    I fit a 2.5" tire in a Moment yester day.

    It was a red Michlin wild griper mounted to a mavic 321 rim. There was aprox 1/4 inch on both sides of this tire. This makes me want the Moment over the Id for sure. I'm courious if a 2.5 in Maxxis high roller would fit? I'm gonna build it up with a 2.3 to be on the safe side.

    The Michelins must run just a little under size. I have about the same clearence with my 2.35 Kenda Blue Groove. The measure out to a 2.43 at the widest point.

    The maxxis highroller 2.5 tires tend to run a bit small. They are more like a 2.35 or something!
