    Look at Surly cross check. I think it can take a 47 tire and 42 with fenders.

    i want the front as low as possible. the forks for 29sr still puts the front too high. looks funny. with a cross fork it drops the bb. im sticking with a cross frame. i may have to have a ti frame built with wider chainstays. hopefully i can find a stock frame that works

    ^a buddy of mine just got one of these. We have a ride this Thursday, I'll ask him how much he likes it.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    The Rat will take 42s. If you feel like writing a short review sometime, please do!
