Thanks, yeah definitely a bit strange, looking at it seems the 49 is closest to a small in most frames but I would probably go with a 53, is toe overlap any issue with the 49?
I got toe overlap on the 56cm.
I dont have issues with toe overlap, but it does have toe overlap. All smal bikes with normal "road bike" geometry and 700c wheels will have toe overlap.
ah ok thats good to know
If you clear the top tube standing over the 53 cm I don´t think that would be a bad choice. You can probably get the 49 cm to work as well, but the 53 cm might be a more comfortable fit. If you want a really agressive position with drops, the 49 cm might be a better option, but who want to do that anyway?
True haha I think comfort is the priority as I'd like something that I could use for longer rides, wasn't planning on drops either really but the option would be nice.
There is a lot of personal perference and stemlength and seatpost/seat position is a big factor, but 53 cm does not seem like a bad choice.
Single speeders, what's the biggest 700c tyre size you've managed to get under a caliper on the rear? I need to keep playing with chain lengths and gear combo's but so far i'm maxing out at 32 before the tyre rubs the (TRP) caliper.
Fixed but pretty sure this was 35s and 45mm guards
Weekend mud fest
Is anyone looking to shift a 62?
30mm Tires, 41mm Fenders (Diacompe F 35), plenty of space
Before i do an add is anyone interested in a Mash fork with caliper and canti mounts? Very similar atc and rake as a Surly fork but with a bit more clearance and obviously more braking options. I picked it up for a project that didn't happen, trial fitted to my Steamroller but never rode it anywhere. Being an impatient idiot i cut the steerer to 190mm before concluding i don't want 2 forks for the same bike. Might be able to do a 56 if you ran it slammed with a low stack stem but more suited to a 53 or under. Would like £90.
@ginllfixit might be, he's building a steel fixed and wants a straight nice fork
Edit: his bike will be too big, ignore me
Poo brown roller rolling nicely
Dynamo lights added. For winter use, but I know myself too well, will propably stay this way year around
Nice having a fit and forget set up
Never having to worry about lights is v nice.
... I had a Steamroller once
