    Steel plus frame that offers dropouts for both 142 and 148mm rear hubs?

    My quest: A singlespeed steel frame that can fit both my older 29er wheels (142mm hubs) AND a new set of carbon 27.5+ wheels (148mm hubs).

    Note: My older 29er wheels use Hadley hubs that CANNOT be adapted to 148mm.

    The only frame I've found that has this capability is the Advocate Hayduke. Are there any others that I may be missing?

    Unfortunately, I'm just having a lot of trouble mentally getting past the 7 pound weight of the Hayduke frame... lol

    Hell yeah! I didn't know about the new Gnot Boost dropouts.

    I'll definitely check it out if/when they manage to release them before March.

    I believe the 2017 Nimble 9 is available with both size dropouts. Not specifically a plus frame, but definitely plus friendly.

    Do you happen to have a link with info for the 142mm dropouts/adapters on the new N9? My Google-fu is failing -- I can't find anything. Everything I'm seeing is only listing standard 148mm boost.

    Edit: nevermInd, I found their post about it. I love their frames, so this could be a winner; and, it turns out that their gen3 actually is a boost-specific frame. Thanks for the tip!

    We are producing a VERY LIMITED amount of 142x12mm dropouts for the new N9 Boost to help our riders get by until they upgrade to a 148x12mm wheel. Just keep in mind the new frame was designed around Boost with a 52mm chainline, not the 49mm chainline standard that should go with a 142x12mm rear.
