  • TLDR; I wonder if the 2.25″ On One Smörgåsbord will work on the stock 38mm Marin Pine Mountain Rim? Seems like really stretching it?

    Long:
    The 2019 Marin Pine Mountains are being sold at ridiculous prices. It has awesome fender mounting points both front (an extra bridge at tire height) and rear. Have a Genesis Longitude on order, but it will require ugly hacks and possibly a not so nice fender line (no drilled chainstay or/and seatstay bridge).

    Will be used for travel and commuting and full coverage SKS fenders are a must. 65mm is the widest “normal” SKS fender. Will the 2.25″ On One Smörgåsbord work with the 38mm rim? The Longitude has 35mm rims (and not that horrid 141×9 fake boost rear hub).

    It will be fine for general use, I’ve had a 2.25 tyre on a 45mm internal rim. The tread profile was a bit more flattened off but perfectly usable.
