Will 45mm WTB riddlers on wide 28mm internal width rims fit between the rear chainstays of the Salsa Warbird?
I'm building a set of monstercross wheels for my Salsa Warbird, but before purchasing the new 28mm wide carbon wheels, I wanted to verify that the wheels will fit the Warbird. The Salsa Warbird has 50mm of clearance in the back between the chainstays. According to this Bikerumor article, wheels increase in width .4mm for every 1mm. That brings the wheels to 47mm wide. I also called WTB and they confirmed that the tires would be between 47mm and 49mm. However, in this picture below from an article where the Riddlers are on 20mm wide rims, it looks like a very close fit.
While it will fit according to the math, I wanted to confirm whether this will work in the real world.
