Hi folks

I am a newbie of about a couple of weeks.

I am attempting to restore a Giant ATX 890 which looks similar to:

I was wondering whether anyone could give me a steer and let me know if the Onza Canis tyres would fit on my bike.

Many thanks

How wide are the tyres mate? If below 2.1 I'd have thought they'd be fine, maybe even as big as 2.3?

Hi Brocklanders123. Many thanks for your reply. Sorry for late feedback.

After careful consideration, I have imported some Schawbe City Jets with skinwalls.

I aim to retain the retro appeal of the bike - however need to commute 34Km each day to/from work:
