Linus Roadster users: I have 35Cs on now, how about a 37C tire?

Hey everybody. I would like to know if anyone is using a 37C tire on their Roadster. Wondering if there's enough clearance for the fenders. I have the stock Linus 35C tires on and they're great but it looks like they might be as big a tire as the fenders would accept, it looks close, but I could be wrong.

Anyone using 37C Continentals on theirs?

About 55mm...but the width I'm not worried about. It's the clearance from top of tire to fender I'm thinking of....I think I'm ok because it looks like there's about 1.5-2cm gap between them, I'm still curious to hear from somebody who's using a 37C tire.

Tires don't always measure "true to size" and can change width after they've been on the rim for a bit, been ridden a little, etc. I'd wager to say you might find some 37mm tires that are narrower than some 35mm tires (the "C" you refer to truly refers to 700c, and the width is really in millimeters). Chances are you won't notice much difference between 35mm and 37mm variants of the same tire, but a quality aftermarket tire will be a marked improvement over the OEM Kenda tire.
