I have a Nobby Nic 2.35" on the rear and there is 8mm clearance. Assuming the 2.6" is actually 0.25" bigger, clearance will drop to 5mm, which i don't think is enough. However, in case you are not aware, the 2.35" measures 60mm on a 30mm ID rim, so pretty much on par with a regular Maxxis 2.5"

Bit of an FYI, I just got the 29x2.6" Nobby Nic APEX SpeedGrip, and on an i35 rim, it measures out to 65mm at trail pressures, i.e. 17 PSI, would drop 1 maybe 2mm probably going to an i30 rim.
