Our NXs call for a 90/100-19 fronts. One of us wrote on ~ page 56 "Front 100/90-19, way bigger than TW39 but it fit under the fork brace. "

I used a "small and narrow" 70/100-19 knobby for two dual sport events, one very rocky day in Reading PA and one very sandy one in NJ. It did very well despite my 215 lbs.
I belive there will come more options to the 19", as more new bikes come with this. I use Continental ContiTrailAttack 110/80 R19 as summertyre. It fits nice, with a fingers distance:
