Not sure if this has been done yet so i thought i'd give it a try.
I've been lusting over the Jones bikes builds, and i see how he's doing alot 29+ wheelsets on his bikes, 3" knard on front with a 2.4 Ardent on the back, i really want a Jones but not sure if i can justify the price, although if i could afford it i would.
But then i dont' get all the bells and whistle options of the Ogre, so........
I took my Krampus wheelset off, took the rear off and put a 2.25 Nobby Nic i had, both split tube tubeless and chucked them on. Granted i had to semi deflate the Knard to get it past the canti bosses but as it is, it rides nice!
The Ogre was my dedicated tourer/commuter but now i think i'll switch that job over to my Cross Check. Although i can see some nice rail trail touring weekends done on this bad boy.
Thinking if i like it i may dremmel off those canti mounts to make it easier.
Oh i didn't stop there, chucked my 2" Mondials with my Ogre touring/commuting wheels on the Krampus, it's lost alot of weight!
I think this could be fun to ride to work on a nice day with a backpack, should be fun!
