Agreed. My early-80s version won't take bigger than a 23mm under the rear brake bridge. I dunno why the original owner specced such a tight clearance there - I mean, the head tube angle is pretty slack, so he wasn't building a crit bike. I'll never find out, but it's interesting to speculate about the frame details.

If you do get pics, please share. I love looking at Bill's work
