    I’ve got Rocket Ron 2.8’s on my i45’s for the summer, not sure I’d want to go any narrower.

    The FatBnimble is advertised as a 3.5 but is no wider than my 3.0 Nobby Nic. However, it is a lot lighter and faster rolling. Subject to tyre pressures it may be a good option.

    Remember also that a skinnier tyre will drop your BB.

    The “correct” option is, of course, a set of 29er wheels 🙂

    Looking at changing my 3.0 tyres for something narrower and more gravel biased if poss , any options for running on i45 rims ?
    Something that rolls well on tarmac would help as well, as have a ride coming up with lots of tarmac between sections and dont fancy pushing 3 inch tyres up welsh roads
