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.
Jamis responded: "Yeah, the smaller frames have different limits. 44/48CM limits are 650x47 tire and a 700x25c."
