Nimbus Nightfox with 26"

Does anyone knows if a Nightfox could use a Oregon 26" wheel setup? Could it run a 4" fat tire?

I have considered it but haven't done it. I figured you could go up to 3.7" wide without issues.

Thank you Saskatchewanian... so the Nightfox should be my ultimate uni: no knee bashing issue, can use semi-fat, can run tall wheel and could be used also by children

Does anyone know why the Nightfox, which is supposed to be for smaller riders, is spaced 127mm?

That's Nimbus' standard 36er spacing. Especially handy when using an inboard disk brake.
