    Question on wheel/tire size on Xeon 2008 ?

    Can a 26" wheel with 2.5" tire size fit on the rear of the Xeon 2008 edition ?
    Wat is the largest size that can fit this bike model ?

    Thanks in advance...

    ps: my first post.hehe...

    Welcome to the forums!!

    For FR or DH a 2.35 or 2.5 is all you really need on the rear a 2.7 will slow the bike down through corners and make you work harder to get that massive foot print moving.
