Chainstays for a Cyclocross bike.
What ovalized chainstay tube would any of you framebuilders suggest for a lugged frame? I'd like a stiff chainstay, weight is not a concern, tire clearance is. I would like 700x35 clearance.
Reynolds offers the 725 FX2521 chainstay tube:17 x 30 oval, 0.9/0.6 wall thickness, 430 length.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
