I have a 2016 Great Divide with the previous generation fork which easily accomodates a (measured) 30mm tire. This is with Cane Creek eebrakes. I think 32’s on my bike would probably be too close.

I’ve seen the current No22 rim brake fork used by other builders- 32’s were easily cleared but again, with the eebrakes.

Hi All -

Sorry for the late reply here. Indeed, we've designed our forks to get as large a tire as a contemporary caliper will allow.

We always list our clearance as measured (what does your caliper say when the tire is mounted and inflated) given the vast number of rim/tire combinations.

On the subject of rim models, we do have two Great Divide rim brake completes in size 52 & 54 available at a significant discount on the clearance section of our site if anyone's interested. Happy to toss-in a set of Silca Ti cages finished to match to any Paceliners.
