nice bike new guy, what size tires are you running? How big a tire do you think could be squeezed in there?

I'm trying to decide between this and that fat tire capable single speed that bikesdirect posted about the other day.

that's a 23 in there now. 28s would fit, not sure about 32s. i'll throw a cross wheel on it later and see.

Didn't really wanna start a new thread for this.

Maybe someone here can help wit my dilemma. Im stuck between the Scanttante, Pake, or Spicer. The Frame+Fork comes out to be about the same $$. Any particular differences between the frames that make one better than the other?

Scanttante: Double Butted Chromoly Steel, 1-1/8", 27.2 seatpost
Pake: 4130 Crmo, 1", 27.2(not sure)
Spicer: Double butted 520 tubing, 1", 26.8

All of those bikes are going to deliver pretty much the same thing. Other than looks, headset size and seatpost size the differences are minimal.

you guys wanna help me pick a size?

I don't know crap about geometry. All I know is that All of my road bikes are about 55cm ETT but never under. My newest road bike has a 55.5cm ETT and it fits perfect with a 120cm stem.

Any help will be appreciated. I'm 5'9" with an inseam of 32".

Thanks

my guess is 54cm.

Thanks for posting the photos, what is the max size tire you think the SSR would accomodate? I am looking to purchase one as a commuter. Thx

Please post pics as I'm really considering buying this fork. Is it much lighter than the anchor thats currently on my groupbuy frame?

I'd say it depends most on what fork you run as the rear will clear 28s and possibly even 32s (i haven't tried yet)

sure. yes.... that's a ton of seatpost. yes, that's a ton of saddle to bar drop. the fork i have w/ a longer steerer is on my road racing bike. not to mention the angle of the shot makes it look even more like a joke bike but whatever. nobody has to ride it but me.



p.s. i built those wheels up a week or so ago. miche HF to DB wheelsmith spokes and deep v's. cost me about $200 total.

6'1". that frame's a 58. the slightly sloping geometry makes it look even worse than it is
