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)

Max R. tire clearance on Moto/Windsor/Mercier track frames

Hello all.

I am looking at getting a new beater track frame to replace my aging tarck [sic] conversion.
I was wondering what the maximum sized tire is that you can stuff into the Moto Messenger/Windsor Hour/Mercier KiloTT/SE Lager track frameset. I was hoping to get a 35mm in there with axle all the way in the rear of the track ends. Any thoughts or observations? Photos would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a ton for your time!

I have serious doubts about running 35's on a messenger.

Here is the messenger with 23's-
