    Riding buddy just bought a T-129s, looks tight out back on the chainstay, whats the biggest tyre that will fit in there comfortably?. Currently a 2.1 WTB on there.

    Hi,

    I’ve the 2013 version and just put a 2.25 smorgasbord enduro on the rear and there’s enough clearance.
    Had a 2.1 specialized ground control on before this and the 2.25 smorgasbord is marginally closer to the stays but has a thicker sidewall which is the main reason I changed from the gc.
    Tried a 2.3 purgatory and it wouldn’t even turn, also tried the 2.2 wtb tyre that came on the front of the bike new and it gave about 5mm clearance.
