Hi guys. I ride a Lemond Poprad. Does anyone know the widest tire which can fit on a standard 700cx622 road rim? What is widest rim/tire that this bike can accommodate? Are 29 inch MTB wheels/tires compatible with this bike?
Thanks, evan

I've got a 42 on the front (Ritchey Z.E.D.) and a 38 on the rear (Ritchey Mount Cross) with the stock wheels. I don't think you'll be able to put anything wider on the back.

The limit on size will most likely be the frame, not the rim. Look at your current tires and see what type of clearance you have at the rear stays.
