I'm looking to run some bigger tires on my surly an want to know who's tried the biggest? I'm looking at some 42 irc mythos

but i was also interested if anyone has tried 29" tires at least on the front....

thanks again.

oh yeah www.aebikes.com has the best prices on cross tires! we'll see what they actually have in stock!

I have run WTB Mutanoraptor 700x44's on the Crosscheck. A guy SS board was able to (barely) fit Motoraptor 2.1's after trimming the side knobs.

I ordered some tires from AEBike about a month ago. They weren't in stock, but they got them to me in less than a week. I'd definitely shop there again.

Thanks for the input.

any tips on finding tubes that fit?
And maybe some heavy duty tubes?

thanks
