Hey LesterOfPuppets, what MTB are you riding that allows you to clear a 44t chainring? I'm in the market for a new MTB and am struggling to find anything higher than 30 or 32t up front. I'm not looking to put anything like a 50t road crank on there, but are there any bikes/frames you know of that could clear a 36, 38, or maybe even a 40 up front? Thanks in advance!
