    Any carbon boost SS hardtails out there?

    That can fit a 29+ 3" wheel? 12x148 rear spacing. Looking for something in carbon that is Available as just a frame

    Maybe there is something Chinese you could find and put an EBB on it. For Jack it is academic, just a fantasy, to put together a light 27+ SS. Jack is sticking with what already works for him.

    Great idea.

    ICAN and Workswell at the moment but you'll have to add a tensioner or EBB, which is what I'm considering doing.

    Is that 29+ or 29- and 27+ (see dirtrag and here which don't mention 29+)?

    The Les-Fat from last year's Sea Otter promises 29+, 27+, 26 fat but has a fatty PF-132 BB and longer 451mm chainstays in 29+ configuration. Still looks interesting and versatile.

    My Bad....was thinking 27.5+. But seeing that Trek (Bonti) is making a carbon 29+ wheelset, is a carbon Stashe 29+ HT a chance for this coming year?

    Yep, desirous of buying that Les. Looking for 27.5+, though, not 29+. Maybe wait till midsummer, when Trek, Spesh, and the other biggies start dropping more 2017 models. I'm half hopeful for a carbon Fuse.
