    I hope they're using a 150mm rear end on that Ti 29+!

    Looks like a Shimano 12x142 in that picture. I can't wait for the OX Platinum 29+ bike, if it is at the VerHauen pricepoint (~$1000), I am in.

    Weird setup with 83mm BB but standard width dropouts (if that's what it uses). I would think if you are going to use an 83mm BB shell, go ahead and use a 150mm spaced rear end for better chainline and clearance. Using just one of the other seems not right.

    But I love seeing more 29+ options.

    BTW, what options are out there for 83mm BB?

    It turns out that the bb shell is 83mm for pressfit bb. I'd rather see 83mm threaded with a 150mm rear end, like drj0n's(drj0nswanderings | Just another WordPress.com site). Race Face has plenty of cranks that work with 83mm threaded. There are actually more manufacturers out there than most people realize.
