    snowshoe 2xl / 100mm rim / 2020 mukaluk carbon frame

    I apologize as I'm sure the person who knows for sure has already posted (but google isn't returning to me a clear answer) - it's an expensive frame not be able to run the "fullest fat"

    Can i snowshoe XXL's on 100mm rims in a current carbon Muk (2020)?

    Trying to choose between this and an ICT.

    Thanks!

    FWIW i did read through all the similar threads.

    About 1/3 of comments seam to say yes, 1/3 no, and 1/3 just asking the same question.

    It does seem (unfortunate for me) that the carbon frame may have LESS clearance than the AL? My other bike option is an ICT, and i think I'd strongly prefer the steel over Aluminum (so not interested in the allow mukaluk)

    https://forums.mtbr.com/fat-bikes/sn...t-1100499.html - says "yes plenty" to the blackborow (Muk precursor - not stated Al or Carbon)
    I see mostly no's, but some yes's in all 10 pages of https://forums.mtbr.com/fat-bikes/26...xl-958904.html

    Don't forget to use fattie strippers to set your 2xl tires up tubless on the clownshoes.

    ICT is a for sure thing.

    Ah, who does not love the fatty strippers! I'm using those in my marge-lites that came with the bucksaw, actually.

    I'm really hoping to use Alex blizzerk 100's... IF I CAN FIND THEM! They seem like a better option, and easier tubeless, too.

    But still holding out hope someone can say 'YEP 2020 carbon mukaluk has chainstays a mile wide!'

    Then my only fears will be the rumored TRIPPLE xl's being released
