yes handsome mud butler 45. max tire I could fit was a slick Compass Bon Jon which measured out to 37-38 on a 25 internal diameter rim, but on anything with tread I couldn't go past the 36mm...

I'll give you the best fit rundown I can. The Expat on the Jamis site looks like a 54. My Expat is a 56. In the pics below I set it back up as close to stock as I can (90mm stem and 2cm of spacer...

MTB tubeless conversion

I've run a couple different wheelsets on my Roll. For the last 2 years or so I used a 700c wheelset with a dynohub which has been great for the road, but I was limited to a 2.0" slick due to fork...

2017 Renegade Expat 'HTFU' conversion

I posted my 650b conversion on the thread awhile back, but recently converted back to 700c for commuting/wet weather riding. I miss the larger volume of the 650's but the narrower tire is a lot...

Not sure which model you have, but my 2017 expat had no treatment. I had some water build up from getting caught in the rain and I'm sure some water got in the chainstay holes while washing the bike...

Nice stable! I've been waiting for someone who owns multiple steel models to pop up on the forum. What's your opinion on the ride quality of the 520 steel Expat and the higher end 631 Exploit and...

The frame and fork on the Roll has a ton of clearance. I don't know if your Sirrus or Crosstrail bikes are disc/quick release or not, but if so you can always switch out the wheelsets from one of...

This sounds like a move in the wrong direction for the Renegade. The steel bikes are still claiming 700x42/650x47 on the site. Is the clearance in the rear this the same? For awhile I ran a 35mm...

I'd go ahead and demo every bike in the category you can get your hands on. At this point every bike brand offers one. I'd go with the Jamis for the steel frame alone, but that's just my personal...

What are your thoughts on the Thunder Burt's? They seem to be really popular among 650b bikes. Do you ride mainly gravel or do you like to do some trail/singletrack too? Were you able to clear the...

Man that complete bike looks awesome, too bad they didn't offer this in 2017. I'd love to hear a ride report on the new frame after you've gotten in some saddle time on the new bike. I'm no expert...

Wow that's a really nice looking bike. I bet the color looks even better in real life. I see you got one of the new White Industries headsets, and I'm guessing the hubs are WI CLDs. What country...

That should be a nice build once everything comes together, the deep red color on the Cotic looks great (that's the color they should've made the 2018 Exploit except with the matte metallic finish...

Renegade Expat 650B Conversion

I was hoping to see more pictures of people's setups on this thread so I'll go ahead and post mine. I just recently installed the axle conversion kits on my American Classic Wide Lightning's to...

yeah I hear what your saying. I wish there was some sort of bead comparison chart for tires where you could look at the differences in design between brands like you can with rims. It has to be...

One last thing, if you want the chilliest, most laid back ride experience possible, I definitely recommend getting the step through model. If you ever mount a rear rack with a basket or child seat,...

Although after looking again, I see there is also a Sport EQ that has rim brakes and a rear rack. I assume you were talking about the regular sport with no racks and mechanical disc brakes. Either...

If you're just going to do bike path rides and that sort of thing I'd just go with the Sport. I don't know why you'd need hydraulic disc brakes on a bike like the Roll, and it's not like any of the...

I almost forgot to mention I've also run a Schwalbe Marathon Supreme 28 x 2.0 with tubes on the AC Race wheelset with no issues as well.

One more American Classic Race blow off

One more here with a blow off using a 40mm G One Allround TLE's on an American Classic Race wheelset. It happened on the rear tire, running 40 psi. Thankfully the blow off didn't happen during the...

Man I really like the charcoal/black reflective paint job on the 2017 City model. It would look al lot cooler on a step through though ;). Lots of good rack and fender options starting to pop up...

Specialized Roll Low Entry

Another great thing about the Roll is the versatility of the frame. Even though the bike comes with 650x2.3 tires, they measure out to a 28" diameter, which is roughly the same size as a 700c hybrid...
