New Yo rigid fork tire clearance?

Has anyone tried running a 27.5 x 2.6, 2.8, or 3.0 inch tire on a new Yo rigid fork?

Just wondering what kind of clearance the fork has.

Thanks

I'm betting the largest you can run is around 2.5" or under. When I ordered a Yo Eddy 2.2 back in April they said I can't get the rigid fork with it, and I assume it's because it won't fit + sized tires. I ended up switching my order to a 2.1 normal 27.5 to get through rigid but it'll be a couple months until I have it so I'm sure someone else can chime in before then. Hopefully anyway, it seems pretty dead on the forum lately!

Thanks for replying, I have a 2.1 on order too, just thinking ahead on tires.

The 2.2 uses boost spacing, maybe that's why no rigid fork.

I've got one of the kickstarter bikes with a rigid fork. I ran it with 2.4 continental tyres and clearance was fine. It's now got 2.2's on it for the summer

Just an FYI. Im building my 2.1 with rigid fork you will need an inset7 headset with devolution fork race. The fork steerer is straight 1-1/8" frame is designed for tapered

Thanks for the tire info & especially the heads up on the headset, figured they would go with a tapered steerer.
