The shortest cranks available for the KH/Onza is the 127 mm cranks,
which might not be short enough on a 29" for a long tour.

I would think so, since it's the same hub, the spacing and everything
should be the same.

A crank length of 127 mm is OK (for touring on a 29" in general). It
might be difficult to ride with fast Cokers, but shorter cranks may
not help that much. However, I'm not sure that the original tyre for
the 29" XC is very well suited for touring on asphalt. You may want to
swap it for something slicker, Big Apple comes to mind.

Yes, it will fit fine. The frame width and bearing housing on the 24"
and 29" frames are identical. I just had a look in our warehouse and
the only difference between the frames is that the 29" has longer fork
blades.

The only problem you will run into is if you swap in a 24" wheelset and
then want to mount some brakes. The brake mounts on the 29" frame will
be too high for a 24" wheel.
