Hi all. I'm needing to replace the rear tyre on my ever faithful Tazmon and am wondering on my options. Currently its running a Panaracer XC Pro 1.9" (previous owners choice) which is a bit too narrow for my liking for all but racing (i don't race, looking at more all-mountain xc style), but it appears there is very little clearance at the rear for much bigger, but surely i could run wider than 2.0"...?

Would any Tazmon or ex-Tazmon owners out there (come on i know your there somewhere) know the max rear tire width i can fit on my old trail machine, or any tyre recommendations perhaps?

Cheers, :)

2.1 no problem.
There's width btw stays for 2.35, but there's not much room for bigger tires under the "X" brace/brake bridge.
The only 2.35 tires I've tried to fit in there were also high volume (kenda's kinetics/nevegal & a schwalbe big apple). They didn't fit w/o rubbing that brace.
So, if you find a lowish volume wide tire you should be in luck... or modify the brace....
If I ever make friends with a machinist, I'll give that one a go.
