    Trek 8.5 DS

    Just bought my Trek 8.5 few weeks ago. Already put about 200km on it.. I love it

    Im mostly road but do some single track on weekends nothing too complicated..

    My questions is.. Can I put 29er wheels on my stock rims?
    I should have clearance for about 2inches.

    My current wheels are 700x38

    My dad has one of these. we tried 29x1.9 kenda karma's and the front fit fine but the rear hit the front derailleur. A different front derailleur and it would have been ok.
