Winter tire width & fender on Jamis Coda?

OK I know its the first day of summer but this young man's thoughts turn to what snow tires to mount on a Jamis Coda which I just bought on ebay to be my winter/backup commuter bike.

It doesn't snow much in South Jersey/Philly so I am considering a 32mm Nokian A10 or a 35 mm Schwalbe Marathon Winter. The Coda can run up to 35 mm wide tires. Does anyone have experience as to whether 35 mm studded snow tires and a 45mm fender will fit on a Coda?

Thanks!

Brand of bike you have, tells Me nothing ,

Do you want to wait until someone who bought your same bike to answer?

take a seat..





Id guess you need clearance over the tire .under the mudguard for snow?

a possible kludge.. cut the mudguard where it will be too close ..

and continue from that cut, with a bracket spanning the interruption..


I have my front mudguard mounted on either side of my fork crown,
so underside of the crown is the low point..
