    Maxis Chronicle 3.0 + Lefty XLR + Stans Arch EX = ??

    Has anyone attempted to run a Maxxis Chronicle 3.0 (or other 29+ tyre) on a regular Stans Arch EX rim and a lefty?

    Enough clearance to the Lefty leg?

    Did the tyre seat properly on the rim?

    I haven't personally, but have it from good sources that running a Flow with a + tire will work on a "standard" Lefty clamp spacing.

    Arch being even narrower, can't see a problem with clearance, but think the tire would start to get kind of necked down and thus, prone to feeling kind of unstable in corners unless run at higher pressures, which, kinda defeats the purpose of fatter tires.

    Tire will seat properly, but as I said above, might not give the best ride characteristics.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Thanks- that makes sense. Might nevertheless be worthwhile for a very sandy trail but perhaps not otherwise.
