    B+ / 29+ N9 (79er)

    My N9 is currently set up B+ as a hardtail.

    Looking at going rigid with a 29+ in the front. Thinking a Niner steel or carbon fork.

    Anybody do some quick calculations to figure how much the geo would change?

    For reference Iím running a DVO Diamond at 130mm.

    B+ / 29+ N9 (79er)

    Iíd google bike geo calculator thereís a good one I use quite a lot (https://bikegeo.muha.cc).

    It doesnít take into account wheel size but what you can do is take into account the changes in diameter. For example the 29+ wheel diameter would be something like 770 vs a 29er at 740 a 30mm difference so I would alter the fork length by 15mm (half the difference).

    Anybody else interested in this?

    I see Cane Creek offers an extended crown race making a rigid/29+ front end able to more closely match geo.

    I think it's a great idea.

    Me too... just need to do some checks on geo.

    Also need to pick a fork. Iíd prefer the Niner Carbon as I had one before, but the steel is more in line with the budget.
