Torker LX Tire Options

I thought it would be a good idea to list some of the larger tires that
people have gotten to fit onto an LX since threads on the subject seem
to be scattered.  I bought a 26 x 2.35 Kenda Nevegal today that has
about 3-4mm of clearance from the top of the frame.

I've seen a pic w/ a 2.6" Kenda Kinetics on the 24, it -just barely-
fit.  Because of frame tolerances, it may not fit on all LX's.

Woah, that's cool. I'll have to think of a setup like that if I ever
want a 26" XC setup.

The frame is plenty wide for at least a 2.6, however, the frame is not
tall enough for a lot of tires. Some of us have gained about a quarter
inch by hammering in the underside of the crown.

Torker LX Tire Options

I tried a  Resolution 26x2.10  and wasn't very happy with it.  The tread
sang a little bit each revolution as it rubbed the crown.

This is w/ the 26" LX frame, right?

Your rim may need to be trued.  It could be that the tire isn't
perfectly round or isn't mounted exactly even on the rim.

Do you have a photo?  By the pic of the LX on UDC, I'd think there'd be
plenty of space for a 2.1" on the 26.

Yeah.... Any lx I've seen should fit most 2.3's. Higher rounded profile
tires may require slight "modification" to the crown. I hammered it out
for another 1/4 inch or so of clearance. I ran tioga 2.3 downhill comp
tires and 2.35 maxxis swamp things (for mud)w/ out a problem.
