DW-Link Rear Tire Clearance 2.2" Trail King
Hi All, I have just built up a 2012 Flux (Medium) and had a set of CK/Flow EX wheels built up by Dave's Wheels. I bought a set of Continental Trail King's in the 2.2" version and compared to my old HL-Flux with Schwalbe 2.25" Racing Ralphs and Nobby Nic's I find these tires MASSIVE.
The clearance on the rear cross-member is very tight with these tires. So tight that the little "nibs" even come into contact with the frame.
Should I change out to a smaller tire? Race King or back to a Racing Ralph. I just converted to tubeless and would have to go through the re-seating process (without a compressor)
I would have thought to have some more mud clearance. I don't think I will have trouble with the tire itself coming into contact with the frame. I did like not have the chainstay bridge from my old HL-FLUX in that it always was a "table" that collected debris/mud etc. but now this DW-Link cross-bar will become a tire "scraper".
Turner says the max tire size is a 2.2" and yes that is definitely the case.
