      No prob. If you want to see some of the planning I did to get the geometry right, search for xtracycle blackbuck geometry and take a look at my mtbr thread (Blackbuck being the 29er frame I ended up using). Other than fabbing the custom FAP for the tongue to mount to, it all went together pretty easily, despite the frame size.
