The vintage MTBs that have come into my tiny flipping operation frequently have 1.95 as standard. Moveing to 2.0 should be no concern. I've run 2.1s on the Nishikis as long as the wheel is carefully centered. The problem wasn't the front wheel, the rear tire would rub on the chain stays. But I did come across a couple of bikes that wouldn't work with 2.1's so I'd say you have to try that size out before buying, also, the brand might have something to do with it.
