Anyone have a tire bigger than 29x2.6 on their 2020 Rift Zone?
Thanks for that info. I test fit a 2.6” DHF ( it probably measures closer to 2.5”) and I could defiantly go bigger I’m just not sure how much bigger.I've run a 2.6 WTB Ranger, but it doesn't leave much room at the chainstays. A jump to 2.8 may work with the right tire, but 2.6 to 2.8 is a much bigger jump than it sounds. I have a 3.0 Rocket Ron on a hardtail and it was a definite no-go.
How is it with the climb? I have the stock tires right now on my 2021 Rift Zone 2 and the bike feels super heavy while climbing. Looking to get a lighter tire that can really climb but still be okay while going down hill.3 rides on the 29 plus RF now and I really enjoying it.
