got inspired by this and want to convert my volume cutter to something similar, with a carbon cx fork.
Problem is, I'm sceptical about the rear clearance. Chainstay gives about 40-45mm clearance 325mm from the centre of the axle (where a 40ish 650b tyre should be the widest). I very much doubt it'll be enough for a 1.75inch-47mm tyre. Other option could be a smaller 650b tyre like a 1.5inch or even less - though believe it will be too small for the general purpose of a 650b anyways.
Any ways around it or should I just ditch the project? 700x32 seems too meh...
You dont need to run 47. You could run 40's or 42's as long as that CX fork is raising your BB up.
