  • Magic Mary 29×2.6 in Pikes?

    Quick question as Google has failed me…

    Do Schwalbe Magic Mary tyres, size 29×2.6 on a 30mm internal rim, fit acceptably well through a 2018 29er Pike with boost spacing?

    Should do,

    but more importantly have you found them online for a decent price?

    @ the00 – it fits fine in a boost lyrik 29, off a 25mm rim, and, to my delight, with the mudhugger I used to have on my old 650b pikes

    @ andy brad – no. they were £42 from our German friends

    I run 29×3″ Bontrager tyres in my 2018 Revelations with an Enduroguard mudguard. The lowers are the same as Pikes.

    Boost or not Boost?

    Minion DHF 2.5 on a 30mm internal rim is tightish in a non-boost pike.

    I say tightish, you have carefully select a front fender.

    @oldejeans, boost is a real game changer in this context.

    In the case of the older Pike and original Yari, a tyre (2.8 Ranger or 2.3 Vigilante) on a 27.5x35mm rim barely fits in the 2015 27.5 Pike chassis but has acres of space in the 2015 Boost Yari…

    No personal experience with the post-Charger2 Pike or Lyrik/Yari chassis, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find a similar situation even if the basic dimensions have grown a bit…

    Well it arrived today… so I will fit it and try, measure, photo and feedback.

    What are people pairing with this on the rear?

    Wish they did a Rock Razor 2.6 in 29!

    R2 also now have 29×2.6 WT Minions in stock. Definitely fits into a Boost Helm fork.

    Tyre is 63mm across the outermost corners of the knobs:

    And breezes through the fork easily, even with a mudguard:
