    Rune v2 27.5 tires in 26" dropouts

    We all know some tires fit and some don't, some of us want to keep the back end as short as possible. Maybe this will help someone down the line. Just put up the tire and size with drop out setting(steep/middle/slack)

    Mavic 2.2 Roam XL slack fits



    Mavic Charge 2.4 slack will not fit

    Thought I would chime in since I just converted mine to 27.5 wheels using 26" dropouts. Currently running Ardents 2.25 but once they wear down, I'll try the High Rollers II 2.3 next. Hope we get more responses.

    There was a Rune review where they used a HR2 with 26 dropouts. They said it was tight but it did fit. I switched to 27.5 dropouts when I had a Mavic Charge in back, that tire is gigantic.

    Can you tell the difference with the slightly longer chain stay?

    TBH I hardly ride this bike so I cant really tell. I ride my Paradox 90% of the time and the Rune more or less is a park bike now till the lift closes.
