Posted 4 years ago mochaMember 2″ tyres no problem on a 26″ wheel – with guards. Posted 4 years ago scotroutesSubscriber Wot does it say inside the chainstay? “Fatties Fit Fine”. Did you think that was referring to the riders? Posted 4 years ago tonSubscriber it deffo fits this fatty….. 8) Posted 4 years ago scotroutesSubscriber 26?: 2.1? with or without fenders; 700c: 42mm with fenders, 45mm without fenders Individual tire and rim combos affect tire clearance http://surlybikes.com/bikes/long_haul_trucker/frame_highlights Looks like you’re already at(or near) maximum tyre width. Rims can make a difference to tyre volume (and comfort) but now you’re getting a bit spendy. Posted 4 years ago tonSubscriber I was gonna drop the guards for this ride, it is a mix of lanes/tracks, I will just tape my rack top up to keep the worst muck off. I am pretty sure a 2” conti tyre fits in, just don’t know which model. Posted 4 years ago scotroutesSubscriber You can stretch a bit of inner tube across the top brackets for your rack and tie it on with a couple of zip-ties to extend the mudguard effect. I actually found an old RRP Neoguard worked for me.
