212 guys and tires

It might be easier to find motorcycle tires that fit a 24” bicycle rim so I’m considering switching to 24” rims
MC and bicycle wheels are two different animals altogether. A 24" MC wheel will be like a 18" rim somewhere in there. Reference pics, 26" bicycle, 17" motorcycle.

If you are building your own wheels you can just lace a motorcycle rim onto the hub of your choice. Then you wouldn't have to play around with finding the right size tires.
Yeah I looked at that too but motorcycle rims are wider than bicycle rims so I need to consider frame clearance. I’ll have to go home and measure my frame distance and see what I come up with. But I’m thinking about just running the CST knobbies on 26” rims. Or 24” rims.
