    Sorry it’s not a very good picture.

    Almost as smooth as when it’s got a fatfront on but quite a bit quicker on the climbs.

    Thanks stu – did you get a complete wheel with surly hub? Thinking about pro2 evo for flexibility…
    Did you do anything special to set it up tubeless?

    Surly hub? 😯

    No mate it’s a Whub. 🙂

    Gorilla tape and a bolt in vale for tooblessing.
    All the Surly rims work dead easy like that.

    Thinking of fitting a 29+ on the front of my ss el Mariachi – please show me your set-ups, especially if you have cro-moto forks
    Thanks

    Sorry no photo but would be worthwhile checking the fork width. I’ve got one in my swift fork mounted on a P35 rim and there is only a couple of mm clearance on each side of the tyre. It’s fine for my testing purposes as a stepping stone to fat front but i’m not sure it would be much use in the winter with whatever 29+ nate equiv surly release.

    At the moment, as far as i’m aware, it’s Surly’s Knard tyre and nowt else. Fits on a 29er rim but is about 3″ wide and as a result is relatively high volume. Knard at low pressure works nicely on rigid fronts to provide a bit more cushion.

    Ron Jeremy – that looks like standard 29 in a 26 cro-moto?

    Taz – what is the width between the blades on your forks please?

    Thanks all

    Gota.

    They might fit on a standard 29er rim but that’s kind of missing the point of a 3″ tyre. 😉

    Oxy,

    Yep had a 29 wheel and a 26 fork, so just thought I’d see if it works and it does and rather well too

    Stu – fair point and worth clarifying; building a wheel up from scratch a rabbit hole would definitely be the way to go. In my case it was just a test since i had the p35 built up and i’m patiently waiting for a jones test ride.

    I’ve been considering 29+ in my DT Swiss rigid fork (which has dimension similar to Tazzy’s Ti fork by the looks of it; plenty of room).

    If anyone is upgrading to a Rabbithole wheel and wants to sell their P35 rim or complete wheel (on a 100mm hub, no Jones hubs please!), drop me a msg.

    will

    Anyone know if 29+ is feasible with an On-One Carbon fork?
