The Pake and Soma rush both have 28mm clearance. I imagine the Pista is right in the range. On the Surly sight it says you can get 38mm with room for fenders, so I'd guess you could probably squeeze a little bigger in there, meaning 40mm is probably a reasonable estimate.
I'm not too familiar with the bikes that sivat mentioned, but since theyre sold as complete frames, and I'm preferably looking for frame/fork, I'll probably be focusing my search on the frames I've listed.
I would expect the iro rob roy to have decent clearance, since its cyclocross. I have no idea about the jamie roy, but id think if that had good clearance, the mark v would be similar/same.
Anyway, I emailed IRO about this, and I'm gonna carry around a ruler, so the next Mark V I see I'll measure.
In general what do people think about the mark v instead of the steamroller (I know this has been asked/answered plenty). For some reason I find myself wanting the IRO to not have much clearance, so I'm forced to go with the steamroller. But the IRO is right at the price I want.
