A BB92 BB takes any standard crankset (the same as BSA 68 and 73 mm), it's just that with BB92 the bearings are inside the frame when they are outside for 68/73mm BB.
I finally got it, BB92. I'll only need a pressfit BB. Very good. So the Q factor is within a standard range (3,25 tires -> wider chainstays?), no fatsize crank spindles needed?

Once you'll get into the + size you'll just stick to it, trust me. Pick whatever rims width you want but not for such a wrong reason.
Ok, you're right. It's stupid to consider options that will never happen. This bike will be a 29+, basta.
BUT: I couldn't find any 29+ carbon wheelsets with 50mm on aliexpress or alibaba other than the ICAN wheelset for 590EUR with Powerway hubs (ICAN website) or Novatec hubs (ebay), Peter as well only lists the 40mm wheelset. I'm not capable of building wheels myself. Any recommendations?

Crankset - Standard 68/73 cranksets work fine. Yes you just need a BB92 bottom bracket. A longer spindle crankset will NOT work with the bottom bracket.

Wheels - It's good to consider it if you think it will definitely happen. But in reality, swapping tires is a pain in the but and probably won't happen after the first time or two. Peter may not list the wheels on the site but he can build any of the rims to the hubs he has listed.

Love my 29+ bikes, Trek put 50mm wide Sun-Ringle Mulefut SL aluminum rims on the Stache 7 and 9, but went do 40mm wide carbon rims for the Stache 9.8.  Both seem to work well with the Bontrager Chupacabra 29x3.0 tires (which are very good tires BTW).
2017 Trek Stache 9.8 (29+)
2016 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Carbon Comp 6Fattie (27.5+)
2016 Trek Stache 9 (29+) w/upgrades (Sold)
2014 -036 Full Suspension Chiner (Sold)

Does anyone know which chris king headset works in this frame? For the king bottom bracket, I'm guessing the press fit 24 with kit #6 is what would work on this frame. Its what i've got in my Stache 9.

I don't know. I just bought the headset from CS. That's what I did with all my Chinese frames. Then I just replace the bearings, not the entire headset, (reading the reference on the bearings) with high quality (SKF, Enduro) when I need to replace (not often!).

I'm from another school :)
They are disposable parts to me. Especially the bottom bearing.
I buy cheap bearings from Aliexpress, or even the full headset for about $10 to $15
