    Holy moly. What's the size of the rear rim and tire? That must be at least 3.0? I knew the XXIX could fit fat tires through the rear chainstay but wow!

    What is the rear rim/tire combo that you fit in there? It looks great.

    26" p35 i assume? Unless Duro makes a razorback in 29 x 3.0?

    Tight side-to-side or height? The factory fork on my 2009 is taller than those on the first couple of years'

    this might be fun to do!

    Can you post a few more pics. Ive got a line on a frame and this would be a fun winter bike and much less expensive than going with the Pugsley that I really want but cant really justify.

    Just found this old thread via search and am super stoked to see that it is possible to convert this bike as I have the same bike in stock form. jcufari what fork is that up front? It looks like a Surly but which one?

    its the surly pugsley non offset fork. so it has a regular front hub. I would not suggest using a 26" rear rim. I had problems with the tire rubing on the chainstays. I have a 29" flow with a 2.4 mountain king out back now its awesome.

    That's too bad about the tire rub. Do you have a pic with the new set up? I assume the clearance is not a problem.

    I know it's been a couple years now, but I was wondering if you've gotten your cog from HBC yet?

    I did recieve the cog. It broke, the aluminum pins sheared. He told me to send him back the pieces and a long time later he sent me a cog back that had my steel teeth mounted on a new hub interface. I have not remounted the cog.

    Alright so this has been dead for a while. Has anyone tried the Surly Dirt Wizard? I have a red XXIX just like the OP. If a 3" fits then the Dirt Wizard should be just fine.

    Same here, this is an economical solution or maybe a 29 +
