    Bigger wheel smaller tyre?

    Recieving a new Trance in about 2 weeks and not sure what to get in the way of tyres.
    I currently run 2.4 Fat Alberts on my 26er and love them. I have been looking at the 2.35 Hans Dampf, people have said once they inflate they are actually about 2.5.
    Is this to big? With the bigger wheel and more tyre on the ground do I need to go as big or will it be too slow?
    Thanks

    Try riding the bike with what's on it first, and see what you think. There's room for the HD, because the SX comes with Rock Razors on the back. But the thing to do is form your own opinion once you have the bike. The larger diameter WILL increase the volume of the tire, so maybe you won't need anything as wide, but only you can decide for sure.

    Good point, thanks for your reply. I am getting the Trance Advanced 2(don't think it's available in the US) and it comes with 2.2 Nobby Nics.
