wow! really a 2.4 would fit an NRS.. what year is your NRS? it doesn't rub on the side?? what do you mean rubbing somewhere on the frame?? is rubbing by the seat tube?YonderUnit said:Personally, I've run up to a 2.4 (bontrager earl). It worked, as long as I didn't use the last 1/4 amount of travel, because the tire rubbed somewhere on the frame. I'd say that you could run a 2.35-2.4 depending on what brand or model.
Another way to figure out where it would rub would be to let the air out of your shock (at least to a low pressure), and exercise the full range of motionchadsterNRS said:it doesn't rub on the side?? what do you mean rubbing somewhere on the frame?? is rubbing by the seat tube?
a picture will be great.. thanks!YonderUnit said:It is an '04. There is enough clearance to the sides. I never actually could tell where the tire hit. I only heard a rubbing noise for a short time. My best guess is that it rubs on the chainstays near the small piece that connects the two together, since it fits the closest there. The tire does change shape a little bit for big hits as the tire compresses, and then rubs on the chainstays. I'll work on getting a pic or two.
