    Pics of Rabbit Hole and/or Knard on non-Krampus frame

    Now that Rabbit Hole rims and Knard 29x3 tires are available individually, post your pics of Ogres, Karate Monkeys, and even non-Surly frames (gasp!) with 29+ tires and/or rims...

    I didn't think you could buy them separate from a Krampus frame yet.

    Vik - they are available. Might just be to "stocking dealers" though...

    I haven't built up my wheel yet, but here's a pic of a Knard/Rabbit Hole on my Fargo. That's a Waltworks fork, built to the stock specs, except with clearance for fat tires.

    Where are you guys getting RH+Knards a la carte without buying a Krampus frame?

    My LBS ordered them; Q has them in stock (only the 27tpi Knards, the 120s aren't available yet).

    Have your LBS check stock at Q. If they say they can't get them, they may not be a "stocking dealer".

    They are available online at Universal too, if you don't have a local bike shop.

    Bought Rabbit Hole / Knard at my LBS. They laced it up to a Lefty hub and it fits reasonably well on a stock Lefty. A nice party piece for my Flash Carbon 29er SS

    Pics of Rabbit Hole and/or Knard on non-Krampus frame-flashcarbon29ss_knardrh.jpg

    Inspires confidence through fast technical terrain. A little buzz on the stanchion when pushed hard. If you have a Lefty with P321 clamps you could swing them out a bit and dish the wheel to fix that.

    Need to get a mid-fat on the rear too, leaning towards a (geared) custom build...

    Not sure of availablilty, but NRG has had them listed for months. ME WANT THEMS!!

    I use my Pug as a rigid 29er in the summer, so the long-term plan is to get a set of 29+ rims and re-lace my hubs.

    I'll hold out for 120tpi tires anyways so I'm waiting no matter what! I've tried some Surly 27tpi beasts and they were ugly slow from the uber stiff carcass.

    Good luck with the Pugs 29+ build I'd love to see pics. I've considered that as well.

    Problem is... by the time the 120s get into stock, all the rims will be gone. ;-)

    Being an early adopter has its challenges for sure.

    I had planned a rigid 1x10 KM with RH rims and 29x2.4 Continental Mountain King tires if I did not get a Krampus...I would like to see one built like that, however the Krampus is still cooler

    The Ups man just visited. The Knard on a Salsa Fargo (stock wheel still today) measures 2.5 at the casing, 2.8 at the outside knobs. Has .4 inch of clearance on both sides and two fingers worth of clearance up top. Still have room for my Nitto camper rack. Looks like I'm going to need a wider rim. I don't have time for pictures, I have to get a ride in before work.

    It's not quite rabbit hole/knard not on a krampus, but if you have read some of the more recent Surly Blog entries, it appears that in some of the photos some of the Krampii have fox forks with the knard/rabbit hole.

    I have a 120tpi Knard / Rabbit Hole on my Fargo at the moment. It's really smoothed out the rougher singletrack.

    I posted some pics in the 29er forum Krampus thread of a Knard on a Stans Flow in a Rockshox Reba RLT.

    I posted this on the Fat Bike forum, but my Vertigo Cycles titanium fat bike can accept a Surly Rabbit Hole rim mounted with a 29" Knard

    I've only done one ride, but I like it. Lots.

    Last night I put on a cog that was 2 teeth smaller, and it kicked it out for more clearance.

    A bunch of folks have asked, but in the setup above, the chainstay length is 427mm. With the cog that is 2 teeth smaller, it kicks it out about 10mm more.

    That thing is awesome Drevil.

    Finally got both wheels built. Just have to decide what 2.35/2.4 tire to put on the back.
