    Big-ish tires on a Nickel

    Hello All. I'm building up a Nickel and now have just about everything but tires. I'm hoping to run a 2.3/2.35, and looking specifically at Tioga Psycho Genius, Nobby Nic/Hans Dampf, the new High Rollers, etc. Anyone running any of these in that size? If not, I'm open to suggestion. I'm building it for all mountain/trail/good old mountain biking on the east coast.


    Thanks!

    Eric

    I'm running the Maxxis Ardent 2.4 tires, front and rear. These are big tires and fit with no problems. I even have the extended 140mm travel option on my Nickel. No tire rub, if that's what you're wondering about.

    Yeah, my travel is up to 140mm and I'm running a 2.5 Maxxis DHF in the rear without any rub...

    Great, thanks! Guess I don't have to worry much about clearance for 2.3 then...
