Ah yes the infamous Shimergo. Thanks for that
Clearing the last of the stuff in my old flat today.
God bless racks..
Wassup with the chain and drive train? Surely not a fixie?
Internal geared hub : )
With a half-link chain?
Y u no kickstand?
Yes a strong half-link chain : )
50mm tyres with space for mudguards is a dream clearance. Waiting patiently for this to become the industry standard.
That will need adaptation of BOOST
Thanks for making me feel good on this otherwise average Wednesday
but my qr mtb has 2.35 + guard space so?
Seems obvious you can just put more clearance in there but apparently we all have to pay extra for it because of the Powers That Be.
Since chainstays aren't straight tubes, there needn't be any correlation between tyre clearance and axle width.
The single only consideration when looking for more tyre clearance is crank arm and chainring clearance.*
You could very easily build a boost frame with space for only 25c tyres or a 135mm QR frame with space for 2.4"
Don't believe everything people tell you if they're also trying to sell you something which fixes the problems that they tell you exist
*given you've already chosen your tubes for maximum clearance. ...and BB shell width
Also don't believe anything that Amey tells you.
Good ol' Hamrack
amey is truth
anyone know what crankset that is?
Looks like Rene Herse
they're insanely expensive!
anyone seen any other cranksets that look similar?
Velo Orange (Grand Cru) and Dia Compe (ENE) have a similar but not quite as nice vibe.
If you are not averse to buying older stuff TA Specialities Cyclotouriste can be had on eBay for not much.
Andel do a nice Campagnolo copy, cheap too.
