    Niner RLT9 Tire Clearance

    Has anyone actually put a 40mm or 45 mm tire on their RLT9? I would really like a cyclocross bike that can run the Clement X'Plor MSO 700x 40 or similar tire. The bike I have now is supposed to run a 40mm tire and it seems to fit with adequate clearance, but upon actual use, either the frame or rim flex enough in high torque situations to cause rubbing on the chainstays. If anyone could post a picture of the chainstay clearance with large rubber mounted that would be helpful too.

    The RLT has clearance for the Schwalbe Smart Sam, which is a 29x1.75, with enough room for mud.

    I'm personally running a set of old WTB MutanoRaptors, which are a 700x44c tire. Again, here is plenty of room for mud.
