I've got a rock lobster team ti. The wishbone seat stay might give clearance for 2.4 tyres, would need to check if it does, and the chain stay can too. If interested in finding out, let me know and I can take some measurements.


Certainly interested in finding out - please let me know :)

Cheers

DeKerfs had quite good clearance I believe. Some have said they were the On-One Inbreds inspiration which has ample rear wheel clearance. Think DeKerf does Ti but maybe somewhat pricey.

Get an on one ti456. Lovely frames . Make sure you get the later one with bullett chain stay ends . Takes a 2.4 as I have them . Forks may need some looking hit . But there be some 100mm corrected ti forks out there I am sure.

Why the 'bullet stay' one specifically?

Would a rigid fork with ~ 450mm a-c work?

Cheers

The earlier ones were flat ends and they broke so do not get them. The bullett ones were made my lynskey and are lovely frames inc braze ons if you want to add mudguards or something.
Just taken a few pics of mine. Tyres are actually 2.2 trail kings I think, which are a very fat 2.2.
Forks should be fine at 450, albeit a bit steep then bike was designed for.
See here where someone has tried them

Think there is a to version of the on one rigid fork, but good luck finding that.
Or get a rigid carbon fork would be my choice.

Sorry for the delay, juggling work and home schooling. Managed to unbox the rock lobster team ti and slot it round a 2.35 tyred 29er wheel in the approximate place the 26er tyre would fit.

Based on this lay-up, I'd say it has plenty of clearance for a 2.4 tyre. I'd caveat that with not all 2.4 tyres are the same. I bought some x-kings in 2.4 and they buzzed the chain stay on my 29er, they were very wide/balloon like tyres compared to the 2.35 onza canis I now use (and the ones in the picture). That said, there is more clearance on the lobster than my 29er.

Pics below. I'd say there's at least 1cm either side at the chain stay with the 2.35s in there (might not have quite placed the wheel in the right place, hard with one hand on the camera, the other juggling the frame and wheel), more at the seat stay due to the wishbone style.

Thanks very much for the info and pics - not sure if a 2.4 will go if the (fat) 2.2 looks snug???


Cheers
