    Yeah, I read a lot of leather saddles have a very limited amount of rearward rail adjustment. Brook's in particular. Selle Anatomica addressed it with really long rails. I think they're oogily,...

    I could be wrong, but the consequent amount of trail when wheel diameter is factored in might have something do with it.

    Am I right or am I wrong? Anyone?

    You probably can't quite make sense of it because I'm not always good at illustrating verbally. I am still trying to put all this together in my head. Also, I'm certainly not a frame builder, but I'm...

    Wow! Thank you very much. I'll have to read over that a couple more times and think about what you just said. But, after a brief reading, there certainly is more in designing than I'd realized. But,...

    Okay. I understand what you're saying. I'd read an article by Grant Peterson on seat tube angle and he pretty much said the same. Surly bikes....like the Cross Check....is a good example. Peterson's...

    Well, yeah. But, he said small frames are always a compromise and pay no attention to them....etc. So, I wondered if he might clarify his thoughts on that for me. I suppose I could have said just...

    What would you call a small frame? I'm looking at something....most likely...in the 53cm/54cm range for myself.

    I vote you go for the 12-30 and move to a 36t ring. A somewhat finer spread in the rear with the same low and same high as with the 39x13-32.
