    Pedal strike was never an issue with the Straggler (while I often scrap my flats on my daily). You could argue it's all in my head, or a confidence thing, but ultimately I corner better on lower BB bikes (and yes I have tried old school geo CX race bikes on the same sort of terrain too). I'm not saying the Straggler on 650B was perfect, and I found its front end a bit vague, but it was super stable and it could corner faster than everything else I've ridden before or since.

    IRL it would be less than 31mm (it's rim dependent but the tyre nominal width does not equal tyre height).
    Plus, as Ed said, a lot of OTP bikes have a way too high BB to start with. I much preferred the handling on my Straggler with 650B wheels, although it was designed for the same sort of volume on 700c.

    Skåne County is good for sportgrus.

    Ideally you would want something around the 65/70mm-width mark. Berthoud stops at 60mm. Honjo H-95 are 62mm but flat so will work with your tyre. H-80 are the the same width but round.

    You may not have experienced the 90's, but purple anodised MTB stuff was all the rage back then (when the bike was new). The bike probably fell off at some point and the rack took the impact. Pink computer probably ended up in a clearance section at a massive discount.
    I rest my case.

    That's just an old MTB. Anti demands effort.

    Perfect for summer #sportgrus Neil. You're in the wrong country though.

    I assume you mean Raceblade Longs (the regular ones are useless)? I run 25c on mine and I get some rub in the front when out of the saddle. I wouldn't recommend anything bigger, it might fit on the stand, but won't work well IRL.
