    BFL on large marge

    Bike didn't sell on eBay, shame you still have to pay the shocking £33 ad bill!

    Anyways, wasted no time sticking the Nate tires onto my moonlander for bog crawling.

    4.7" big fat larrys don't always go well on bikes without huge clearance, but tried them out on the much smaller 65mm large marge rims.

    Rear clearance is the main problem when fitting 4.7" tires to a frame designed around a 3.8" tire......however I gave it a go.



    Front rack just clears!



    High gear...



    Front left fork leg



    Just looks like normal larry to me,,,



    Front right fork leg that's offset has more clearance



    Granny ring on front selected but still no chain fowling, notice front mech only clears by a couple of mm though...

    More importantly, how does it ride—any side-to-side flex-induced rub? Looks like a snug fit.

    Not yet, though I have only been up and down the road hitting bumps and riding up kerbs, all fine so far.

    I think it will be fine to use as I rarely use the low gears, even on sand I tend to be mid cassette etc.

    Will get it offroad for a better test once I can prise myself away from the moonlander....
