Hey, do you still have this? I'm wondering if these frames would clear a 40mm or 42mm tyre in the rear, like WTB Nano

I recall the chainstay being kinda tight and my 35's being close to maxing out. I didn't try anything bigger than that. Hope that helps at all.

Thanks, it's a great ride. Would be great for city riding and commuting. Since I don't race cross that's mostly what it's used for, tho it's not used nearly enough.

Nice bike! I really like the tire clearance. My bikes are limited to 28c, which isn't so good for gravel roads. BTW, you could change the rear brake pads other way round. It should improve the braking performance.

Thanks man! This gets a lot more road time than my "light" road bike for just that reason. Yes, I've turned the pads around since the pics. Dunno what I was thinking.

how do you like those tires?

Really great so far. Smooth tread, fast-rolling. And the price is right! I ride them between 60-80psi.

Looks great. Why the brake switch? Avids are good stuff.

Compatibility. The frame was apparently made with shimano systems in mind and as such, does not support certain others (avid,trp..) without a messy mod. And so, I cannot get the pads to contact the rim properly. Otherwise the Avids would stay for sure. The front won't change, just the rear.
