Will Heresy or S&M forks fit 2.30 tires?
« on: May 26, 2018, 05:09:45 PM »



I'm looking at Heresy 0/15 and S&M Fast pitch forks,but I want to make sure they are compatible with 2.30 size tires.
Wanted to give bigger tires a chance and forgot my Odyssey flat fork was designed to accept smaller tire sizes. Any help is appreciated.


Thanks

I don't have anything over 2.1" (my 24" cruiser tires) so am not 100% sure. However, when I line up my fast pitch on the cruiser tire there is a little bit of room left. I'd say it might fit 2.3" but would probably be pretty tight.
I'd definitely wait to hear what others have to say before running out to buy fast pitch forks...

Thanks for the info! I've reached out to a company and am waiting to hear if they will fit. It's that one measurement no one covers in parts details.

I agree 100%, I think that it is very needed that the manufacturer will say which tire can fit a fork.

No brakes. I'm really starting to think that the tires won't work for any flat oriented forks. Also funny thing, I bought these tires from a local bike shop and one of the tires is 2.30 and the other is 2.40. I can't believe i didn't catch that.  :P

I was before I switched back to zero offset.  The Utopia forks are awesome.
