Even since I got my bike I was really disappointed with the stock tires : Schwalbe Hans Dampf in 2.35 , as I was getting pinch flats/snake bites almost each ride I went ( never run under 2 bar ,opposed to what they list as a 1.6 minimum) .
Therefore I bought a pair of Maxxis Minions DHF in 2.5" dual ply , Super Tacky front and Maxxpro at the rear.
Today I've tried to put them on my wheels , everything went OK but got slightly confused on how they sit on the rims since they are narrower than 2.35 Hans Dampf's . I know Minions are smaller than other brands but didn't expect that.
What could be the reasons ?
1. Rims two narrow ? They are SunRingle Inferno 25 an listed as 20,9 mm inner width . (full spec here : Inferno 25 | SUNringlé )
2. Tires need to bead in ? side a short time ?
3. Minions are THAT narrow ?
4. Other ?
In the pictures below on the left are the minions - on the right is my brothers bike with the same 2.35 Hans Dampfs
