    B+ Spearfish

    Would this be possible? I am thinking no, and if thats the case, maybe something for Salsa to think about in the future...

    I've been wondering this myself. Maybe the WTB Trailblazer on a Blunt 35 (68mm+/-)? Maybe it would be more likely on a Horsethief? The Salsa website has 2 #'s for the Spearfish - 2.25 and 2.35 but only the larger spec listed for the Horsethief.

    BUMP

    it's been 8 months and by now lots of people should have tried cramming the Trailblazer or other B+ tires into the Spearfish.

    Clearance pics?

    Yea I posted there first, but I also know there might be some Spearfish riders who don't follow that thread much. I was hoping posting in both would bring some out of the woodwork.

    Another bump,

    Anyone have better clearance pictures of a Trailblazer in the back of a Spearfish?

    Compared to what? Where have you seen some other pix, I have checked and posted in the 27.5+ frame compatible thread.

    Please read the thread about the WTB Trailblazer too as this tire lowers the BB height quite a bit on a 29er bike.

    The WTB Trailblazer 2.8 fits in the front with Rockshox RCT3 fork. The rear can fit very tightly to almost rubbing. These tires were on a 27.5 WTB Scraper wheelset.

    I have since changed the rear tire to a Trailboss 2.4 to get a good fit around the chainstay.

    Good luck on your spearfish B+ adventures.

    Kind of a bummer, but I suspect this is the case because the Spearfish is design around a 3x front crankset and XC oriented tires.

    More disappointing that Salsa will more than likely do any updates in carbon, Boost 148, expensive only.
