    Motobecane 29+ models?

    I have heard the rumblings... anyone have any links to pics of the forthcoming 29+ bikes? Will they be alloy or steel? Discuss!

    I posted the question asking if 29+ wheelsets would fit on their Night Train or Sturgis models on the BD Fat Bike thread in the forum as well as on their FB page with no response. Still waiting myself.

    They have it on the DB website, bummer they don't have a 10spd model, maybe they are going to see how people respond to the cheaper one. If they made the 29er + in the Ti and Carbon flavor they would out most of the big names in the business. I'm lurking over here getting some information on some of the fat bikes shopping for the wife, I must say they have some nice ones. DB has had the fly as their main 29er flagship for a long time now and this 29er + thing is going to explode because traction is king and so is simplicity.

    The Night Train and Sturgis will fit a 29+ and I'm liking those right now. BUT, a nice STEEL model would be awesome.

    It looks like it will maybe be called the Motobecane X5? Super keen to see the bike, after being let down hard with the Gravity 27.5PLUS and 29PLUS. I was super stoked for a 27.5+ or 29+ bike in the $900-1200 range with nice specs to match those cool new tires, and it looks like it might be happening.
