it is possible to do, but you will need to calculate your ratio and chain length to fit your chainstay and bb drop, which can be a pain in the ass and will give you a very limi...

Did I screw up?

depending on the frame geo, that should be about right. i have a 32" inseam and my bianchi fits like a glove. my 57cm pake on the other hand is too big for me. with that geo, i ...
