After reading about the 29er clearance of the old 3T Luteus fork here, I tracked down a slightly used one in France and put it on my pre-Kevin Grovel ti.

Now the front can easily take a 29x2.1 knobby or a 2.2 Speedking.
Or 27.5x2.4+.

Limited to a tight 27.5x2.2 or 700x48 in the rear though.

I am a 650b gravel fan as well! This bike looks very well done! I am hopefully going to finish up my new gravel build today with mullet AXS build. Definitely looking forward to trying it out!

I just ordered a Kevin of Steel. I was getting hung up on the ok welds, but you’re bang on. Their thoughtfulness in design and geometry is going to make a way bigger difference than a shiny stack of dimes weld

BTW, beautiful bike build

thank you John! the welds on the Ti version are very good. A friend just got a steel version so will have a look at his next week.
But I am pretty sure you will love yours! it is such a cool and fun bike to ride. Happy miles!

This bike keeps on giving. Now after trips all over Europe and US I can tell it is the perfect companion. No creaks, no wobbling, extremely versatile in any setting from tarmac to heavy duty trails.
I would recommend it with no hesitation
