    Fat bike 26 to 29er conversion

    Hello All,

    First post here!

    I am looking to add an additional wheelset to my 2015 Salsa Beargrease (for gravel racing and bike camping).

    It currently has 26 3.8s and I am looking to put on a 29 2.4 or similar.

    Does anyone know what size 29er tire would come close to matching the BB height as it currently sits with the 26 3.8?

    No idea on your question, but I switch between 26x4.8 and 29x2.4 on my Mukluk. Works well.

    It depends on which 3.8" tires you have, whether you're running them tubed or tubeless, what pressures you're riding, and what width of rims they are mounted on.

    The short answer is that something in the 29 x 2.3" range is about right.
