    Soma B-Side v2 stand over with 80mm shock?

    This might be a dumb question, but does anyone know if the B-side's stand over spec is taking into account having an 80mm travel White Brothers shock on it? Or is it based on using a stock Soma 453mm rigid fork.

    Thanks

    While I'm not 100%, I thought that I read on their site that the bike was designed around at WB 80mm fork, so I'd assume that is the baseline. I'd think that Soma would respond to an email pretty quickly.
    FWIW, I'm running a 100mm Fox (479 mm a2c ... ~ 460mm sagged) and I think it handles just right.

    Also, even with my "taller" fork my bike's actual stand over is about an inch lower than what is stated in their chart.
