Default Max Tire width for a Yo?

I am looking to put some slick urban tires on my Yo for the kind of riding I do nowadays... anyone have any idea how much width is too much for a Yo?

Too much? Nothing

The Yo was designed with extreme wide tyres in mind. It was even one of the special features of the Yo design.

Thats what I remember... but extremely wide tires back THEN are not extremely wide tires now... I remember my panaracer smokes were like 1.9 or something?

I ordered some 2.5 wide maxxis hookworms and some 2.2 wide maxxis holy rollers.

I got my drive train on the repainted Yo yesterday
Next week I finish it off.

Hey kevin881,

Let us know how the Hookworm 2.5" tires work on the Yo, I really love those tires and would want to try them on my Ti Fat Chance as I only ride that bike on pavement these days...

Thanks,

Michael-NYC
