Is anybody having issues with the small amount of clearance between the tire and the top bar of the front fox fork? I currently have Enve's with the stock High Rollers. I was on a muddy ride today and the tires could not even have any mud on them before rubbing. My friend's Bronson seemed to have plenty of clearance. Any suggestions? I really do not want to go to a smaller tire. Especially in front. Thanks

shot in the dark, is it a 27.5 fork? Maybe your bike accidentally came with a 26?

I would expect there to be plenty of room. A few pictures would help.

You were spot on. I had my LBS check the serial number on the fork. It was a float for a 26 inch wheel. I guess Santa Cruz had made this mistake on a bunch of bikes. Thanks for the reply.

It was a fox 32. The kashima one that was supposed to be in the XX1 kit. It is strange that a company that makes bikes would not know the difference. I had clearance for regular rides. I just noticed it on a really muddy ride where my friend's Bronson had no problems and my tire would not even go around.
