    Surly Dirt Wizard 29x2.75

    I'm seeking feedback in hopes someone may know if the rear triangles of any particular 29r brand will accommodate the dirt wizard 2.75. Seems logical the clearance between stays would need to be at least 3" but that's pure speculation.

    TIA

    The word has always been March for these tires. Expect them in June.

    I would be shocked if they fit in any 29er other than a Surly. I can tell you that they won't fit into any Niner or in a Kona Honzo.

    I have a 2008 Fisher Rig that these tires might fit into. I'm using a Knard on the front with a rigid fork now, but would like something with more tread for snow riding. The Knards work well on dirt, but not so good in snow.

    Minion 2.5s fit easy in my hardtail on P35's but Knards did not. Will take a huge gap. Lenz has the Fatmoth-and that may be it.
    i own a bikeshop in WV thetruewheelwv.com

    maybe the dirt wizard will fit your HT as well?

    I wouldn't be too surprised if it fits a Salsa Cromoto fork, they have pretty huge clearance. I recall reading about someone throwing a Knard on there.

    thanks. There's numerous forks the DW will fit fine it's the rear tri not having ample clearance.
