- Thunder Burt actual width?
fair enough, njee! I’m interested in the 29ers, but they only come in 2.1, whichever wheel size you’re on, and I’d imagine they’d be fairly similar in width over the different wheel sizes.
I was thinking someone giving me the casing width of the 26ers on 717s is probably a better guide than someone giving me the casing width of the 29ers on Flows, say.
I’ll take what I’m given, though!Posted 4 years ago
Just in case anyone searches for the same thing later and finds this…
I’ve found some people saying the 2.1 RaRa and the ThuBu (why not?) come up the same in width, and another person giving these:
Racing Ralph Sizes
Casing width 1.88″
Tread width 1.95″
Casing width 2.04″
Tread width 2.12″
Casing width 2.27″
Tread width 2.39″
Measured on a DT 4.2d rim at 40 psi after 24 hours
DT 4.2d is 17.8mm internal, 24 x 1.95 = 46.8, call it 46.0 on 17mm rim.
Call that “on the safe side” due to smaller knobs on the ThuBu, and there should be plenty of room in forks measuring 59mm across the important bit. I reckon.
* = not that safe, due to random internetz initial input, but eff it, I’ll give them a try.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks, Rorschach I’ll check them out and let you know.
You had me worried with your talk of 100 mile gravel race thingies that got cancelled. Dorset appears to remain uncancelled!
Jo, what are you doing with it? Bought, borrowed? Racing/testing? Or just a “Gis a go, mister!” short term loan?Posted 4 years ago
