    Pacenti Mega Moto 2.4

    I'm curious what the outside diameter of this is compared to a 26" tire.

    For the last couple of months I've been eyeing a FR/AM bike that can handle a 2.5 tire, with the idea that I could eventually move up to a 2.3 650b...but with the 2.4 around the corner...well...will it fit in the same frame?

    I'm considering the Scott Voltage, Specialized Enduro, SX Trail, Giant Reign X, etc.

    Mega-Moto

    The Mega-Moto has a wheel radius of 356mm... pretty fat.

    You should definitely look into a White Bros. Loop or X-Fusion fork.

    I would guess it wouldnt fit.........for a 2.3 neo moto, my Reign can barely fit with a few mm mud clearance. I just bought a 2.35 nevegal to try out on frame and fork for my reign.....

    Just for clarification, what's the radius of a 26x2.5 tire?

    Probably not. I doubt there'd be much clearence with the 2.5 26" tire and you'd need roughly another +\-1/2" to be able to fit the 2.4 Mega I would guess.

    As Kirk commented definitely should be looking at a 650 specific fork to run this tire.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....
