Waltworks 29+ / Yamaguchi Road

I just finished building this up recently and am having a blast. Definitely took a couple spills trying to get the PSI just right. -- cheers

What pressure are u running? And how much do you weight?

I'm running 2.35 nobby nics on 41mm 29er rims at 18psi and it is great

Just wondering how low u can go with 29+

And great looking rig!

Awesome! 29+ looks like a hoot!

Looks like a Rabbit Hole rim up front. What rim do you have on your rear wheel?

i am between 10f/12r and 12f/14r

50mm rabbit hole up front and just a standard 29 wheel i had in the back

plan to move to a rabbit hole or most likely velocity blunt for the rear asap

it is scary looking down at the tire on such a narrow rim but it actually doesn't feel bad-- tubeless is also on my to-do list but at this point no pinches on the tubes yet

coming from a carbon epic 29 it feels slow as hell on the road and flats, but worth it for the rest

12 huh? I have been running around 18 all summer. I'm 170 lbs. Tried around 12 when I first got on the plus platform and gave my rims some nice dings!

A lot of fun on the plus bikes though!

SoCal has been freakishly green lately, here are a couple from yesterday.









Bike wise.. i went from a standard rim to a Blunt35 on the rear. Psychologically i feel a bit more confident with the 3.0 on a proper rim, but surprisingly it does not feel any different than before. ** Also ugly frame bag because i was lugging around a camera :/

Yes and he seems like a pretty nice guy. I bought this frame online from an older guy that had no background on it. I thought i would reach out to Walt and he was quick to send me the geo sheet and all kinds of info. He was bummed the PO sold or lost the original rigid fork-- sucks
