    Cielo MTB 650b

    Hi guys,
    I'm looking for my new frame and, apart from the Ritchey, I'm in love with this one. Anyone has tasted it?
    As all you know, Cielo bikes are 29er, but the XS size come in 27.5, which is what I'm looking for (I can't see an small size with those big wheels!). But taking care on the geometry table, you can see that the chainstay is "only" 422 mm, where the majority of other frames are 425 even 430. Do you think it's enough? Would it have the necessary clearance in mud conditions?
    Thanks!

    PD: sorry for my english, I'm writing you from Spain.

    They are absolutely gorgeous bikes. I think the one I saw at NAHBS in Austin 2 years ago had sliding dropouts, which should give you the flexibility to dial in the chainstay length and tire clearance you prefer. Talk to them about it... I'm sure they can build you just what you want.
