    Canyon dude 4“ to 4,8“ Tires

    Hi, can someone explain to me all the steps to do on „Canyon Dude CF 8.0 Trail“ in terms of change the rear tire to 4,8“? I think I have just to mount the rear wheel to the rear position in the Dropout on the frame and move the brake accordingly. Do I have to do something else??? Spmething with the chain etc.?

    4 bolts if I remember correctly. Remove wheel, unbolt axle spacer at the rear of the frame and reverse direction and reattach, unbolt caliper and reattach in the rear set of holes. Probably took me 10 minutes taking my time. I didn't touch the chain or derailleur and it is fine

    I have a Lou 4.8" in the back, and while it did fit and was ride-able on the street in the forward position, I felt it was too close for clearance and flexing. No issues in the rear position and bike did not feel that much different.

    I just got my Dude about a month ago and I Love the bike so far. I was riding with a friend with Dillinger 5's that were studded and I thought even they would fit, has anyone tried them???

    Hi, that would be perfect if I didn’t have to adjust the chain or reassemble the half of the bike thanks for the reply . So basically it is ride-able also in front position as I understand. But if it is really just those four bolts to "manipulate" w/o touching the chain and the shifting mechanism, would be perfect

    Yes it is easy. The new tire nubs basically touched the frame. When those wear off you'd clear but frame flex and mud/snow could pack up.

    I played it safe.

    Is anyone running 27.5x4.5 tires in the Dude in medium size?

    If it can fit a 2XL on 65mm rims and 29x3.25, not to mention a 26x4.8 in the forward position (respective frame sizes unknown) a 27.5x4.5" Barbegazi or Gnarwhal shouldn't be an issue I assume.
    Looking for fairly priced 17.5" Farley EX 8/9.8 in Germany or neighbouring countries. Frame only or whole bike, TIA!

    Barbegazi is fine at least on a 80mm rim.. with plenty of clearance.

    Thank you for the reply, this is what I was hoping to hear.

    Is this in the front or rear position of the dropouts and what frame size?
    Would you mind posting a photo or two that shows the clearance?

    Needs to be in the rear position. Not going to give enough clearance in front position, mine almost touches the frame already, so the clearance is basically as much the axle moves back in rear position (15mm?). This was with 80mm wide rims. Can send a photo when I get a change to take one.

    Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.
    When you take the photos, please include one that shows the clearance on the side where the knobs and sidewalls are, if you have a ruler to hold next to, that would be great.

    Thank you in advance! :-)

    Another update for anyone interested, I just found this info from a Canyon Employee on a German board:

    Surly Lou auf 100mm Felge passt rein - mit 4mm Freiheit. Das ist allerdings unterhalb der von der CEN-Norm vorgegeben Reifenfreiheit von 6mm und daher können wir das von unserer Seite nicht freigeben.
    He says that a Lou on a 100mm rim, which is 121mm wide according to Surly, fits with 4mm of clearance. Because of regulations that demand at least 6mm of clearance they can't recommend it officially.

    And on 80mm rim it's about 116-118mm, which would be ok in terms of clearance. Had no problems with Lou on the DT rim.

    One thing to look out for when going with taller wheels than the 26" the Dude was designed for, is the standover height, see my post here.
