  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    It looks like the largest tires out there are 24x3's. My current rims/tires are 26". Do the larger width of the 24's make them fit the height in a 26" frame? How much width clearance do they need?

    Thanks

    I do know the 24x3's are the same height as regular cruiser 26x2.125's, and obviously they're wider as well, but I'm not sure how much, on that count.

    I have 24x3's on the back, and 26x2.125's on the front of my bike...

    There are also 26x3 tires out there. I had a pair of 26x3.45 tires on my Rust-DX build. I posted pics of it in the thread with your patina question. I didn't have to modify my frame, but fenders were out of the question.
