Default Torker DX 20" Tire Size


UDC says you cannot fit a Luna 20" Trials tire on the DX 20".
But Jagur has shown that a 3" Gazz Will fit on a Torker 24" which is
supposed to be impossible. Does anyone know if the 2.5 x 20" tire will
fit on the DX 20". I'm going to soon buy a low $ Trials and I would
really like the strength of the DX. But more important I want a full
size trials tire (2.5). So the Nimbus will be my choice if truly a 2.5
won't fit the DX.

Even if the Torker frame is wide enough to fit the Luna, it still
wouldn't work. The Luna tire fits on a 19 inch rim like the DX32 or
Monty. The Torker comes with a 20 inch rim.

So perhaps I could use a 19" rim and spoke it to the torker hub?

You could, and it was something I was looking into for myself, the
problem is that the Torker uses 48 spokes and most other rims use 32.

Somebody bring a bunch of those to the US! I think they are only
available through uni.com UK.

Does anyone know if this tire will fit the Torker Frame? And is the
stock rim wide enough for it?

I just put a Maxxis Max Daddy 20x2.25 on my Torker LX and it fits with
about 1/4 inch to spare from the top.
