    Process models & 2.75 tire fitment in the rear

    Curious if there's ample space to accommodate massive rubber such as the new dirt wizard 2.75?

    would it be possible to measure the ID between stays where the tire would be?

    got the 153, thats the lower one- roughly at the point where the tread is widest, seat stay has more space

    There is less clearance with the fork though (pike)

    Thank you kindly sir.

    The fork i can address when the build happens and while i'd like to use the pike I may go elsewhere.
    My vision is to build something that can house the dirt wizard 2.75's at both ends without going custom hence my quest. I'd have to use 26" rims but then the tires would bring it back to a 27.5 and pretty much retain the BB height or maybe even lower it a smidge which is ok too.

    I've got to ask...Why do you want to put tires that big on a Process?
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

    Actually i'd like to put them on any full suss 26 or 29er but the potential candidates are very few aside from surly HT, krampus, the new ECR etc.

    I'd imagine he's looking for a quasi fat bike with suspension.

    ding ding you win a prize!! i do own a fat pug and its a hoot but full rigid. I've been patiently waiting for a mass produced full suss fattie but aside from custom and mega $ (which i can't afford) they are not here as of yet sooooooooo that brings me to sourcing a current full suss whatever frameset to accept the semi fat DW's which will do the deed.

    26 & 29, atleast thats what surly has on their site. i'll downsize to a 26 but the gain in tire size should bring the geo right back

    I keep diggin and found some key info from a surly blog. Given the measurement info from kimbers & prestige it bodes well for my project.

    Thats the plan. Wider rims on nearly all categories these days with, all mtn, 29er, 27.5 and the tried & true 26ers is quite evident when reading rags, columns,articles etc so my vision is a quasi-fat full suss do all rig for my desires. It may be months before it's complete but then so was my pugsly and this is what a challenge is all about.

    My apologies for not answering your question proper.
    I've come to enjoy fattness with the building & ownership of my Pug and since no mass produced full squish fatty is avail(yet) i had a vision of something as near as one can get with the 26+ DW and sourcing a mass manuf frameset to house them in. Will it function proper when i'm done?? Honestly i don't have a clue since i may use a 140mm fork to reduce the slackness. Am i dreaming of something that's silly or a semi hack? perhaps but it's the challenge that brings me to it.
