    bud question

    Is the bud larger diameter than a Hudu, or just wider??....with the large head tube of the 907 , barely have room now with the lefty and large clamps. If the bud is larger diameter i probably can't fit it.

    Thanks

    bud question

    It's larger both ways. I don't have a measurement, but Bud next to my friend's HuDus is noticeably taller and wider.

    Bud is way bigger than a HuDu in every way.... I've got a Lefty/Clownshoe/Bud setup and it rubs the bottom clamp at full compression. I've got a large Pugs (5.1" HT). I could probably get about 5mm more clearance by moving my clamps up, which may eliminate it entirely, but I just haven't messed with it yet.

    You could just put more travel limiters in the Lefty. The tallness of the Bud makes it more squishy anyway so you probably wouldn't miss the travel.

    I'm already limited down to 70mm travel and clamp is up as far as possible with large head tube....I guess I'll just wait for the salsa FS frame then put a bud on at that tine thanks for the info guys.

    I moved my clamps up as far as they will go, and there's still a little rub at full compression. I'll probably have to limit travel another 5mm.

    Here's another potentially dumb question.....

    How close can the clamps be to each other at the top of the lefty? Craig?

    What i wonder, is since i have the large head tube clamps, there is a large offset built into the tip clamp.
    When I switch to a different frame with a shorter head tube, can i just adjust the clamps up, gain all the limited travel back? There has to be a safe limit of how far up you can mount both clamps....no?

    HuDu comes in similar size to a 29er tyre, Bud stomps in at 30.5".
