Do you think that front fork will take a 700x50c tire? Based on picrures there is a plenty of room around 40c tire but it can be misleading..

I would think it could fit a 43mm for sure, maybe 45. A 50 might be pushing it when going 700c, but if you convert it to 650b, you could do a 47 or maybe 50.

Thanks.

Can you also tell me how do you rate geometry of your bike? Agressive or upright? When i look in stack and reach number it looks like this bike sits in the middle ground. Is that correct? And what size do you have? I have 178 cm and i am not sure if m size will be right for me or maybe too big?

The geometry of my TCX? I find that it’s in the middle of a road bike and gravel bike. I ride a ML and I’m 5’11”, 56 in Giant road bikes. I think I’d be a M in the Canyon Grail. The TCX is probably set up a little more racy than most gravel rigs but you can easily have a higher stem angle giving you a more upright position on the bike. I’ve got my stock stem flipped upward to provide comfort and I’ve got no complaints.
