    29er favor, please

    Could somebody please take a measure and let me know outside tire diameter of a fat 29? It would be nice to know what size (width) the tire is too. I`m in the process of putting together a fork jig and figure I may as well make it to accomodate any wheel I might conceivably want to use it for.

    And please excuse me for posting the question here in Commuting- I just prefer to keep it "at home" if possible

    Come on, we all knew you were talking to me

    Michelin A/T 2.0's = 28.75"
    Schwalbe Big Apple 2.35's = 29.5"

    I don't have the michelin width handy and I didnt' ride that bike to work today, but the Schwalbe's actual width measurement (at the widest part of the tire) is very close to 2.5". Maybe 2.4" (using a ruler and an eyeball, not calipers)
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    My Soul Cycles Dillinger fork is 3 1/8" wide at the top of the tire...so there's quite a bit of room there, even with the BA's. This fork is "suspension corrected" so there's a lot of room above the tire too, making the same axle-to-crown measurement as a 90mm suspension fork.
