I'm a little dissapointed that the 650 x 48mm gravel kings, which measure out to 50mm (on my 22mm inner width rim), only leave ~2mm of clearance on each side. I know the max tire clearance is 47mm, but even at 47mm it would only leave 3-4mm of clearance on each side which is well below what I thought manufacturers use for determining max tire size (i thought they used 6mm). FYI I have 2019 Escapade frameset.
very interesting to hear that - I also plan in near future to test exactly the same setup on my Jamis Renegade Exploit bike. But I also tested a 700x50c Gravel Kings on my bike - it was a very tight fit but I managed to do that! To find out more and see the pictures please visit my website
