All new internals and super nice. Makes the krampus a beast.

    Waiting on 60 tpi dirt wizards, the 120 tpi's are a little "ultralight".
    This bike is as much fun as a bike can be.
    It is like a monster truck inspired BMX bike, or something.

    I would really recommend the Bomboloni... About half a pound lighter than the Chronicle (on my crappy shop scale) and still has very substantial sidewalls. Tread is VERY similar to the Chupacabra but the casing is tougher.

    On a side note, I too have an old jabber frame that has seen many, many miles... Was a great rig.

    Sorry for the bad cropping. Took me a bit to figure out you have to take instagram's cropping into consideration before you take the pic...

    I love this bike.

    Post your 29 plus! (29+)-photo-2.jpgPost your 29 plus! (29+)-photo-1.jpg

    I just got back form my first bikepacking trip. 250 miles over 3 days of the River to Sea Loop. These shots were from day 2 when our (18 strong ) group rode up Central FL's Atlantic coast from New Smyrna Beach to St. Augustine.

    This bike rules.

    jb, does that path (bottom pic) go towards SART? I saw that before looking South from the Skyline trailhead, but never ventured that route.

    What front tire did you go with? Next spring is when Maxxis's Rekon and Ikon tires come out in 27.5+, which might interest me.

    Edit: Nm, just zoomed up to read Surly Dirt Wizard 29x3.0

    Another Niner 29+ ROS

    Post your 29 plus! (29+)-wp_20151004_22_23_48_pro.jpg

    Yep, I did it too. It was a demo bike that had been used 6 times. Didn't look like anybody really did anything on it. Couldn't even find a mark. I got a great deal, but honestly I have no idea why I bought it. I have a garage full of bikes. I guess it's a sickness.

    I was somewhat 50/50 on it, but then I rode it for about 2+ hours on our local trails. It does ride pretty nice. At just over 29 lbs, it doesn't really ride like it. I'll put a dropper on it as that orange Niner post looks terrible.

    Lots of gorgeous bikes in here. I was a bit surprised at the amount of custom frames.

    Here is my plain-jane Krampus OPS singlespeed build.



    10 months and ~500 miles later and I still adore this bike. My only issue is that the Knards don't work so well as a front tire for me. I will be picking up a Vittoria Bomboloni for the front sometime soon.

    Line Plus wheels are VERY nice... hubs seem solid with nice engagement (dt swiss internals I believe), tubeless was as easy as it gets... Even with a worn out crappy floor pump.

    Beachracer On-One Scandal 29+ conversion

    Here is mine.
    An On-One Scandal 29 with cutted Fat B Nimble tires on Ryde Trace Enduro rims. It just fits tightly on the rear. Not much clearance then 2-3 mm on each side.

    Chinese Carbon, Lefty Supermax, Maxxis Chronicle 3.0"x29 on 50mm Chinese Carbon rims and Project321 hubs with a bunch of cheap carbon parts (stem, seatpost, bars), and xx1 groupset. Still in the making but almost done. Gotta get the rear caliper mounted (need to pickup 20mm in spacers, I think), trim the rear line and somehow run it through the frame without spilling fluid everywhere, bleed both brakes, retrue the front wheel, redo some of the spokes on the rear wheel (passed and didn't lace on 2 cross), retrue it, and inevitably remount the rear if not both tires, and maybe finally I'll be done...never could've imagined building a bike was so much detailed work. Pretty excited to take it to the trails though.

    Interested to hear what you think of that frame and that fork ( with it's travel and funky rake)

    Seems great so far, but no serious riding. I took it out in the snow today for about 20 minutes, but dang is it cold. I'll post more updates as I get a little more time on it, but follow here for those: Custom Bike Build Experience, Guide, and Help Solicitation

    6'4", unfortunately mucho steerer tube spacers was the only easy way to get the bars up. Might need to investigate a custom boner stem.

    Nice looking bike. Why did you go to narrower rims and are you happy with that decision? I'm having a hard time deciding between 50mm and 42mm. I'm thinking wider might be better for floatation but narrower better for summer use and ability to run 2.3's. How has the ride changed? Thanks.

    I went with the 42mm based on this thread. http://forums.mtbr.com/27-5-29/carbo...mm-996337.html I have a true fat bike, so floatation in that respect didn't factor into my decision. My main reason for new wheels was to shed rotational weight, and I achieved that goal. Total loss was a little over 1.5 lbs. So far I have not noticed too much difference in ride quality. It's been a tiny bit harsher, but I think that is due to running higher PSI and the wheels being stiffer. I was usually at 10 PSI on the stock wheels, and so far I have been closer to 12 on the new wheels. I am trying to avoid rim strikes, so I will probably go down a bit more as time progresses. There is no noticeable difference in traction. I think I have about 50 miles on the wheels so far, and I have no regrets.

    Here is my Edelbikes 29+ out in the first snow of the year and playing with my new Paul Klampers.

    I love this bike! It's far from my lightest but it's the most fun. Primarily built to be a bikepacking bike, I've found that I made one big error... not being able to run double front rings. The mountains here in Switzerland are pretty brutal. After going up and over 4-5 big mountains in a day with a fully loaded bike, I'm really shot.

    They're great! It took exactly 3 rides like Paul says in his installation video to get them bedded. Great modulation and a lot of power. FYI - I'm using them with Paul Love Levers.

    Sorry for the dumb question but most of the Staches I see here are single speed. Any reason for this other than simplicity? I have been out of the loop for a long time and I am currently considering a Stache 5. Thanks!

    My first 29+ love. Still have it, although now it's back to stock and being used for urban assault.

    Just got the Carver a little over a month ago. So far, I really like it. Upgrading the wheels soon.

    Love the Dirt Wizards so far, just riding through the neighborhood cant wait to hit the trails... & the 120's set up tubeless super easy on the Ibis 941's...tight fit hope the new sidewall's are able to withstand some rock gardens and not tear

    Short answer is NO. Longer answer, the Stache frame is an very easy single speed conversion with sliding dropouts. They are great single and geared. I currently have a 7 that is still 1 x 11. I have the parts at home to convert it into a single speed. I like riding single speed, and after I sold my Krampus I don't have one at the moment.

    Since the Stache 5 comes rigid, people that will be riding in on more mellow terrain can get away with the single gear a little easier than those in areas where they're climbing mountains and such. It's a fun bike for where I live but I wouldn't recommend it for everyone. I'm used to full suspension geared bikes but they're overkill on my local trails. I also went single speed to toughen me back up. I've been going way too easy the last couple of years just sitting spinning up hills in no hurry. I no longer have that option so I'll get stronger.
