    Can it be done?

    What about the Monark 2?

    I just built a Felt Canvas and have the 2" x 24" rims and the thick Bricks

    Tried one in my Felt one time, it'll fit but not much room IIRC less than 1/4" either side and rim width will affect things.

    EDIT: found a pic

    I understand the Monark 2 is almost 15mm wider then the Abraham.

    Also does the 2" rim help or hurt me here?

    Hard to say on the rim, sometimes it helps straighten out the sidewall instead of ballooning out like on mtb tires, but I've never tried with this tire. These rims are Araya x7s or similar less than 40mm for sure, so it would be a big jump.
