Hookworms on a DS1

I was wondering if a hookworm would fit on an azonic ds-1, kona scrap, or other hardtails like that? I need a good urban tire (like a hookworm) but it doesnt look like it will fit in the frame

Every frame is different. You need to find the manufacturer's maximum and double check yourself.

Check with your local LBS and they'll know for sure if it will fit or not, plus they will probably recommend another tire that should fit if the hookworms don't.

If not,you might look into the Holy Roller.The hookworm should work since it's a slick.

Okay, Ive got a Tioga 2.3 in there right now and it does fit with about 2mm to spare on one side and a little more on the other. I now think that the hook worms will definitly fit since there are no side knobs
