    The new rocket ron 2.1 27.5
    deciding to buy 2.1 rr for the rear after realizing the quasi flexes too much rubbing the frame.pretty narrow back there.

    Narrow back thare? On what and what clearances we talking here? The Quasi's arent too much smaller then the 2.1 Neo's(I have both and surprised myself actually...), so I can't see the 2.1 RR being that much smaller then the 2.25.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    shwalbe tires run narrower than other companys.my racing ralph 2.25 is same as renagades 2.0 or 2.1? anyways, my rocket r. 26r 2.1 is really narrow. more like a 1.9 !
    its on an 05 sworks ht. using quasi 2.0 and it rubs when i stand/climb on chainstays or when i angle bike tight into bowl type turns.
    that rocket r. in a 2.1 intersets me.not sure though.

    Schwalbe tires depend on the generation, the first generation ones which were dumped on the NA market to drum up interest in the brand with the green background lettering in the model labels ran narrow, all the second generation or later tires run to size, if not wider than claimed. A Quasimoto truly is a 2.0 width tire. I doubt the 2.1 RoRo will be less than 2.1 width.

    I ment to say surprised if the RR 2.1 would be smaller then the Neo 2.1/Quasi 2.0.

    If you really need smaller, maybe the Rumpkin...

    Fatty Rumpkin 650B x 41 (Kevlar) tire - 10086
