- Kinesis Tripster ATR Titanium
Just wondering what the clearance is like on the frame from a monstercross perspective?
They advertise it as having huge clearances but does anybody who has one care to comment on how much?
Would you be able to fit a 29×1.8 or even a narrow 29×2.0 (like some of the bonty tyres) on it?
I presume the chain stays are quite well manipulated and crimped to be able to have a big tyre and still run a road chainset?

40mm with full guards it says on the site.
Just had an email back from Kinesis –
29er tyre of 1.8 will be fine, but 2.0 will be pushing it; we have not tried this setup.
Anybody in a position to try it. I have a pair of bonty 2.0 tyres which seem very small but no ATR frame to try them in.Posted 4 years agobirdageMember
Glad you asked this. Only thing that puts me off getting one, oh and having no spare money. It really is a fantastic looking bike and my mate likes the steel version. Been running 29×2.0 upfront on a Singular Peregrine and it’s a lot of fun on Downs and road. If only there was a titanium version…….. Only slight issues and more of a problem in Winter is mud clearance and increased toe overlap.Posted 4 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
Don’t have experience running anythign wider than 28mm with guards on the Tripster ATR, but it’s a ridiculously good and versatile bike. I’m using mine more as a road bike at the moment, but it’s fast, light, handles superbly and is an easy ride over long distances on questionable surfaces. I’ve descended on gravel / stones happily on it, but not really monstercrossed it yet. It’s crying out for a play in the woods… 🙂Posted 4 years ago
