    Currently running a 2.4 x-king in a Swift fork but would like to try something bigger. I doubt the fork will take a 3″ so what are my options? Any recommendations?

    you can get 2.5 minions and I think shorty too in tough casing (i.e. fairly heavy).

    Nobby Nic 2.6 is due apr 17 – so ages! Think some lighter 2.6 options will be coming through eventually..

    Any bigger and you’d probably need fatter rims anyway, if they’re not that wide already…

    The 2.4 x-king is small, too, mine measured almost spot on 2.2- do you need a 2.5, or do you just need an honest 2.4 or even 2.3?

    Minion 2.5 is a little undersized I think- not sure but I think mine are both about 2.4, on an i23 rim. And obviously very unlike an x-king!

    The new Swift fork takes a plus tyre easily (I’ve got a Chronicle on i35mm rim with space), Minion dhf 2.5 doesn’t seem massive compared to 2.35, but I’ve not measured mine.

    Lots of tyres are bigger than an X-King 2.4 – Magic Mary and Hans Dampf 2.35, Trail King 2.4, Minion 2.5, etc. Can’t think of any which are less knobbly like an X-King, but there must be some!
