    What is the largest 650b tire that will fit in the rear of a C-dale Prophet?

    What is the largest 650b tire that will fit in the rear of a C-dale Prophet? Was considering getting Prophet frame, but wanted to see what it would accomodate? Wanting to see if anyone had tried the Schwalbe Nobby Nic or Hans Dampf...
    Thanks for any advice or help...

    I have fit a 2.3" Neo Moto with no issue but the FD clearance is tight. There is room for something slightly wider but you may need to either remove the FD or use the SLX M-665 E-Type which is quite compact (shorter) and double ring specific only. This would work with 9 or 10 speed although it's speced as a 9 speed.

    I could try the NN 2.35" in my frame to see how it fits. It's quite tall but really only a 2.3" by my measurements.

    My large 19" 2008 Prophet 1 (top of the line) is for sale BTW.
