    09 Pugs Rear End Flex?

    I have the grey 09 pug frame.
    When putting the pedal down on the steep climbs the rear will flex and buzz the rear tire against the chainstay.
    On the 2010 and above they put a brace on the disc side, does the back flex less with that mod?

    I don't get any rub in mine... and I've got 80 mm rims. Are you running huge(r) rims?

    Nope. Only large marge 36H with Endomorphs. Granny gear front and 32 rear is when I notice the buzz on the steep climbs.

    Most likely it's the tire buzzing the front der cage.

    Tire Flex

    More likely is that the rim or tire are flexing and not the frame... I get that when I drop into Granny gear. I get it worse when I run lower tire pressure.

    Good luck!

    Just a guess, but check spoke tension and hub adjustment (might be loose) too.....
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Where does it rub? If it rubs on the front derailleur, tune it out just a bit or stop it out just a bit.
    Yes, steel is most certainly stronger than aluminum EVERY time.
