It has been a while since I posted here, but I now have a question that I would really appreciate feedback about.
I just acquired a Triton triple frame that is ideal for use with the Surly Large Marge rim.
What is the smallest tire that can be used with the Large Marge if I want to use something a bit more modest than the 4" Endomorph?
I am aware that many have suggested the Nokian Gazzalodi 26 x 3" but as far as I am aware that is no longer available.
Will a Schwalbe Big Apple 26 x 2.35" be too small for this rim? I would like to use a slick once in a while for road riding.
I note that Surly’s own description of the rim on their web site says something about needing to use a 2.3 or smaller when running the rim on a Pugsley with V brakes or cantilevers, for what it is worth.
Arrow/Duro 26 x 3.0" handles nicely on road with a good curved tread profile - the sides are wide enough to keep the rim from getting dinged and the arrow does great off road. . . . . That said, the Surly Larry is now out and getting pretty good reviews by bikers. Anyone tried one on a Large Marge rim yet??
