Default Re: Upgrading to 26x2.3 Tires

I went from 1.95 to 2.3 on my mountain bike. The tyre said i needed some special rims that i dont think i have, so i ignored that. It went in fine on the standard rim and fit's the bike fine except i have to dismantle the brakes a bit more to get the wheel off.
The engine chain rub's very slightly on the tire but that is only because i installed the sprocket with the offset set inwards. If i flipped the sprocket it would be fine but there is NO WAY i am going thru that again. So for now i put up with the rubbing.

Look on your bike with the existing tyre check clearance on the frame, clearance on the chains and your brakes if you have rim brakes.
