    Does any one have pics or have info on how much volume 1.95 k-rads have?

    i have a blk mrkt mob and the widest tire i can run safely is like a 2.1, i have been running some 2.0s and they work awesome on this frame, bu i am interested in some 1.95 k-rads and was wondering if anyone has pictures of one mounted or can give me input to how much volume they have?

    thanx

    not a clue, but I would like to take this opportunity to brag about the 2.3 K-Rads I just ordered for my hardtail. 1.95s should fit fine, if not, then that frame should never have recieved all of the glowing reviews I keep hearing. as an urban assault bike, it should fit up to 2.5s if you ask me. 2.1 is pretty small for aggressive riding. That's what I use for hardpack XC riding.

    I don't know, I still kind of think that is a drawback for such a high-end frame. If you can live with it, more power to you. I currently run 2.0s on my urban bike as well, but like I said, those are getting replaced by 2.3 K-Rads.

    why would you need to run 2.5's on an urban bike? unless you do mad stair gaps(but i can even do stairs w/ 1.95's)

    A very simple and widely acknowledged rule is that the more aggressive the riding, the higher volume the tire. Limiting riders to what is essentially an XC-specific tire size on a frame made for aggressive riding doesn't seem logical to me. I've ridden urban exstensively on both a set of 2.1s and a set of 2.3s, and, without a doubt, the 2.3s are much better for the job. The strength of the sidewall is the main issue. In my experience, narrower tires just don't have the meat on the sides to cut it most of the time. Think about it...do you really WANT to run 1.95s on an urban bike or are you just saying its possible. But why sell yourself short? Its a compromise you don't have to make.

    ok, i don't just ride urban, i ride park too... and for the most part, i'm running 60-70 psi so unless attemping a grind on a sharp ledge, pinchflatting souldn't be that big of a problem.
    so i guess you have a point, and i think i do too.

    well, if you run that much pressure, I think tire volume becomes a mute point anyway...so in those cases, yeah, your right.
