tyre size/choice – FTM carbon
just waiting for my FTM carbon frame to arrive from On One.
i need to order some tyres.
my riding is mainly xc with the occasional trip to trail centres such as Afan.
i ran 2.25″ Nobby Nics on my Turner Flux and had no problems. On the Yeti and my On One Titanium I am running 2.25″ Rocket Ron (front) and 2.25″ Racing Ralph (rear).
the ro ro / ra ra combo is wickedly quick and very light, but perhaps a little restrictive. I’m thinking of heading back to Nobby Nics for this build (2.25″ evo pacestar variants).
i like Schwalbe as i can go tubeless without buying tubeless specific. it saves weight, and so far (touch wood), i’ve had no problems at all.
so.. what fits on the FTM? will a 2.25″ Nobby Nic go in with room to spare?

okay… will have a look.
on the tyre front, i’m now thinking 2.25″ (or maybe 2.35″) nobby nic on the front and a 2.1″ rocket ron on the back… should give me stacks of clearance and lots of pace… what do you think?
another question… the frame i bought from on one didn’t have a mech hanger (i got it from their ebay site), so i ordered one from them which i was told (on the phone) was correct. the frame hasn’t arrived yet (will be here tomorrow), but every picture i can see has a hanger with three bolts, whereas the one they told me to buy is missing the one which apparently causes the originals to fail (ie. at the narrowest point). is this correct? can i use a 2-bolt hanger on this frame?Posted 4 years ago
