- 29+ tyres and 'normal' rims
I know there’s lots about this all over the internet – but struggling to find out just the very basics.Posted 4 years ago
I know 29+ tyres like the knard are designed for rims 35mm+ and running them on narrow rims can mean they fold over or need higher pressure…but what do you class as a ‘narrow’ rim, and is that internal or external rim width?
Eventually i’ll change rim, but in the short term looking for a larger tyre for more comfort on a rigid bike, which is pointless if i have to still run it at higher pressures.
I have been running a Knard on the back of my Krampus on a Pacenti DL31 (31mm outer, about 27mm inner) for a year.Posted 4 years ago
Maybe have to put a couple of PSI more in it – I run the front on a 50mm rim at 13/14 PSI, so the rear is at 15/16 ish. Had zero problems with roll, and comfort is fine.
