    i just got one, so i can offer up a bit of useful advice. not sure what the "official" limit is. however, i had a mavic 719 rim with a deflated 2.7 bontrager big earl tire on it and there was a fraction of a milimeter of clearance. if i would have put air in the tire, the game would have been over.

    i later tried a 2.4 WTB mutano raptor, which fit fine. i would not go much wider than that. i have a minion 2.5 and a 24" 2.6 Nokian Gazza that i have not tried yet. i think both could work though.

    hope that helps.

    Sure it does. I used to have a DS1, but unfortunately it was recently stolen. Im thinking the distance between the stays are the same butween the two. I was only able to fit 2.35 maxxis/singletrack with ample clearance for mud and those little rock hitch-hikers that wedge themselves between your tire treads and go "ping" as they scratch your frame upon ejecting back to the earth.
