    29+ fatbike

    Anyone know what the minimal chainstay length is for a fatbike in order to fit 29+ Knards/ Dirt Wizard on rabbit holes?

    I also have been wondering this.

    The only experience I have with this is on my pugsley. I had to shave down my front derailleur a little to fit the rabbit hole and knards on my frame. Surly list the chainstays as 17.6'' which is also the same on the Krampus. I would say that is pretty close to the min if you want to run gears in the front. If you are running a 1x setup, you might be able to get away with slightly shorter.

    Just a heads up, the chainstay or seatstay bridge has been an issue in some fat frames with 29er+ wheels.
