    2013 Beargrease

    I have a 2013 beargrease. I rode a blackborow this past weekend with 5in tires and loved it. I was wondering what size tires people have fit on their '13 beargreases (assuming a bluto fork).

    Antique 2013 BG here also.. I'm using 26" x 4" tires as my riding has not called for anything larger yet. At this point I feel studs would offer the biggest improvement.

    You could probably fit a 5" in front, Bluto or stock fork. In the rear you will not be be able to run anything larger than 4".

    3.8" Surly Knards 120tpi tubeless work well for me in the SE/Metro Atlanta area and manage a few PR's every now and then on XC trails when I have really fast XC and AM bikes in the stable too.
    They don't design these things for clydes!

    i have a 2014 BG Carbon...I'm running a 1x drivetrain and have D5's on 90mm Nextie hoops on mine.. With Tubes there was about 10mm of clearance to the CS & SS, 3-4mm to the chain when in largest cog.. now tubeless I have 5mm to the CS & SS and about 1.5mm to the chain...

    Oh,,, they are studded as well..
