    2.35" IKON for SB-95 ... tire clearance?

    I'm gathering parts for an SB95 (medium aluminum)

    Has anyone successfully run a Maxxis IKON 2.35 exo as a rear tire?

    Clearance issues w/ a front derailleur?

    thanks!

    Throwing it out there that the Ikon 2.35 is the slightest bit smaller then a 29x2.4 Ardent, like 1mm narrower across the knobs and 1mm narrower across the casing. Both tires mounted on the same rims.

    If the 2.4 Ardent fits you should be fine with the 2.35 Ikon.

    I have one on my carbon also but the carbon DOES have more tire clearance than the aluminum model
