Watching this video from Mike C at LaceMine29.com really showcased the same kind of experience I have been having with running 35mm wide 29 inch rims with a 2.4 on the back and a 3.0 up front. There is a lot of traction to be had. While my rig is rigid and the terrain I have been riding isn’t nearly as techy as what Mike takes on in this video, I can attest to the validity of Mike’s choice in this platform for riding in this way on this type of terrain.
Watch and enjoy. Warning: You may see 29+ in a different light after watching this.
