    2016 Farley and 29+ 3"

    Hey, trying to find an answer to this.

    Looking to pick up a 29+ wheelset for my Farley but can't seem to find any resources about anyone running this setup, or even if the setup works. Or even if running a hugo rim on a 197mm hub is a good idea.

    Anyone care to provide some insight?
    Anyone running this?

    Let me know. It'd be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. I looked through those, but admit I'm at work and was hoping to find something fairly straight forward. Thanks for the reply. I imagine your Farley is a 2016? Hows the spacing for the tires at their most extreme points?

    Are you running those rims on 197mm hubs in the rear? Or are you using smaller hubs with spacers?

    Hows it ride?

    there's enough clearance even with the dropouts all the way forward
    yes 150/197 Novatec hubs, no spacers, they are a direct swap with the stock wheels.
