    2.6s fit in my Optic with room to spare. The Sight looks like it has the exact same rear end. In fact, the bikes look almost exactly alike save the amount of travel.

    The only difference being the carbon seat stay on the Sight. The chainstay lengths are the exact same, telling me the same aluminum chain stay are used for both bikes. Which would make sense to keep manufacturing prices down.

    I'm satisfied knowing that what I wear during my "day" job makes me more of a man than you'll ever be.

    NN2.6 is true to size on a wide rim at high pressure. Expect ~2.5" for real-life use. I like 2.6" tyres, however I will admit that when my NN 2.6 wears out I will probably look elsewhere.

    What didn't you like about the tires?

    I don't really like the tread pattern - mostly the staggered side knobs. I'm led to believe that this differs from the narrower NN.

    I don't feel confident with them leaned over/off camber. It could just be my style, as I know others who like them and they're faster than me. I like a consistent gap between centre and side knobs i.e. Minions

    Old thread but did you end up with a definite answer on this?

    2.6" fit. I did flip the non-drive side cable guid on the chain stay around so that the cable is on the outside for additional clearance. I've run the Nobby Nics
