It would not be recommended. The frame would fit 26" tires obviously, but the bottom bracket would be very low.

What Alex wheelset comes on this bike?
I have this set up with my 10 speed Rival shifters and Force crankset. No chainrub and great shifting. Far better than the usual SRAM shifting.
While I wasn't impressed with them as a front tire, run "backwards" on the rear, the have good grip yet will break away early enough that the back tire will still be the first one to go.
On the front , it was quick to wash out. I have read that they can be modified by cutting off the round knobs on the edge, but I never tried it.
I don't really want to run a full quiver of tires for cyclocross so I picked this up as a great "do it all" tire. It isn't the fastest rolling tire, but as an all around combo of speed, grip, and mud clearing ability, it really can't be beat. Don't be fooled by the 30c definition. This tire runs very wide, as wide as some 35c tires.
These 30c tires are more like a 33 or 35 tire. The are definitely considerably wider than the standard 30c tire.
Yes, this is a popular tire for the Stan's tubeless rims.
Best answer to this question would be maybe. The frame likely won't be stiff enough if you are planning on racing crits while throwing down 1000 watts sprints. If you are looking for a frame for general riding or even road races, it will likely be plenty stiff. The ride on this frame is great though. Smooth but not dead.
Getting a Force drivetrain on the same frame ridden by Lotto Beisol in this year's Paris-Roubaix at this price is a pretty great deal. This was a little out of my budget but the review were all positive.
If I could have stretched my budget, this would be what I was riding right now.
The stock derailleur will take a 28T cog but in order to use a 32T you would need to buy and install a Wi-Fli rear derailleur.
If the 30c Mud 2's fit with that much clearance, you should be fine at least up to 35. I run the Mud 2's and they are fit more like a 33c tire. Cyclocross tire sizes are not the most consistent thing by any means. a 30c in one brand could be the same as a 35c in another.
No, the bike is designed specifically for an electronic groupset.
Going from 9mm to 15mm takes all of 5 min with these. It does take a good set of pliers or a vise to remove the 9mm caps to install these though.
Be sure that the gaskets on these are properly set or they will shred under normal riding.
You will need an ANT+ dongle for your Iphone to use this,
To use this with an indoor trainer, you will also need a speed sensor (such as the GSC 10) mounted to the rear wheel. Then you just turn off the GPS sensor on the 500 and it will record your trainer ride.
The bike will come mostly assembled. You will need to put the wheels on, mount the handlebars to the stem, and likely adjust the derailleurs. All you will most likely need is a set of allen wrenches and a Phillips head screwdriver.
They are not compatible as shipped.
You can, however, purchase an M11 freehub to replace the M10 that this ships with to make these wheels work with an 11 spd setup.
Yes, you should have no issues.
I have run SRAM master links with Shimano chains with no issues. I do not believe it is Shimano endorsed however.
Yes, it will work fine.
