    Giant fathom 27.5

    I have a Giant Fathom 27.5 with 2.25 maxxis ardents. Iím looking to increase the width and was wondering if anyone knows if 2.5 or 2.6 inch tires would fit?

    You would likely want wider rims to run those tires. I believe those are around 22mm internal. Measure how much room you have at the tire with a measuring tape and see if they would fit. Most local bike shops will let you test a tire to see if it fits and return it if it doesn't. If you want grip I would consider a 2.3 Hans damf or dhr2 in the front. If you want comfort look at biking shorts. Good ones such as endura have a lot of padding built into them and they make a world of a difference. Imo 2.25 ardent is a fantastic back tire for a bike like that.
