    29+ tires in a 2020 Rift Zone?

    Anyone have a tire bigger than 29x2.6 on their 2020 Rift Zone?

    I've run a 2.6 WTB Ranger, but it doesn't leave much room at the chainstays. A jump to 2.8 may work with the right tire, but 2.6 to 2.8 is a much bigger jump than it sounds. I have a 3.0 Rocket Ron on a hardtail and it was a definite no-go.

    Thanks for that info. I test fit a 2.6 DHF ( it probably measures closer to 2.5) and I could defiantly go bigger Im just not sure how much bigger.

    Just an update if anyone is interested in going plus on their 2020 RZ. Ive got a 29x3.0 DHF upfront and now have a 2.8 Rekon out back. I have the Rekon mounted on a 29mm ID rim and I have about 4mm of space in the non drive side chain stay. That is the closest point and everywhere else has plenty of room. I mounted the Rekon up last night and the tire is at 35psi. Running the DHF at 15psi and plan to drop the Rekon down to 18-19psi and adjust from there. It measures 2.7 wide at the tread now.
