    New question here. Ritchey ZED Race 29er (700x42) Tire - Anyone Using?

    Anyone using the Ritchey ZED Race 29er (700x42) tire? I'm looking for an actual width as I'm trying to determine if it will fit my Vicious cross fork/Spot CX frame. Bikeman lists the tire as "low profile". The Ritchey website doesn't list any specs for this one. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks---

    They fit my cross bike

    Black Sheep with an Alpha Q fork but the rear is very tight. Plus I have them set up tubeless with low pressures. I'll try to measure them tomorrow and repost. I live 30 miles south of you and I would be happy to meet you somewhere if you just want to try them out before dropping the cash.

    I happen to have one mounted up right next to me! Here's the measurements:
    knob to knob:44mm
    Casing:41mm
    Hieght:42mm
    Mounted on a Velocity Aerohead in a Kelly Cross fork. I can get it in the rear (sounds bad, eh?), but the fit is tight. hehe. On my Kelly cross frame of course.
    Just a regular guy.

    Thanks guys!

    Tires are on order. Appears the 42's will fit, albeit without a lot of clearance in the front. Red Spot has plenty of room on chainstays so the back is no issue.

    Discontinued more than a few years ago. No ZED tires at all in the current line.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
