    Your Lobster looks like the result of Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee mating and out popped a bike. Strong, nimble and will round house kick other bikes when passing while wearing action jeans. Your bike makes me want a lobster.

    Awesome- what size tires and model are you running?
    How big of a tire will it take?

    On those race wheels are Clement PDX in 33. I was just checking out the max tire it will take. For trail riding this summer I'm planning on a 38 clincher (in a tubeless setup) up front and a 35 in the back. Shouldn't be a problem.

    What is geo like on that bike?

    I don't think a 40 would fit the rear. Maybe a 38 but I'm playing it safe with a 35. That's an Enve fork so for sure a 40 would fit up front. Paul could build to accomodate a 40 out back if you wanted. I asked him for a race bike first and foremost and he said a 35 would fit with no problems. Attached is a drawing with the numbers.

    Here is a Bontrager CX0 in size 38mm mounted on a HED C2 in a tubeless setup. It measures 38.54mm.
