Pelizzoli "tight clearances"

(closed)
This is an option for the Pelizzoli Leggenda frame, but I'm not exactly sure what this means for the frame (obviously tighter clearances, but what's standard and how much less clearance is it with this option?). If anyone could help me out that would be great. I am still awaiting a response from Pelizzoli.

I wouldn't opt for tight clearance. It might look cool, but it's not logical in terms geometry. Check out my old Leggenda. It's tight af and it's not even what they consider "tight clearances."

Thanks for the clear and fast reply. I guess I won't be getting it. By the way, yours looks real nice!

No problem. I was in your shoes when I got mine, but Marco talked me out of it. I've ridden many a track bike and am no stranger to toe overlap, but the Leggenda was something else. Tight clearance like that just isn't practical for any kind of riding. It would be like a piece of paper between the downtube and a 23c tire.
