    Widest tyres on the SIR9?

    Anyone know what the widest rear tyre is that will fit in the SIR9?
    Hoping to run a 2.35" Nobby nic but it's looking like it may not fit...

    I am running 2.4 RR as well with no issues. The NN might be a tight fit though with the chunkier tread.

    Everything fits, don't worry about it.

    Anybody tried a Knard yet?

    Just tried a 2.35" NN on another bike's wheel in the SIR9 frame - wasn't able to fit the hub in properly (142 vs 135) but from the looks of it there will be about 2mm clearance either side, so it looks just about OK, but TIGHT. If any mud sticks to the tread, things could get a bit messy...

    it will fit 2.4 racing ralph and 2.35 hans dampf no problem
    (I thought Hans Dampf had even chunkier tread than Nobby Nic???)

    Anybody tried a Knard yet?
    As far as I know, the Knard is 3" wide. Based on how the NN 2.35" fits there is NO WAY the Knard will fit
