    To all the pitbull users, I am going to be ordering a 2005 pitbull. I want to run a tryall XXL rim (47mm). The question is, will there be a problem with brake clearance since the rim is so wide? I will be using HS33's, although I would rather use avid ultimates. So, will the rim work with the brakes I want to use?

    If the brake mounts have the same spacing as the 1060 pitbull (I don't see why it wouldn't) it will fit. A friend here runs the xxl rim with hs33's on his pitbull, and there is plenty of adjustment.

    Avid ultimates? The pitbulls come with 4 bolt magura brake mounts. You'd need to search for some v adapters, and even then the rim will probably be too wide to work with v's on that frame.
