Nice update to one of the best Nature Boys on this site. I'm thinking of going the other way with mine and setting it up for dirt.

Thanks man! Today is definitely the last day the fender/touring tires will be on this bike. Throwing some 43c gravel tires back on it because it's so much more fun off pavement!

Hey, sorry for the late reply. Finally got around to swapping tires as I've been too busy enjoying my other bikes. Definitely made the right move swapping back to bigger rubber though. Just got back from a cruise this morning. There is about 4mm or clearance between the chainstays and tire.

Glad to see this badassery updated.

Heavy inspo for mine when I was looking to build one out and I still love it.

Thanks! Yours is definitely put together nicely. I just can't leave the fenders on mine though. This bike makes a great commuter, but an even finer gravel grinder!

I'm trying to build something similar with the same crank arms. Is that a safe bet with the nature boy frame? I will be using dt 240s which can use a cog instead of a freewheel like white industries.

I would suggest getting a shorter bottom bracket spindle then, like what is recommended for the cranks (I think for the double, it's 110mm JIS). On the dt250 hub, you'll be able to move the cogs around to achieve straight chainline. The Paul hubs I am using are designed for single speed mountain use, so it limited me to a 52mm chainline, resulting in the need for a longer bottom bracket spindle.

What spindle length is your bottom bracket?

Posted about 3 years ago

m_sobie

m_sobie says:

It's 122mm long in order to achieve a 52mm chainline.

Do you feel cramped at all? Im about the same height and am building a macho man disc. All city's geometry measurements are a bit strange. I hate the "Effective Toptube" measurements.

I just noticed that you ride a 60cm in most of your other bikes.

I'm mostly legs with a shorter torso. With a setback seatpost and 130mm stem with a riser, it feels spot on. I typically like a slightly smaller frame for agility, so I went with a 58cm. I haven't ridden it with drop bars yet, but if I did I'd swap out the stem for a 110mm. If I were planning on primarily running drop bars and had a bit more torso length, I'd have went with the 61cm for a taller head tube.

FWIW I'm 6'4" and my 61cm nature boy feels perfect. Effective top tube is nothing to hate. It measures a horizontal line, parallel to the
ground, from the center of the top of the head tube to the intersection with the seat tube or seat post. An effective top tube measurement is the same as the actual top tube measurement on a bike with a perfectly level top tube. Since the nature boy has a sloping top tube, the actual top tube measurement is completely useless, and the effective top tube measurement is key.

^Definitely have to agree there. Along with the reach and stack, ETT was one of the more important measurements I considered for fit.
