    Big Apples on Vaya?

    Anybody tried the 2x29 Schwalbe Big Apples on the Vaya yet? They fit on the Cross Check and LHT and I've seen reference to the Bontrager 1.8 or 1.9 fitting the Vaya (which barely fits on the Surly's). So it seems like they will work though likely without fenders?

    Seems like no one has tried it. Would anyone be willing or able to try it?

    If I knew anyone who had big apples I would give it a try for you. But I don't know anyone with those particular tires.

    Would you be willing to measure the distance between your fork blades? I have a set of the BA's on a beater hybrid that has about 61mm between blades and the tire fit fine.
    Thanks

    Possibly, I've got the 700x50's BA on my wife's bike with calipers they measure 47.3 from some rough measurements on my vaya, they'd fit but I'm not sure if they would fit with fenders.

    I hope they fit. I just this minute bought a used Vaya frame off Ebay. I have the tires already mounted and waiting so we'll know soon enough.
