    Crimping titanium seattube?

    I have an unknown brand titanium frame. Fits a 29 x 2.1 max. Plenty of room at both stays for more rubber, but tire clearance at the seattube is non existent.


    Has anyone successfully crimped a titanium seattube for more tire clearance?

    Best advice, accept your frame as it is.
    2.1 is what it fits. End of story.
    If you needed some larger rubber, look for a frame that will.
    Titanium is not workable in the manner that you are considering.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?
