    Mutanoraptor 2.4 vs. Geax Sedona 2.25

    I love the Mutano 2.4s on my old-school, steel, Kona Cindercone SS, but the rear tire rubs slightly when the stays flex under power. That said, I've got three questions:

    1) I bought a Sedona 2.25 yesterday, but after doing some reading I'm afraid it may actually be wider than the Mutano 2.4... Can anyone confirm or deny?

    2) If the Sedona 2.25 is indeed going to cause the same problem, can anyone recommend an alternative high volume, good carving and rolling, light-weight rear tire that is slightly more narrow than the Mutano 2.4?

    3) If I just decide to live with the (slight) rubbing, am I risking damage to the chain and seat stays on the Kona? I've heard of people grinding thru aluminum frames, but not steel.

    Thanks,
    CCSS

    Check the specs on my Tire Site. That is what it is for.

    Yes, the Sedona is wider.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
