Bicycle frame Metal Iron Steel Aluminium
Hi all,
I just bought what I believe is a 2006 Santa Cruz Blur XC frame. I plan to transfer my custom built hard tail to this FS frame. My prior frame was a 2012 Cannondale Trail 6 frame.

My concern came when I mounted my rear wheel and had 1/4 cm clearance. I have read where others have used 2.1 Nevegals and even 2.25 or 2.35 tires. My tire is a UST Kenda small block 8 on a 2013 Mavic Crossride wheel.

I have since ordered a Crossmax EXO tire because I understand Kenda has a taller sidewall. Has anyone encountered this problem - the rear tire being too large for the frame?
