    Are there stock 29ers that accept Endomorphs?

    I've been trying to learn about fat tire bikes and have learned a lot from this forum (thanks all!). I've been considering a Pugsley, and have spoken with both Mark Gronewald and John Evingson about their bike offerings (incredibly helpful, both very generous). John's approach seems to be the minimalist, with no offsets and fewer gears due to the chainline issues. This leads me to wonder if there are any stock 29er frames that are wide enough to accept the Large Marge/Endomorph wheelset, realizing that without the offset rear there will be chainline issues that result in fewer gears available. I'm most likely to end up with a purpose-built frame, but I thought it worthwhile to understand all the options.

    Thanks for any thoughts!

    You can run normal 29er wheels on an offset frame bike. You just need to dish the wheels accordingly. It's easier to go one way (put normal 29er rims on a Pugs, etc) than to go the other way (put Endomorphs on a normal 29er frame).
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.
