I have a Sturgis fatbike that I run 29+ in the Summer. Compared to my 29er, I have to manhandled it through the terrain a bit more. If the bike was not also a fatbike I would not have 29+. I'm mostly just preserving those expensive fatty tires. The bike itself is really comfortable - I often ride 20+ miles just in street clothes and sandals.Helpful feedback so far, thanks... two main bikes I know of in 29+ are Stache (discontinued) and Krampus. Ridden a Stache, but not a Krampus. Like the idea of a rigid, low maintenance option with the format. Any feedback around these or other bike suggestions?
For those riding 29+, what model and year? Any notable issues or pain points, concerns?
Still curious to hear anymore takes / preferences on the two wheel size comparisons and where you would lean today if in the market.
29+ pros: monster truck rolloverability, off camber traction
29+ cons: my tire pressure seems never exactly right, higher rolling resistance than 29er.
I've ridden a Stache. Great bike!
27.5 is not for me.
