    Ive heard some people have had problems fitting larger tires like a 2.5 on the Echo Urban. Can anyone tell me what tires do or do not fit. Should I just go for a 2.3? I would rather not trim the nobs off of a new tire.

    I've used an El Gato, Panaracer FireDH 2.3, and Maxxis Hansventure 2.35

    Nothing bigger will fit really. I had gotten a Panaracer FireFR 2.4 to try, no way it was gonna fit.

    Go for 2.3.. nothin bigger.

    that's Nick Baxter of canberratrials.com, near the waterfall in civic on a sunny canberra day. You can almost imagine the patrons of the bella vista restaurant over to the left, enjoying the trials show. ahhh...

    the australian tax office shopfront is just over his right shoulder, with the blinds drawn behind the black 4wd.

    And that's Craig Pearce's megamo sitting idly on the grass.

    but I can't tell you anything about the frame, It's been replaced now, I imagine it would have been cracking for a while. Nick pushes the limits though, a "normal" rider shouldn't worry too much.
