Velocity B43 Tire Size Help
I'm finishing up my first freestyle bike and I'm going to run a set of B43's I have off of one of my commuter setups until I save up for a beefy 29 or 26 (still undecided) wheelset
I was just curious what is the largest or most functional tire size I could get away with on these? I've done a bit of research and read people saying 700x35c all the way up to 29x2.1 (which I'm kind of skeptical about..) My frame can clear up to a 700x50c tire.

We (Velocity USA) generally recommend a max of a 32c tire, but given variances in tire widths from tire manufacturer to tire manufacturer you're probably fine with a 35c. I know people have successfully run wider, but getting up in the 40+ range makes me a little nervous as your tire is a bit more likely to roll off.

Im running 700x35c Resist Nomads on my B43s they work perfectly.

Thank for the replies guys! I think I will go with 700x35c then!
