    I had a look at your thread. I struggled a bit with the french.

    About 9 pages in (of 22), you show a few photos of the tyre clearance. Does "RK 2.2" mean race king 2.2? Am i correct to interpret that you had a 57.7mm (measured) width tyre on there, and still had over 6mm clearance on each side? (from the tyre to the chainstays)

    the technical drawing posted in that thread showed much less tyre clearance.

    i see that your latest photos have a maxxis ardent 2.25 on the rear. what is the tyre clearance like with that tyre?


    Iam also curious about how much space it really is. For me this is the only issue why I have not order this frame.

    I have 5mm left for each side between the frame and my ardent 2.25 @ 1,4b

    First time long time...planning for a big 2018 and need to swap out my HT for a FS. I have narrowed it down to a FM058SL or a NOS Tallboy CC. I am leaning toward the FM058SL with the Monarch XX.

    Couple of items I have learned during research:
    - FM058SL now has a max tire size listed of 2.3 on the Alibaba site
    - The SL adds $100 to the frame cost
    - tskubi's thread has a lot of good data on the thru axle and pivots to support easy upgrade over stock decisions

    I haven't purchased yet, but should pull the trigger soon as I am still debating paint.

    That's based on an axle-to-crown height of 514mm. A 140mm fork would push that to 550-560mm slackening both angles.

    According to my calcs a 550mm crown height would translate to a HFA of 68.26 which is kinda like the transition bandit

    Regardless of geometry, that's an ugly frame.

    Would it look better with several hundred dollars glued around the top tube?

    BTW, why are you shilling for the Motorola DROID Turbo 2? I hope you're getting paid.

    There are plenty of Chinese carbon FS bikes that don't look terrible AND are in the same price range.

    I would look into the Ican P-8, P-9, or A-7 before this frame. I have a P-8 built up with a 140mm Fox fork. Pretty nice bike. Rear suspension is similar to Transition suspension. This is kind of an old school 4 bar suspension.

    Looks like none of those are 29ers? I can't even see a link to the "A-7" (assuming that's supposed to be hyphenated. The others aren't, at least from what confusing blurb I'm reading).
