    Fargo tire size

    Did the Fargo's tire size capability change over time? (My understanding is that Gen 1 would take up to 2.4"). What about between the steel and ti versions? Thanks!

    And here's the answer from Salsa (thanks Salsa!). For the archives...


    The maximum tire size for the Fargo has evolved a bit over time. The maximum recommended tire size for the 2010 and 2011 steel models was 29x2.4, whereas the 2011 Ti version can accommodate a 29x2.3 tire. For all Fargo models 2012 and onward, the maximum recommended tire size is 29x2.3.

    I met a guy on the trail not too long ago who had an older one (2012, IIRC) where he had installed 27.5+ wheels with 2.75" tires. I think he was using Stans Hugo rims, but I could be mistaken.
