    29+ wheels on Gen 1 Nimble 9?

    I have a Gen 1 Nimble 9 frame in the shelf. I'd like to make it a 29+ with Knards/rabbit holes.

    Anyone know if they fit?

    I took some measuremnets of the Knards that I found on the Surly site and compared them to my G1 N9 and it didn't look like it.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Bummer.

    I'd really like to use the frame for something other than another SS.

    I bet a rabbit hole or other super wide rim would fit in the rear with a 2.4" tire though...

    I already run 2.4's on Stan's Arch. Don't think it's worth the difference unless using Knards.

    Sean from Canfield confirmed that 29+ will NOT fit.
