    According to Shiggy's site, they only measure 2.24, and aren't very tall either so should fit easily.

    Let us know what you think of them.

    Thanks guys!

    It seems like it's all about tread pattern- I've seen 2.4's that fit and 2.2's that don't, even from the same MFG.

    Barry, your offer is perfect- lets plan on thursday, maybe tiger mtn? I'm eager to try out the new 90mm stem JVP loaned me as well.

    FM... sorry, I just saw this thread.

    As Duly pointed out, the 2.35" Maxxis will fit comfortably a '05 ML (or R-X, Blade, ML rears for what matters).

    I tried a 2.35" Maxxis Swampthing DH on the Blade and it's no bigger than a Blue Groove 2.1" (2.2" real) and just slightly bigger than the Adrenalin 2.0 (which sits at 2.09).

    The fit leaves about 1/8" of clearance on each side, and plenty for height... not the best thing for clayish mud, but not a biggie either. However, I can't give feedback on seatstay bridge clearance.

    I hope it helps.

    BTW... a 2.1" High Roller is smaller than a Panaracer Fire XC 2.1"... not even a chance in the meat dept. to the Adrenalin or Hutchy Spider 2.1"
