Really nice looking g bit of kit. I've been looking at the frame only. It definitely says only 4" tyres but I'm currently running 4.6 so it's interesting to see your spec.

Selkirk,

I'm running race face cranks & bb with a Superstar components Raptor 32t Oval chain ring up front.

On the back I've a Sunrace MS3 10 speed cassette (11-42)

There was a wee bit of rub on the tyre in the highest gear under pressure on steep singletrack climbs, my mate fixed this by retrue'ing my back wheel a touch to the left.

ahh this is good to know, I'm looking at fitting some 4.3 Surly Ednas on my commando when I finish the build. Do you think I would get rub running a 1x12 Sram 32t with a Sunrace CSMZ9 cassette?

Might to tough to tell, but I figured I'd ask! Thanks for getting back to me so quick

Honestly mate I'm not sure. My mate built my bike up as one of the first jobs in his new bike workshop. He told me what to buy then I let him get on with it. I'll check with him, see what he reckons.

Retrueing the wheel wasn't possible with 4.8" tires. So I ended up removing two sprockets from the cassette. There's no chain rubbing and the chainline is perfect.

spoke to my bike mech mate, he's a touch dubious about fitting the 1x12 on the 4.3 tyres, he certainly wouldn't want to try it.

Beautiful looking bike - I just ordered one of these frames! How's the tire clearance with the JJ's? These were advertised as "up to 4.0 tires" but seeing some bigger tires is encouraging!

Thank you! The tire clearance is quite tight (only ~ 5 mm between chain- and seatstays). I also had to modify the cassette from 11- to 9-speed to prevent the chain rubbing the tire.
