    What is the largest tire you can fit on the rear?

    I've run a 2.4 Motoraptor and a 2.35 Nevegal with room to spare.

    Depends on what ratio I'm running. I found that 32x20 put the wheel right at the front of the dropouts, didn't quite have clearance for a 2.25 Geax Blade like that. Running 34x20 puts the axle right in the middle and I've got clearance aplenty, currently running a 2.3 NBX.

    You guys are running these huge meats on the SS? I was out the other day with my bud (a reformed downhiller) and was thinking about running something skinny, like an old Continental x-country or a Dart, in like a 1.8 or so. Anyone doing this?

    I run Maxxis Ignitor UST 1.9s on my Unit and have also used a combination of Hutchinson Mosquito UST 2.0f/1.8r for foul weather. Because I'm riding tubeless I don't need the "cushion" that a fat tire gives you.

    I've also run with Mutanos 2.4, Scorpions UST 2.3 and Spiders UST 2.1 with room to spare.
