    yelli rear tire width check

    How wide of a rear tire are you running on the rear wheel? I am considering the Ardent 2.4 for the front but not sure if I should go 2.25 or 2.4 on the rear. Any suggestions are helpful

    I run an Ardent 2.4 on Stan's Flow with no probs at all, plenty of clearance.

    I run Hans Dampf's front and rear on Canfield' rims with no real issues. Occasional rub if I lay the bike down hard thru a turn at speed, but no big deal.

    Reviving an old thread, but are any of you running 2x or 3x up front or all 1x? Thanks.

    Its worth noting that I was able to run a front derailleur and a 2.4 ardent on my first gen frame but not on the frame I got about a year ago (2nd gen?). I would not call the tire clearance ample but its fine unless its really muddy. I'm talking super thick and sticky mud that you should never be riding in.

    Seems like tire clearance is not the same on all the frames they have produced
    It might get a little steep from here

    Other than apparently a little less rear tire clearance discussed here, the frame material changed from 7005 to 6061 aluminum for 2013/14 which apparently was for anodizing purposes. I'm not aware of any other changes from my reading.
