I'm interested in the BIGGEST tire people can squeeze into their bike, and actually rideable of course. Please share with pictures :)

2013 Fuji Altamira CX 1.1
(open mold frame, same as Bianchi Zolder Disc, Nashbar)

Front: Kenda Slant Six 29x1.80, measured at 48.68 mm (1.91")
Rear: Kenda Happy Medium 700x40c, measured at 42.44 mm

about 2~3 mm of clearance

2014 Trek Domane 4.5 Disc

Clement LAS tubular 33c, measured at 33.59 mm

It almost clear the rear... It touches slightly on one side of the chain stay. So maybe just 30c~32c max for the rear on this bike

Basso GAP (and also, Coral) steel unicrown fork, 23mm vittoria tyres on 13mm rims, no problem :lol: :lol:

Image


Got some rub onto the inner side of fork crown with 15mm rims, decided to use fork dropout inserts to increase the clearence :thumbup: With those, even 23mm rubino pros (measured 24.95mm with digital calipers) fit quite nicely, albeit, you can't pull a string below the crown.. :|

ohh how I hate these vintage-semi idiotic italian "road frames"..

PS: I know it's not WW, but hey, I ride this thing 90% of the time :noidea:

2013 Domane 6.2

Continental Grand Prix 4000s ii 28c, measured at 31.2 mm on my Stans 340 rims.

I cheated at the rear though. I used some electric tape to move the rear wheel slightly lower to clear the brake bridge. Totally worth the super awesome ride!
