    On One 29+...

    Since you guys respond fast to changes in the market I hope we'll see a 29er from you that can take Surly's 29+ Knard tires on 50mm 29er rim.

    A lighter carbon version would be a good addition to the niche.

    My only request is keep the swappable dropouts so we can run gears, IGH/SS setups.
    Safe riding,

    On One 29+...

    I vote for this too!

    Looks like I can get a 2.7 tire in my Lurcher monocoque carbon fork but probably not in the back. How about 3.0 all-around?

    With clearance for the inevitable 29 x 3.0 knobbies as well.

    I'm not sure how many tyre makers will get into 29 x 3" tyres, but maybe a few could get into reasonable weight 26" x 3" so I'd settle for a 26" x 3", (less than a kilo) version of the Floater or Chunkey Monkey, along with an Inbred frame designed to accommodate it.

    Just like fat bikes Surly will lead the way with 29+ rubber. I expect they'll want to keep the Krampus hype going for next season and my guess is a set of front and rear specific 29+ tires.

    I would love some SS 29+ swap drops for an Inbred frame.
    May have to run a larger rotor out back (203mm) but would give it a go.
