Wow, noticed this over on singletrackworld (STW) thought it was a pure singlespeed...which is mega cool, spotted gears too...which makes it even more interesting...been missing 29” ever since retiring my somewhat short lived and super speedy / spendy Phil Wood Piss Off singlespeed...

It runs a 2.35 at the moment, how big do you want to go?
The dropouts would slide back for something fatter I’m sure.

My current 29er has 2.4 Ardent on 35mm rims and would like to know if that fits.
Can you please meassure the width and make a pic of the clearance with your tires?

2.35” = 59.69mm
2.4” = 60.96mm
so there’s 1.27mm difference in width!
I’ll take a pic of clearance, but running a 2.4 won’t be an issue 8)

Here you go! 8)
There's loads of room, ruler shows there's a 7mm gap either side of the tyre at the closest point.
The dropouts can still go back 8mm, so I reckon a 2.6 would fit with the wheel pulled back. :wink:
Cheers!
