    Yelli Screamy - 29+ or fat front ?

    Hi, has anyone 29+'d or fat fronted a Yelli?

    I'm thinking maybe a Maxxis Chronicle on a Surly Krampus fork.

    Any tips, experience, pics? Is there a better way?

    And will a 650B+ 3" fit in the rear?

    Not sure on the front but the biggest I have fit in the rear is the(650B+) 2.8 WTB TB with Dually rims....

    Me, personally, I'd go B+ front rear. A 3.0 Panaracer B Fat Nimble (whenver they FINALLY come out) or a 27.5x3 Vee Trax Fatty (again, if they ever come out) mounted on a WTB i45 Scraper in the front and the aforementioned Dually rear. A Blunt 35 rear would help with some clearance.

    Same thoughts going on here, I'm leaning towards a 29x3 front and a 29x2.4 rear, both on 50mm rims.

    I guess my question to the OP would be what do you want the bike to do? Or what do you want it to be?

    The reason I suggested B+ is that the YS is such a fun, nimble and playful bike. I feel that this playfulness would be negated by a huge, wagon wheel.

    If the goal is volume and a little more cush, B+ will offer that and still leave the playfulness that the bike is known for.

    If the goal is steamroller-ability (and to essentially turn a YS into a Krampus), the definitely go for 29+.

    Again, just my opinions, they're worth exactly what you paid for them

    Better way = get a MRP fork and run 29+ with suspension up front! I have been having a blast on my Krampus with some squish up front.

    oh man you guys got me thinking. i'm 260lbs riding a yelli, it would be nice to have some more cushion out back since a full susser isn't really in the budget

    It was designed to however some of the frames had less of a dent in the CS which makes the 2.5 tight. You can tell just by looking at the dent, it should be fairly narrow right next to the tire.
