Quick shot of Troy's frame and tire/derailleur clearance

Folks, 430mm or thereabouts is really the limit for chainstay length if you want a big fat tire and a front derailleur. Check it out... yes, there's 3 or 4mm of room everywhere, but that's about it. And that's *after* I cut all the extraneous crap off the derailleur with a hacksaw!

Dang that is a meatyass tire! Not sure I'll be running a Dissent on there but good to know there is room for one. That means there is room for mud and GA red clay too! Guess my 2.2s or 2.4s will work just fine with room to spare. Thanks for posting!
What kind of beer do the powdercoaters drink?
