Wider back wheel
I have a specialised hardrock,can i fit a wider back tire or wheel? have 26x2 with schwalbe marathon tours .Now i have fitted the panniers the back wheel looks very thin.
Would have been better in the MTB forum I think!
Yes the Hardrock can take a wider back tyre, up to 2.25" is no problem.
But really, most people with panniers are on road.touring bikes with much thinner tyres (i'm on 28mm on my commuting bike). they'll be fine.
