You'll be able to clear the 38mm SK in the front, but probably not the rear. I cleared a set of Rene Herse (Compass) Bon Jon's on my Expat on a set of American Classic Race wheels that measured 38mm...

yes handsome mud butler 45. max tire I could fit was a slick Compass Bon Jon which measured out to 37-38 on a 25 internal diameter rim, but on anything with tread I couldn't go past the 36mm...

I'll give you the best fit rundown I can. The Expat on the Jamis site looks like a 54. My Expat is a 56. In the pics below I set it back up as close to stock as I can (90mm stem and 2cm of spacer...

2017 Renegade Expat 'HTFU' conversion

I posted my 650b conversion on the thread awhile back, but recently converted back to 700c for commuting/wet weather riding. I miss the larger volume of the 650's but the narrower tire is a lot...

Not sure which model you have, but my 2017 expat had no treatment. I had some water build up from getting caught in the rain and I'm sure some water got in the chainstay holes while washing the bike...

Nice stable! I've been waiting for someone who owns multiple steel models to pop up on the forum. What's your opinion on the ride quality of the 520 steel Expat and the higher end 631 Exploit and...

This sounds like a move in the wrong direction for the Renegade. The steel bikes are still claiming 700x42/650x47 on the site. Is the clearance in the rear this the same? For awhile I ran a 35mm...

I'd go ahead and demo every bike in the category you can get your hands on. At this point every bike brand offers one. I'd go with the Jamis for the steel frame alone, but that's just my personal...

What are your thoughts on the Thunder Burt's? They seem to be really popular among 650b bikes. Do you ride mainly gravel or do you like to do some trail/singletrack too? Were you able to clear the...

Man that complete bike looks awesome, too bad they didn't offer this in 2017. I'd love to hear a ride report on the new frame after you've gotten in some saddle time on the new bike. I'm no expert...

Wow that's a really nice looking bike. I bet the color looks even better in real life. I see you got one of the new White Industries headsets, and I'm guessing the hubs are WI CLDs. What country...

That should be a nice build once everything comes together, the deep red color on the Cotic looks great (that's the color they should've made the 2018 Exploit except with the matte metallic finish...

I was hoping to see more pictures of people's setups on this thread so I'll go ahead and post mine. I just recently installed the axle conversion kits on my American Classic Wide Lightning's to...
