Nobby Nic 2.35 no go rear HD140
650b/27.5 NN (cant modify title sorry)
Just converted my HD160 to a HD140 with light bicycle rims, and put 2.35 NN on. It clears the 2012 fox 36 Float easily but the back is too tight. It is a squeeze to get it into place past the hanger and once in there is mostly only about 2mm clearance at the yolk. It does actually rub on one side on the edges of the side lugs for about 10 lugs. Interestingly there is plenty of room at the seattube with all of the air out of the rear shock. I am thinking of sanding them down or cutting them, but will not try again. I am waiting for a tire with a tubeless ready bead and reinforced sidewalls. NeoMoto's were loose on my rims and I did not want to take a chance. All others have too thin sidewalls for phoenix. Continental is coming out with 2.2 protection I just don't know when.
