    Can I run 2.3 tire on a Lefty Front?

    Hi all,
    From what I read, I'm limited to 2.1 on a Jekyll. Is that for both front and rear?

    I've been running a 2.3 Weirwolf front on my Jekyll for years. I love that tire

    Plenty of room

    I built a set of wheels for winter riding (packed snow trails) using WTB FR rims and WTB 2.55 LT tires. There was plenty of clearance up front on my Lefty Max.

    I'm rocking a 2.35 Neve on my prophet, no problem whatsoever
    (granted, on the stock rim, so it's waaay rounder than it would be on a wider rim)

    2.5"/2.35" Nevegal

    I am running 2.5" F and 2.35" R Nevegal on 1st Gen Jekyll with Spinergy wheels. Works awesome on loose stuff here in SoCal. Only notice a rub on rear end with a hard G out and occasional "ting" from small rocks stuck in tread.

    Yeah I was running that tire on my Rush and it was so rounded that I got better grip with the 2.1.

    It did, however, fit easily on the lefty.
