    2017 EPO Tire Rub?

    Running 2.4 Onza Ibex's on 29er 30mm internal, 35mm external carbon hoops. I noticed the tire is closer to one side of the frame (left) compared to the right. At 20PSI the knobbys touch the frame when going hard seated and immediately when coming out of the saddle.

    The wheel looks true but maybe its out of dish?

    Canfield's site says "650b+ compatibility Up to 35i rim/2.8 tire" but I'm curious what folks are getting max out of 29er wheels.

    I could make a trail boss 2.4 rub a little if I completely weighted the back wheel in a berm at high speed. Only happened a handful of times. Rim was a 25mm internal

    If a tire appears closer to one side of the frame than another and and the frame is carbon and not cracked, the wheel is not dished correctly. To move it to the right, loosen the disc side spokes 1/4 turn and tighten the ds spokes 1/4 turn. Repeat until appropriate dish is reached.
