When you think it can’t get better...
What's the fattest tyre you guys fit in the rear? I want to fit a cx/gravel tyre to join a ride next week but don't want to order before knowing
Might be useful to specify which frame you have...
Oh sure, sorry. It's a 2014 histo
I ordered the cheapest CX looking tyres on Bike24. 30mm fits easily in the back!
Awesome. How is the ride?
What's the fork? OG fork is where I found there's not much clearance; 25s are like the limit.
I dunno what fork it is since I borrowed it from a friend who also bought it second hand. But I think it's a generic road fork
It handles like a ship now with more rake and more relaxed steerer tube. But I'd like to fit fatter tyres to be more confident in fast curves
Pre-order for the new Work frames up today. Ordered one of the metallic smoke ones to fix the fact that my current one is about two sizes too small; pretty psyched.
That Rainbow Smoke looks sick...
They all sick as any previous colorway.
Love my orange one, but the new green and black with sparkle...
What size is the current? I'm on the smaller end of frames.
I believe it's the "58" which had various titles from "L" to "XL" over the years I think; it's 58ctt but only 54ctc on the seat tube. Very weird geo, but either way I have like 8 inches of seatpost showing. But also I live in the US so shipping would probably be a whole thing.
Weird geo indeed, reach would be too much for me anyway!
Right, it's like 56 or 57 top tube, and then either 54 or 58 seat tube depending on how you're measuring. Very odd. I bought it thinking "oh 58's fit me" and the actual reality of the frame is very small on me lol.
I ride size 58 road bikes etc. However, my Mash is a 62 and fits like a dream.
That's very good to hear. I'm also running it with some real wild swept bars so I think even if the reach is a little on the long side, it'll work out.
Do cinelli frames come that big? On their website nothing shows more than 58..🤔
Mine's an OG Mash Bolt so yeah.
Time to put this to bed for another year...
