- Biggest possible tire in 29er Reba?
Had a 2.55 wtb dissent in a reba 29er.. 2.4 ralphs no worries on wiiide rims as well. Hans dampf are not that big so unless rockshox have suddenly produced forks with tiny clearance I can’t see a problem. Wouldn’t touch a 2.4 ardent…they are crap. If you want a fork with big clearance my 29×3 surly knard fits in my fox f29 happily.
Edit: see stoners pic shows a 2.4 ralph with clearance on a big rim. Hans has a smaller carcass and the 2.35 is nowhere near as chunky, even with bigger knobblesPosted 4 years agoweeksySubscriber
still bloomin heavy though ime
you’re right about that… 900gr+ they are… compared to 600 for a Nobby Nic. In all honesty i’ve had no issues with the Ardent apart from the fact it doesn’t fit my rear triangle, so now i have 2 of them so when it’s winter (or a trailcentre in Wales) they Ardent is the front tyre of choice for me as it’s fitted to the spare wheels.Posted 4 years agonordofjuraMember
I decided that I need a suspension fork for my el mariacchi. I’m riding a Hans Dampf 2.35 on the front right now (with a salsa chromoto) and quite like it, but I learned on this forum here, that it’s too wide for a 29er reba. Are there any 29er suspension forks that fit a HD? Or: Would a Maxxis Ardent 2.4 fit in? I just like it wide and knobbly … What do you suggest? Ah, by the way, rim is a crest.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks a lot for your advice on this.
