    All of them will fit. Most 2.0"-2.2" will fit with the wheel in the most forward position. Go bigger and you will have to pull the wheel back some.

    Specifically how fat can you go on the fork with a 650b? I have a 26x2.4 Ardent up front but just ordered some Velocity Blunt 35 650b. I'll probably stay 2.2ish in the rear.

    Awesome. Thanks for info. I ordered a Geax Goma 2.4 for the front and Ardent 2.25 rear. I'll post pics when it's ready!

    The fork had ample clearance on the sides and under the crown with the Goma 2.4. Didn't really get a chance for pics. I cracked my frame over the weekend, no injuries luckily.

    Poor decision. I jumped off of a lip and didn't land well. Didn't have time to correct my line before the trail curved around to the right and I hit a tree. The down tube buckled and the top tube snapped.
