A wider crown is wider, so you'll be more likely to hit your knees, but in my experience it is not a big deal. I'm pretty sure the Oregon frame is wider than the fat tire Triton frame, and I rarely hit my legs on the frame, though there are times when I rub my leg on the tire and get muddy
A wider crank position, using high Q cranks like Moments, that will help you keep your knees away from the frame.

First of all, Jogi is one of the most fantastic people to deal with.
That being said, I had MAJOR problems with the Triton frame width. At the crown it is significantly wider than the Conundrum AND the Oregon. I can't find the exact picture where I had the measuring tape up to it, but if I recall it was 1/2in or more wider than the Conundrum at 5 3/4". The thin tubes on the Oregon coupled with the disc brake seemed to offer the most clearance of the fat frames. The Conundrum suffers a bit due to the Maguras sticking out on mine.
For me, hitting the back of the knees wasn't just annoying, it made the uni unrideable. The frame hit me more than occasionally, it was almost all the time. I had constant bruises in the short time I had it.
It was heartbreaking as it truly had a magic carpet ride.
I tried KH cranks to put the Q a bit wider to no avail. I tried an offset seatpost too. No luck.
I've ridden both the Conundrum and Oregon with no problems other than the occasional rubbing against the leg. I logged a month on the Oregon and have owned a Conundrum for a year and a half or so.
There was a narrower Triton 26/29 frame available, but it won't clear the 3.8 tires.
Throughout the whole ordeal with the Triton Jogi was supportive and helped resolve the issue. Unfortunately for me I had to send the frame on to a new home.

Thanks for all the replies guys
I guess - since I mainly do city riding (with as many turns as possible - I won't get the Triple Muni just yet.
I mean I do love MUni - just don't do enough of it to justify a purchase of a frame that could possibly turn out to be too bulky to ride comfortably.
Also, I even hit my inner thighs on the crown of 26" Nimbus Muni (dis one -> http://bit.ly/FPW5bJ), so I would assume the Triple Muni to be unbearable, at least initially.
I think I'll buy the 'normal'-crown-width 29"-26" Triton Frame, at least until I get a chance to try the Triple Muni out. Although this'll have to wait - since I've already bought 29" QXSeries MUni - best purchase of my life, so far! xD And the next one will probably be Schlumpf-KH hub
