    Anyone running 29+ rims/tires on a fatbike?

    Anyone running the knard/rabbithole combo on a fatbike? I like the idea of having a bike with a fat winter tire and the ability to switch out the wheel set for the summer.

    Anything to be cautious about or potential issues when looking for a frame that has this ability?

    I was also considering this. Make sure you have room as they are bigger in diameter than the 26x4.0, not exactly sure by how much. I saw pictures posted in this forum posted around a month ago.

    Just have to make sure the hub width is the same. Hopefully the disc rotor and cassette offsets from the hub ends are the same, just have bigger widths between them. Don't have a fat bike (yet) so I don't know what the exact width is or if every fatty manufacturer has a different "standard" they're trying to push.

    I am planning on building sets for my carbon Beargrease and TI Mukluk soon! Quiver killer! I love the fat bike platform and the wide Q factor is better for your hips and knees.

    I gave the krampug on try in the snow.



    Not so good in the snow but it ripped on hard frozen ground. I am looking forward to putting dirt miles on this setup this summer.

    Frame clearance can be an issue at the chain stay and seat stay bridge. I had to shave my front derailleur a bit on the pug.

    It works on Mukluks with alternator dropouts but not the alloy Beargrease.
