Does anyone know if this will fit 32mm tires or the max 28mm similar to other Vamoots?

I think the limiting factor on this bike would be the Reynolds fork.

no 32 with Reynolds fork, maybe not even 28.

Agreed re the Reynolds fork.
And given the brake bridge placement on that frame you sre also looking at a max of 28 in the rear as well.

Yes, nice deal there. Hope the seller considers spending a little of the proceeds on a fit consultation. :)

I test rode it today - was considering buying it. 28mm tires are already on there and fit fine. The fork will not fit anything more than that. The rear has 2-3mm on either side. That said, the tires were mounted to old school Open Pro’s so on wider rims the clearance would be less. For those reasons, I passed on it. Otherwise it’s a pretty cool bike!

Great deal on a pretty sweet bike! 28s should be sufficient for the road IMHO. If it were a 54cm I'd be looking for a facilitator even though I'm trying to downsize a bit!

Surprised nobody here has taken this home!

I love this bike. So classic. Amazing it is going for so cheap because it doesnt have disc brakes and cannot take monster tires.

Is that a ti rack, too? I want the rack!

I really want to buy it, fly to Oakland and ride it south.
