Change of direction...

Now with 2.10" Maxxis Grifter tires, 180mm front rotor and inverted riser bar...

















These 2.10" Grifters were lightly used from another bike so I wanted to go through them first before installing a new pair of these on hand, the 2.30" size version.

It appears you will find the stem angle problematic for mounting bags on the block. Perhaps a small bag, maybe.

2.30" meat


Swallow Husky 20 x 2.30"










45T chainring now
.
Tire profile: ~5.5cm
​​​.

20-85 gear-inches
45T x 11-46T

Clearance at the rear of the frame is exhausted. I wouldn't go any bigger there. At the fork, there's still room for 2.4".

This bike is indeed stunning. I like the black/gold combination so much the only thing I would do if it were mine would be to remove the decals from the rims.

The Grifters in 2.3 look tempting.

Yeah, those Husky jobs ain't dainty and slim, that's for sure. I wasn't expecting them to be so big before pumping them up. Measured from sidewall to sidewall, they are an honest 2.3" unlike many other tires that cheat in that regard. I don't have a scale to weigh them, but they are not light. I've now swapped tires three times so I think I'm gonna leave them as the initial stock tires on this build.
