    OK I get it. You're just in love with that frame ;D
    As for me - I would love an SS2 frame if it had G3 dropouts and more adjustable seat height. ( I hope Mr. Intense listens)

    I think I have a solution for you :
    • note that Tazer has sliding dropouts
    • and it can have a fork up to 120mm

    Look at these pictures - there seems to be about inch or more free space between wheel, chainstays and seatstays.
    (And wheel axle is set in the middle position!)

    If you slide dropouts to max rear position, you get another ~inch. That should give you an ability to run fat 700c wheel, or even 29" x 1,5".

    What's more! Look what I found - White Brothers ENO Eccentric hub, but it comes just in single speed (disc or not) option.
    With that You should get another 1/2 of inch space.




    All in all - IMHO it's possible to have 29" Tazer HT
    • with about 2,0" ( depends if you want ss or not)
    • and 100mm 29er fork to compensate bigger wheel

    I can appreciate what a theoretical Tazer 29er could do.

    I built this 29er last July with 16-5/8" chainstays, 68.5 degree head angle with the fork at 95 mm and 67.5 degrees at 120 mm fork height, and a 42 inch wheel base. Shown with the fork at 120 mm. The BB height is at 12" with the fork at 120 mm.

    Lately, I've been going back and forth riding this XC and my Black Market Mob at the BMX track, and this 29er is super fun to ride. It really feels good in the air. When I get some time, I want to put a 17 tooth cog on the back and take it to the BMX track. Unlike most 29ers I've ridden, this thing is fun and maneuverable like you wouldn't expect from a 29er.

    Hello Brett,
    Your photo didn't show up yet, or for some reason I can't see it.

    No, not a Wolfhound (they do make some absolutely beautiful frames!). I built this frame myself.
    May the air be filled with tires!

    Here it is prior to my build, it's low and slack.
