  • There’s this so far. Will see how my interest in bike photography develops :-)

    N.M. Horijsont First ride

  • I'd be looking at a 57mm casing width instead

  • 30mm internal rim and clearance for at least 2.5 tyres. Anything less than that is for gravel riding.

  • I've found a PinkBike test which put's a 2.35 Magic Mary at 61.5mm casing width and 59mm tread width. Clearance around the casing really isn't going to be the problem looking at the section below, with some proper dimples I think I will take the plunge.

    30mm internal rim and clearance for at least 2.5 tyres. Anything less than that is for gravel riding.

    Noted.

  • Pretty sure I’m riding 2.4’s or something at the moment and would gladly go fatter.

  • Then again, I'm still on 2.25 and shred the gnar hard

  • My 2.35 mezcal on i25 comes at 59mm. 2.35 Nobby Nic on I30 is a bit wider at 61 for casing , but thread is just 58mm.

  • This is why I wasn't very fussed, currently on 2.25 on 19mm rims, but then again the Kona is 30% road bike, 65% gravel bike, and maybe 5% gnar shredder. Would be nice to not want to replace this for a while though. And I just found out I can take the train to the Ore mountains and back for 24 euros, so I see more gnar shredding in my future.

  • Thanks, good to have some more figures!

  • Serious inspiration.

  • Bent down tube and sliders?!

  • Except for maybe half of it, but it looks good and they manage to squeeze 2.4 inch clearance out of regular chainstays. 2.6 at 430mm chainstay...

  • There’s also still that other steel frame, all tacked now. Starting to get properly excited for it, was planning on painting it myself but might go for powder if I can get some flake action like on the Kona and the Raleigh @Maj had done recently.

  • Could this be something nearing a final version? Not sure what to think of the proportions of 38mm downtube 35mm seattube and 31.7mm toptube.
