I already told them you said 700x35 but I guess they want to confirm. I will pass along the frontal picture, frame size, and tire size info to Jamis if you post them. I can't send you a private message because I'm under 10 posts.
Tires are 700c x 35 Schwalbe G One. Bike size is 48cm. In the smaller 44 and 48 sizes, these bikes come with 650b wheels stock for the 2018 models. This probably explains the reduced vertical clearance in the fork. If you could ask them if the fork on the 44 and 48 have less clearance, I would appreciate it. To reiterate, these wheels and tires in the picture were removed from a 2016 48cm Expat. It had fenders front and rear with plenty of clearance. Same exact wheels and tires do fit with a fender on a 2018 48cm Escapade on the rear, but front tire barely clears the top of the fork WITHOUT the fender.
