    A 2.8 will fit in my non-boost Pike so I pretty sure you're ok.

    About that height? Anyone?

    If I disagree with you, it's because you are wrong.

    It's definitely taller. Can't say how much but, don't have room for my Marshguard anymore.

    I can tell you on I29's I went from a 2.35 MM to a 2.8 Minion and the height increase was a touch over 1/2". Also, the casing width went from 2.48" for the mary to 2.58" on the minion. One set of knobs measured about 2.65" (the wider sets) and the other was right at casing width.

    So, what I'm trying to say is, you're increase probably isn't much, since the 2.8 Minion should be larger, and the height increase wasn't all that drastic.

    One caveat: both these were 26" versions (26x2.35 and 26x2.8), though I think the tires should be pretty consistent between the sizes.

    So the DHF 2.6 in the 27.5 to the best of my measuring capabilities has a diameter of 28 3/16". Now this is from the tallest center knobs with a tape measure. It's exactly the same measurement I got for my 2.8 Rekons.

    Just mounted 27.5 DHF 2.6 on Hope 35W (34 mm inner width) and there's good clearance in my 2015 fox 36. Measured the casing width to about 64 mm, didn't measure the diameter. Looks awsome, close to plus-size IMHO.
