Tire Size

Chuck Krease /

Hello everyone,

I own a Motobecane Cady and I'm trying to source out new tires. Currently the tire size on the bike are 2-16, does this mean 2" x 16" and can I deviate from the 2" dimension? I'm wanting to purchase 16" x 2.25".


Re: Tire Size

The tire width will depend on what can fit in your swing arm. 2.25 should be fine. You can probably get at least a 2.5 in there. Take a measurement while your old tire is on. See where it goes into the swing arm at the front. Make the measurement there. That is the skinniest part and where the tire has to clear.
