    Surly 1x1 29er clearance

    So, i just got a Surly 1x1, it currently has 26x2.4 Continental Mountain Kings. I know from the Surly website that i can make the 1x1 a 29er but how wide of a 29" tire can i run?

    I know someone who got a 45c tyre in one with a 29" rim.

    You'd be better going 650b or getting a proper frame

    get an ENO hub, rotate it to point straight downward, 2.1" kenda small block 8 with the c-stays at about 16.5".
    I posted a pic a year or three ago.

    standard hubs? 2.0 and moved far back in the drops... it's the seatstay bridge that gets you.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    Hi Guys
    While I fitted mine with Maxxis igniter 1.9, I've only rode it a few times and went back to 26's as I prefered it. I realise I didn't really give it much time and didn't dislike the 29'ers but I love it with 26'ers. Might give it more of a chance this summer. Clearance on the Maxxis was tight on the front but no problems.
    Mines an XS 1X1, thats the beauty of a 1X1 in that they are so versatile.
    Must be something with these green 1X1's or maybe its the owners
    Happy trails
    Jamie
