Guillaume

It’s finally finished (I had to call in a favor to get some tire specs, then the holidays interrupted). Here’s the rundown for the geeks:
-71/73 head and seat angles
-58cm toptube, 49cm seat tube
-45.5cm chainstays, 305mm BB height
-Set up for 1x use with 170mm rear hub spacing and Paragon low mount dropouts
-Clearance for a Big Fat Larry (110+mm) tire on a 90+mm rim
-About 4.6# (2100g)

This is the first time I’ve done a 170mm spacing frame (good thing Anvil makes a 172 dummy axle!) as well as by far the largest tire clearance I’ve ever built for. I can stick my *head* between the stays (should have gotten a picture of that…) I think it’ll be a fun bike to bounce around in the snow!
