    rear-end clearance

    i have a steel Sycip with a Ventana 29er rear. how big of a tire will fit? i'm running schwalbe racing ralph 2.25's and it doesn't leave a whole lot of room. maybe it's more then i think but... i just don't want to get a tire and not have it fit. i'm thinking of something like a nobby nic 2.3 on the rear.
    will you rep me?

    I've run a 2.4 MotoRap as well as 2.35 Nevegals, I think the Knobby Nic will be fine.

    The widest tire I've fit was a Michellin DH 24 tubeless 2.2 which is alot wider than the 2.4 Trailking on there now.
