    El Comandante+Schwalbe RR 2.4's=OK!

    I (pre)ordered a pair of Schwalbe's new Racing Ralph 2.4 29er tires a few weeks ago on faith and even though Enel (thanks) tried to ease my mind I was sweating it that the tire wouldn't fit in the frame. I run WTB Weirwolf LT 2.55 tires on my other 29er SS and they're pretty big but these tires put them to shame. These have real knobs and I'd say the casing is bigger than the WTBs for sure. For reference, the tire in the pics is mounted on a Salsa Delgado Disc (not a Race), though I didn't leave it long enough to stretch. I'll ultimately be mounting the tires tubeless on a pair of Stan's Arch rims (if they ever friggin' get here) on the El Cidmandante. One pic of the seatstay clearance and one pic of the chainstay clearance. I won't be counting on any clearance in mud but I'm OK with that.

    Glad it worked out. I like the looks of that tire. Fits okay, just don't break a spoke.
