    Monkey tire clearance?

    Thinking of getting a K Monkey; what in owner's experience would be the biggest rubber you could put in the back? (I.E. the forthcoming WTB 2.55 weirwolf). Your best guesses are much appreciated.

    I think it depends whether you run it as a singlespeed or geared. I run mine with gears and 2.1 is perfect. If you run it singlespeed you can have a 2.3 without any issues whatsoever, but 2.5 may be cutting it close in the rear. Contact surly to find out if it is possible. They are great at answering those kinds of questions.

    I run my KM as a singlespeed and an Exi fits easily. I'm sure a significantly bigger tire will fit. Not sure about front der. issues, but the upcoming 2.55 Weir should work fine on a SS KM.
