    Mach 6 maximum tire size?

    Wondering how much tire clearance there is on the 650b Mach 6 carbon?

    Which big tires will fit? Some 650b " Enduro" bikes have not a lot of space for big tires, or smaller ones with mud!

    Many thanks

    The M6 i demoed had Kenda honey badger 2.2" tires. the tightest spot looked to be the seat stays. i, personally, wouldn't count on using 2.5" tires with it.
    i need to develop my crashing skills...

    Maxxis High Roller 2.3 is ok and even better if you choose wider rim, for instance
    Syntace 35 mm

    That sounds great, as ideally I would like to run a wide Syntace rim and a 2.35 tyre :-)

    Looking at the various videos, there seems to be plenty of clearance around the chain stay area, so the seat stays and eventually the seat post would be next. I would hopefully be running a 1 X 11 so there would be no cables down the seat post itself..
