    Fisticuff questions

    I think this is the best subforum to post this question. What is the widest tire you can (or have) fit on a Vassago Fisticuff? They say it has clearance for a 29x1.8 but there's always a little more room than they say. I'm looking to put together a bike that is comfortable on the road or cruising some local mtb trails, so that's why I want the widest tire possible. I was looking at the Specialized AWOL but it's almost $2,000 and I'd like to keep my wife happy with me

    I'm using up to a 29x2 on my Origin8 CX900 Monstercross Bike. I find the very large tires to be heavy and to be overkill in almost every situation.
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Why ask here where the buyer may be rare to nil, why not ask them directly? vassagocycles - Contact Us

    only took a moment , I found them I'M Quoting ..
    If you must, you can stuff 1.9 29er tires but mud clearance will suffer.
    then they suggest a 650b conversion. for more width.

    Info wasn't that hard at all, to find ..

    you may want a real 29er ..

    I like to gather real world input from people that don't have any legal reason to tell me or not to tell me something. I know it may sound a little conspiracy theorist but I was told by Specialized that my 29er Stumpjumper could only fit a 2.1 tire and I'm running 2.25 without a problem.

    Thanks for contacting Vassago for me!
