    What is the largest tire that will fit the 700DS frame.

    Hey guys, I've had my 700DS for about a month now. So far all I've done is put a race face x-type crank in, wellgo pedals, and a coil from a fox vanilla. It's definitely a great bike to start on, couldn't beat it for the price. Anyways, I was wondering what the largest width tire I can fit is. The back looks to be pretty tight, I was hoping to go with a 2.7 but I don't know if that will fit. I measured it out and it looks as though it would fit, it would just be super tight. Anyone have first hand experience? Thanks!

    I have a 18.5 (M) Fantom DS running 2.3's F&R. A 2.4 or above would be too big IMO. There is just enough clearance ... leaving good mud shedding ability.
