    Widest rear tire on Nimble?

    I've done some searching and cannot find what the frame's tire clearance is. Anyone know what the largest tire I can squeeze in there is? I'm talking about the new frame, don't know if that makes a difference. About to pull the trigger... Thanks for any info!

    The largest tire we have tested is an Ardent 2.4... with PLENTY of clearance!

    It might be easier to track which tires don't fit. From the looks of it, any 29er tire ever made should work. (Except for the new 29+ knard 3.0 intended for the surly krampus)

    This frame makes my wide rim and ardent 2.4 look small. Time to find something even beefier...

    I was looking at a friend's 2.2 Trail King this weekend. I liked it for the gi-normous volume. Running a 2.4 MK right now - I think the 2.2 TK will be a really close fit. May have to dial it out a smidge.

    Gotta love Continental - only company that can make their 2.2 bigger then their 2.4!
