    Using Nextie 40mm OD rims, NN 2.8 on the rear, 3.0 FBN on the front, Fox 36/150 fork and the Turner rear shock offset eyelet the BB came out exactly on spec.

    Anyone can confirm if a NN2.8 on a 45ID rim would still fit?

    Interested to hear how much clearance you have in the rear stays...I got some tyre rub at full compression with offset bushings and a 2.35 29er Hans Dampf....I fancy giving the 27.5 conversion a try, but I don't want to spend s on new wheels if the bushing conversion is going to cause the tyre to begin scraping its way through the seat-tube!!

    Well a 2.8NN mounted on a 38mm(31.6mm inside width) wide LB rims fit with around 6mm clearance on the chainstay and about 10mm on the seatstay on each sides.
    So I am wondering how much wider would it be if mounted on a 45mm Inside rim..

    Plenty of clearance on the seatube actually.
    I measured my current 29 wheels with 2.2 Ground Control and the height is exactly at 29"(740mm) while the 27.5x2.8 Nobbly Nic measure around 28.5".
