It was a 2.35. Its a tight fit, especially when its muddy. Eventually I took it off as it removed a lot of paint from my seatstay. I'm now running a Purgatory 2.3 at the back, and will probably put a Butcher 2.3 in there for winter. Those Schwalbe tyres are big.

@willsoffe So if 24 hours after a concussion, you still have a headache, nausea, vomitting, dizziness, and repetitive questioning, you are concussion free solely because it has been 24 hours?

@willsoffe please explain yourself. Most contact sports have explicit rules disallowing continued participation after a concussion. For the reason that @rwondelly posted.

If he was knocked unconscious, or even concussed, he would most definitely not be racing.

Your quick-release lever looks like you've closed it the wrong way around?
