FWIW, I now run 37C WTB Riddlers for Gravel on this bike. Plenty of clearance. You could EASILY squeeze 38mm, maybe even 40mm here

Nope not yet. I haven't really been running my 700x35 Clement USH lately, I have another wheel set with 700x28 Gatorskins that I have been mostly using. I don't have a lot of trails around me here in downtown Milwaukee that require the bigger tires

Nice bike. I've been debating one of these --- any idea on the actual tire clearance? Traitor specifies 35c but I seem to see wider tires on it. Would love to run 38+ Paselas or G1 gravels....

Thanks! It's been a good bike so far. If you can snag one of the completes or frame sets on sale (which they currently are), you can get a hell of a deal.

I have 35mm USH on there, but there is plenty of clearance for me. I know I could get a 38mm there comfortably. In fact when these wear out thats what I will be doing

I've also got a Ruben, 32c Gatorskins on the rear with full fenders. But I imagine a 38c would fit just fine without fenders. There's definitely clearance for it.
