Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Windsor Hour - Allowable Tire Width

Has anyone fooled around with fat tires on their Windsor Hour or Fuji Track? 28? 32? 35? Or is tight for a 23 only?

I don't have a Windsor/Fuji, but I bet you can fit bigger tires on there than you think you can.
I was fooling around the other day, and I was able to fit my 27" x 1 1/8 wheels on my Bareknuckle frame and fork and there was still good clearance in front and back. I've heard you can only use 700c x 23 with the Bareknuckle.

I'm wondering the same thing. I just got one and I have extra 28c Gatorskins that I'm thinking about putting on. It looks like 25's will fit, but probably not 28's. I'll let you know if I decide to try it.

I've got a Windsor 'the hour' for commuting/grocery getting/bar hooping and I must say there isn't ALOT of clearance. depending on where your rear axle is in the rear drop outs, you may get a bit more clearance.
