    Looking for Surly 1x1 riders with 29" wheels

    I know some have have pictures and stuff posted on here before. I have done some searching and it does not pull up what I am looking for.

    I have thought about putting 29" wheels on my 1x1 and wonder what issues on fit anyone has had.

    Pictures and tire listings with an idea of clearance would be great!

    Thanks!

    Seems like you're way back in the drop outs, too. I'd go 650b with a 1x1. Too tight of clearance IMO.

    Well I have been riding a geared 29er this year for some races. I like the bigger wheels and now want a 29er SS. I miss my 1x1 and will be able to get back on it soon as most of the races are over.

    I don't really have a lot of money for a new build, so I thought if I could get some wheels it would be better then nothing. Then I could work on a new frame/fork and swap my stuff over.

    It looks a little tight on the wheels, so I guess another option would be to go 69er until I can pick up a frame and fork.

    Thanks for the help

    Here's some Bianchi's with 650b & 29s: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...hlight=puss+29

    I know Surly will fit 29 too.

    sorry... you're giving up why?
    fit normal tire in the back, 2.1 nano or somesuch.
    don't be trying to slip in a 2.4x29 and you're fine. 2.2 nevegal fit for me, but that's about the frame's limit, fork's better.
    nothing that's a negative beside the higher bb.
    but I've got about 13" bb on my explosif with it's 2.5x26 so having the same on the 1x1 makes no difference. lots of log-avoiding space where you want it.

    it'll be great, do it, ignore the pundits who haven't tried it themselves.

    FWIW, my 1x1 now has 3" and 2.6" gazzis front and rear respectively. but if you want, JUST for you, I'll take a shot of it with it's 29x2.2 rear and the gazzi up front...

    I'd be in for that, but not sure you would want to pay enough that I can get what I need

    Here's mine for sale on CL:

    Works great with 2.2 front and rear. Might have rub with a blockier tire or anything wider.
