Tire size 08 Norco Fluid/Fox Vanilla Fork

Glad she likes the new tires.

I found that more aggressive tires and wider bars made the Fluid much more competent going downhill without noticeably impacting it's ability to go back up. The 2.1 kenda small block 8's that came with the 08 Fluids didn't seem to live up the the bike's capabilities.

Tire size 08 Norco Fluid/Fox Vanilla Fork

Here are a few pics I took of my 08 Fluid 2.0 with an almost new 2.35 Nevegal mounted in the rear. Clearance is tightest at the chainstay but there is still quite a bit of room.

Hope this helps.

I have an 08 Fluid and have found that the frame will easily fit a 2.35 tire in the rear. I've run 2.35 maxis highrollers and kenda nevegals with no clearance issues.

In the front I immagine that she would be fine running a 2.35 tire as well.
