So, I love my frame. I got it for free, as it was cracked, and my friend replaced the chainstays and added a disc mount. It's an older Black Sheep steel frame, and about the biggest tire I can fit in there is a 2.1 or so. I'm really looking for a hardtail that I can fit like a 2.5 inch tire in, disc for sure. I've been looking at the Surly Instigator, but it's really overbuilt for what I want to do with it. My old singlespeed frame had the tire clearance, but it was a singlespeed, and wasn't set up for the shifty bits.
Anybody got recommendations?
