    5Spot tires?

    I just got my wife her first MNT bike, a well loved '03 5Spot, but the tires are a bit too old school and narrow for her taste. I'd like to get her some wider tires and it looks like the frame can accept a fairly large tire but I'm not sure what the biggest tire would work. Has anyone found the limits regarding size for tire figment on these old Turners? I'd like to run at least 2.3's for her...

    Thanks!

    I used to run Kenda Nevegals and other tires in a 2.3" on my TNT 5 spot back in the day.

    I had On One Chunky Monkeys on my Spot and they are my favourite tires by far. They are on sale and if you keep the order for 1-2 the shipping is reasonable. Research them and you'll find that I'm not the only CM fan.

    Make sure to order the dual compound trail extreme version, they are the dog's bollocks.
