    Can I fit a 2.6 Nobby Nic front tire on a 2015 Yeti SB5C?

    Can someone give me a “SURE”!!!! answer on this?

    Specifically, I mean: “Can I put a 2.6 Nobby Nic front tire on a Derby rim attached to a 2015 non-boost Fox fork on a 2015 Yeti SB5C????

    I’m highly frustrated because I called Yeti customer service and the employee I asked this question to didn’t know for sure. So, I called 20 Yeti bike dealers in Colorado thinking I could get a definitive answer but all I got was “yes, no and maybe”.

    Please give me a definitive yes or no answer to my question. I have so little faith in people’s ability to answer this question. In fact, I’m counting on you to give me the wrong answer and I’ll probably lose $90 trying to do something that won’t work because somebody said it would. LOL. But seriously, I want a TRUE answer to this question.

    Thank you!

    Did you at least provide the internal rim width of the derby rim when you asked all those people?
    Also, I think you can try posting in the Yeti subforum, you should have better luck there.

    Why are you calling Yeti and Yeti dealers rather than Fox? You are talking about a front tire, I'm not sure what your choice of frame has to do with that.

    Oh man, I read through only parts of his rant that I failed to notice that OP was asking about the front, lol!! That's a fail on my end as well as OP's for asking the wrong people for hi question.

    This.

    Your question has nothing to do with Yeti, OP.

    OK. I just want to know if you can put a 2.6 Nobby Nic tire on a Derby rim (35mm IW) attached to a 2015 non-boost Fox 34 fork? To be clear, this is a 27.5 rim. Will it fit or not? Yes, the bike doesn’t matter. Just want to know if I can fit this tire in my fork.

    Please only answer this question if you know the answer for sure 100%.

    Well rather than getting arsey why don’t you do some research and see what width the tire comes in at
    How big are these 2.6" tires really?

    Look on the FOX site and identify the maximum tire size the fork takes.

    Subtract one from the other and that’s the answer, or wait for no one to give you your 100% positive answer.

    No, you dummy! I specifically asked for someone who can answer my question with 100% certainty. The website doesn’t tell you can or can’t because the fork came out before the tire did. Don’t give me your bad attitude. I wish you bad luck.

    I have the answer. But after reading your last post, you won’t get it from me. How’s that for bad luck?
