I've been doing that on a Mukluk forever. 26" wheelset in the winter, 29+ in the summer.
It handles just fine as a 29+. It's just got huge clearance around the tires. I use it for bikepacking and...

On Fatbikes, the tires have an outsized influence on the ride. Way, way more than any other kind of bike.
Not telling you to buy the JJ's now, but I've seen someone go from hating his fatbike to...

Well, I lost about a pound in my case. It was swapping out the super-heavy cheap OEM tubes, not some expensive lightweight.

If you're going through Istanbul, be prepared to be followed by groups of friendly, but insistent, dogs. They aren't dangerous inside the city - they're basically 'everyone's dogs' and are treated...

I have an XL Mukluk, and it feels cramped for my 6'-2", long-armed frame.

Look into RSD Mayor. It has a much longer reach than most other fatbikes, and an XXL size that makes it probably the best...

If I take the bike inside an S&S case, I do as others do above - anything that's not inside the case gets put into a duffel bag.

Considering how long you've been on a wrong-sized bike, I'd get a pro fitting before I'd buy a bike. I did that early on when I was in a 'century training club' put on by a local racing team. I met...

I use Time ATAC because after two surgeries on one knee, and lingering tendon damage in the other one, I need float.

Flats lock my foot into one position in the whole circle, and if it's not...

One thing not being covered in this discussion is the way these systems feel in use, and IMO that's an important factor.
