Anyone know the biggest tire Pitchfork XLT-Ts can fit? I can't justify buying new forks just to get a bigger front tire.

I don't know how big of a front tire you're looking to get but, honestly, anything above 2.25" is pretty pointless.

im lacing a profile ss to a hoffman rim and it says i need 185.7 mm    and 186.2 mm would i be right in thinking that 186mm would be fine and not  have the tops of the spoke come trough the rim?

I just unlaced a rim then laced it back up. The outbound spokes on the drive side are ~7mm above the inbound which are snug. What the hell did I do wrong.

I've been riding a New Wave since 2008, still going strong. I ride a bit of flat on it too

BB is 11.75" but the rear end length is 13.6", which at the time is what most manufacturers meant back then by "13.75"

3/8ths axle w.o 14mm adaptors in the rear.
that would lower my bb by fractions of an inch and be slightly better in a bowl and on trails, yes?
