Oh, thanks for the information! But it seems to be a very new tyre...

I thought so, that the Dirt Wizard is 29x3.0. It seems to have huge knobs. When rolling on tarmac you will feel like on gravel

But it is not yet available, quite new tyre I guess...

This Bontrager Chupacabra which Alice Arctan mentioned, also interesting...

That is my question too: is the 29er frame can fit a 3.0 tire ??

It will have to be user feedback as I have a hard time to find any frame measurements to compare to KH ones for example.

Thanks in advance for any positive/negative feedback

I use this frame now with a 27.5" wheel and Schlumpf hub. My rim is 40mm wide. With the 3" tire (Specialized Purgatory Control) I had a little bit of rubbing when cranking hard. The wheel had to be centered in the frame pretty perfect to not rub too much. Now I have a 2.8" tire (Schwalbe nobby nic APX) and it's perfect.

Thanks Eric for the feedback.

So this frame is nice but you need to be conservative with the tire then (maybe the Dirt Wizzard would be rubbing a bit...)

My 27.5+ came with a WTB Bridger 3.0 tire, and it fits fine. The QU-AX website says it comes with a WTB Ranger 2.8 now, but I'd be surprised if the frame had changed. Do they even sell a 29" muni anymore?

Yes. I think, the 29" frame is less wide than the frame of the 27.5+

The frame shall still be the same. They might have just swapped the tire for better performance.

Yes, they do. But they discontinued the 26ers.
