    I can't say for sure, but on my Straggler with Ailerons (32h 2x) the TRP's don't rub, but there's not a ton of clearance. I think a lot of it will come down to the hub flange. I used our ATB disc...

    Just chiming in to say that we *don't* recommend cloth or any thicker tape on the A23. Two layers of Velotape or equivalent (Stan's) will make tire mounting much easier, and it will stay put.

    Honestly the similarities, in my eyes, stop at the fact they are both steel bikes. Apples and oranges in my book. The Marin can be made to do much of what the Clem can do, but it will never do it as...

    Of our rims, the Aileron is my favorite to build. I think you'll really like how they build, and even more, how they ride.
