Is the rear triangle wider on the Motobecane Jury than standard?

Really interested the Jury since I have become a wide tire fan-I would like to run 700x35-40 someday

I know that there is plenty of print info on the front fork having huge clearance, but what about the rear triangle? Is it wider side-to-side than a KiloTT? Is there more clearance on the seat tube also?

Any Jury owners who can clear up my puzzlement? Thanks

The back triangle is the same, maybe even a bit more clearance, than the front.

So let me get this straight. There's enough room for Dave to fly a 747 through there, and I need to go wash my eyes.

Tons of room on the rear
42c not an issue
45c maybe
48c maybe
but lots of room

Technically Dave was riding on the 747 while someone else flew it. This has nothing to do with clearances but I'd like to give credit where credit is due since upon close inspection I believe this to be a real, undoctored photo of an actual event.

Not to make the thread all but that dude in the second pic _almost_ looks like a chick.

And yes, the Jury has a wider rear triangle too.

Ryan, you're almost right about the pic. It is, in fact, a genuine picture of an actual event and yes, I am riding the 747 but I am also piloting it - with my mind!

Who actually has a Jury here? Is the spacing wider in the back?

After performing a very quick (and easy) Google image search, I found this:



That looks like a pretty wide fender so I would say yes, the spacing is in fact wider in the rear as well.

Why don't you send Jeff at Bike Island an e-mail and ask him?
