looking to get a second set of wheels for trails and would like to get some fat tires to handle the roots, etc.

42 would be great but could live with a 40 or maybe a 38

The chain stay looks like it can handle at least a 43 as measured with a caliper. brakes are narrower at about 39, but as long as the tires are not fully inflated, a wider tire should push through without too much trouble.

Does anyone have any experience with the maximum tire clearance for the Volpe?

I ran a 42 Speedmax (closer to a 40 or 38) with the wheel near the front of the dropouts (as a singlespeed) and it was pretty tight. A little farther back and you would gain some room but a 38 or so is as big as I would go if you want mud clearance. The fork can fit whatever you want. I've run a 45 firecross which is pretty big especially with those knobs.
