    Carbon Firestarter Duro Crux Clearance

    Does a carbon Firestarter fork have enough clearance for a Duro Crux 29x3.25 tire on i45 rims?

    Alternatively, how much clearance is there in a carbon Firestarter fork when using 29x3.0 tires on wide rims?

    TIA

    Edit: I found a video of the carbon Firestarter with 29x3.0 tires and it looks like it has more than enough room to spare for another quarter inch...

    Here is a mock up shot. I pulled the front wheel and tire off of my lefty fork and mocked it up in my deadwood for you. The thru axle from the Salsa fork was close to the same size as the bearings in the lefty hub, so this is a pretty accurate placement. Tires are mounted on Hugo rims
