Put on some 2.8 inch wide tires on my Jeffsy for the winter.
Tires are Schwalbe Nobby Nic, tubeless.
I'm glad they fit so well.

Should have bought the CF pro, that frame paint scheme is awesome!

I must agree about the mid-phat NN’s! With a 3.0 on the front they handle the winter slop so well. Still waiting on some snow for the true enjoyment.

Thanks for the info.
I wasn't so sure about them for snow riding.
Also waiting for the white funny stuff.

Hi, very happy with my CF Pro 2018, but find it pretty annoying that the plugs to tighten the internal wiring pops out at every single ride. Any ideas how to keep these plugs in place to ensure proper sealing?

Had the same problem on my Capra 2018.
I used a little piece of inner tube wrapped around the cabel to hold it tight.
It won't hold forever, but it works and it's a cheap solution.

Well I did it!

Ordered a new Jeffsy 27.5 CF for my Christmas present! Should arrive by the end of next week!

So stoked! Thank you for all the help with my numberous questions.

Cheers

You can fit 2.8 tyres on a 27.5 frame??
Have you noticed any rub during cornering?

No rub at all.
Today I made a short 20km test ride.
At 23 psi the tire width is 69mm.
Those NN tires roll pretty fast.
Good grip in deep sand.
I really like that plus setup. I think I will keep it that way.

I get slight tire rub on chain stay protector with E13 carbon wheels and 2.5 WT Maxxis. I couldn’t get away with 2.8. Just checked have slight rub on none drive side also.

I have the 2017 version and it is an XL frame.
Had a slight rub on the rubber protector too.
I just cut that part off.

I just purchased E*Thirteen Carbon wheels for mine with Maxxis 2.5WT, I will report back this week if they rub. I have an 18 CF 27 XL, by my calculations it should fit but I suck at math. Lol.
I could see 2.8 being tight.

Seriously? You can fit plus tires in the Jeffsy 27 frame? I was looking for a plus bike before YT dropped their price $600 for Black Friday, so couldn't pass up the Jeffsy AL Comp. It was the least of all compromises for my budget. But if the above is true, I'm going wheel shopping!

If you can get a 27.5+ in there, has anyone tried a 29” wheel? Generally the outside diameters are similar aren’t they?

Last day of the year. Who's riding?
