pm jimmihendrex and ask him to measure across the widest point of the lower rear stay and that'll confirm if you can run a 2.7 tyre 8)

will sort it tomorrow, probably
its in the shed but i could probably get to it :lol:

edit: my bottom stay measures approx 3inch. top isnt so big though i dont think :? and the tyres would need a high (er) sidewall
