    Tire clearance on Carbon Zaskar frame

    Can anyone tell me what the rear tire clearance is like on the new Carbon Zaskar? I read a review that said the max tire that could be used would be a 2.1". Is this true or could a larger size be used?

    Thanks.

    I'm running Schwalbe Racing Ralphs 2.25" on my Carbon Zaskar, although tight I had no problems last night in muddy conditions (for Melbourne Aust i.e. fairly 'light' mud).

    Any wider tyre you might be pushing it. Although it will depend on the actual tyre itself

    Thanks for the info AussieRider.

    How does the thickness of the Racing Ralphs compare to other tires? Are the Ralphs fairly skinny for 2.25s? Or would it be safe to say I could put pretty much any 2.25" on there?

    Also, how you finding the Zaskar in general? Good purchase? How does she ride? I'm thinking about putting a riser bar and shorter stem on one and using it more as a general trail bike. Good idea?

    Can't say about other tyres but the Ralph's are about spot on 2.25" wide (inc side nobs)

    I'm very happy with the Zaskar, I'm sure it would also make a great general trail bike

    If you haven't already checkout my other thread for more pictures & build details
