That new 29+ bike is nice, If I new Tom was making a frame for a 3" tire I would have waited for it. I can't believe it's so light.

I've wondered before about a similar setup, standard 29er in the rear, and a 29+ 3" running rigid up front. With the idea that the bigger 3" tire would make a rigid more tolerable on longer rides. No idea how it would fare compared to a standard say 2.4" front 29er tire.

Waiting turned out to be the right choice for me, I was going to go with the new Ventana El Gordo to have built up as a 29er + but the 100mm BB was a little much for a 3" tire.
