Mrs levity and I run mixed 29F/27.5R wheels on our Levos. We wanted 3.0 rear tires for extra cushion and traction and because we ride is sandy conditions in the desert in winter and a 29x3 won’t fit in back.

Here’s a pic of my ‘19 with a 29x3 Bontrager XR4 in front and a 27.5x3 Purgatory in back. I left the fork at 150mm and set the flip chip in the high position to keep the bottom bracket up and not make the front end too slack. Very happy with the handling.
