    Talas and Revelation clearance for Kenda BG or Nev 2.5's

    I'm about to pull the trigger on some Kenda BG 2.35's, 2.5's and Nev 2.35's and 2.5's (it's going on a few different bikes). Will I have any clearance issues on the 575 front and rear? I'm currently running Mutano 2.4's and Michelin AM 2.25's.
    Thanks!

    You'll be fine on the rear and w/the Fox with 2.5's ...can't speak to the Rock Shox.

    You think the 575 rear will handle 2.5s? My 2.1 Nevegals fill it up pretty well, I am surprised to hear someone say that it would take 2 sizes bigger.

    This is from the Yeti site FAQ....

    The 575 can accept up to a 2.5” rear tire.

    But we all know that "2.5" is a very subject measurement that varies widely between tires.

    The Nevegal is a huge 2.1, compared to the Schwalbe Big Jim 2.25 that I have that is smaller than the Nevegal. Maybe the difference in size between the 2.1 & 2.5 isn't that big in the Nevegals, I've only seen the 2.35 (which is noticeably bigger than the 2.1).

    I guess someone will just have to post up some tire clearance shots....

    FWIW... I've run 2.5 IRC Trailbears with no issues.
