Are there any 2.1" x 29er gravel bikes yet?

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Are there any 2.1" x 29er gravel bikes yet?

Only the Salsa Cutthroat and Kona Sutra LTD, right?

My Breezer Radar can take 2.1" 700c tires. It seems there are number of new bikes coming out that can take those big tires now but I can't identify them off the top of my head.

The Giant Toughroad SLR GX can fit 2.1” tires with minimal clearance at the chainstay and a 2.2-2.3 at the fork.

Also the Otso Waheela C is an option.

The leading bike in this category hands down is the Wi.De by Open Cycles. It is Gerrard Vroomen's masterpiece (former founder of Cervelo). It will fit a 2.4 inch wide tire and still have plenty of room for some mud to roll along with it too... And it is a lightning-fast road bike with 35mm slicks on it...

Op is asking about 29er (700c) wheels. From that site:
  • With 650b gravel or mountain bike tires up to 2.4”, rutted singletrack, slippery roots and loose rocks are no match
  • With 700c gravel tires up to 46mm, even the toughest gravel roads are tackled at lightning speed

I had a list recently. At the moment can only remember the Moots Baxter, Curve GMX, Mason ISO, Rawland ULV, Framed Marquette dropbar.
Some probably leaning more toward the touring camp e.g. Cinelli HobootlegGeo.
Not 100% a 2.1" but the Lapierre Crosshill easily fits a 2.0".

Then you've got the Beachracers like Koga Beachracer (now marketing it as also a gravel bike!), Wikkit framesets.

Good list here:

https://bikepacking.com/index/drop-b...in-bikes-29er/

yes, “drop bar mountain bikes”, not “gravel bikes” but the roles can overlap, depending on your needs some may work.
