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)

I'm gonna try "Fatties" on my steamroller

Sury claims Steamrollers can fit up to a 38 mm tire. I want to try and squeeze a 37 mm in there but I'm not sure if this will be too wide for my Mavic MA3's. Anyone with any expericience with this? The tire I'm considering is the Twisterpro. Performance has a pretty good price for it, though they seem to only have 37's in stock. I tried posting in Road Cycling but no one knows. Thanks for your help!

never tried it myself. the mavic website only quotes the ma3 up to 28mm.

however they also make road rims for tyres from 28-38mm:

You'll be fine, I've run a 44mm WTB Mutanoraptor on an MA3 on my Surly Crosscheck with no problem and I regularly run a 35mm Avocet Cross touring tire on the MA3.
