Hoping some of you that have had time to experiment with alternative wheelsets on the 29er Element might be able to help with a question.
I have a 2012 Element 950 that I picked up for a great price and my number 1 upgrade will be to get a lighter set of wheels on it. I have an option on an in vogue wider rim (30mm external, 27mm internal width) which would probably set up a nice tire profile but I'm concerned that with the relatively tight spacing in the rear that I will end up with clearance issues.
I don't have access to the rim to check this out, and can't be certain what the tire dimensions will end up being. So I wondered if anyone has any experience of running a wider rim in these frames .... ?
Any thoughts gratefully received!
