    Snowshoe 2XL Frame Clearance List

    I haven't seen a list of frames that clear the 2XL and thought I'd start one. The tire specific thread is a bit too long for a quick reference.

    I've found a few frames that clear nicely and others that just barely fit.

    Nice clearance on 100mm rims:
    -RSD Mayor V3/V4
    -Pole Taiga
    -Salsa Blackborow
    -KHS 4 Season

    Just enough clearance on a 80/90mm rim:
    -Fatback Corvus/Skookum
    -Trek Farley (aluminum 2016+) (fits on mine, but maybe not all??)
    -Norco Bigfoot
    -Surly ICT

    What else?

    What about that bike Mikesee had built? Was that a Meriwether?

    On which of the 17 pages is the list...?
    Just thought that having a more easy to find reference would be helpful.

    It MAY fit a Farley.
    I tried it on 2 2019 7s ....it fit on the medium.
    It did not fit on a large.( which is what I needed)
    These were both new out of the crate.
    The 2XL was on a 90mm rim
    Mikesee tried it on a carbon and it was a no go.

    Haven't tried it yet, but it fits the Olaf on my Cannondale Fat CAAD, and looks for all the world like one would fit in back too.

    Anyone done it yet? Chime in, otherwise maybe if I get bored sometime, I'll yank it off the front end and try it out....
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    My size small Pole Taiga runs 2XL's on 105 Nexties with no issues other than flipping the chainring to a positive offset away from the crank. I recently tried fitting a 2XL on the rear of a friend's medium size Lurch with MuleFut 80mm wheels. It rubbed on the chainstay arch. I think had I spent more time working to get the tire perfectly mounted on the wheel to reduce the out of round issue and had it been tubeless, I believe it could have fit. I would have also needed to have replaced the axle adjuster bolts with longer ones so they could have pushed the rear wheel back to the very edge of the dropout.

    The '17 Salsa Mukluk NX1 xtra small frame fits 2XL's no problem with the rear dropout pulled back a bit.
