Default 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 was looking at one of the new Yo's today and I think the widest I'd run would be a 2.6-2.7 depending on the rim width.

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

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