    yes 445mm is from the middle of the drop out, so you can go tighter at 435mm or longer at 455mm
    Zen is a fantastic custom builder

    So you guys are having two 853 bikes made? One offshore and one from Zen? Can you give details on any differences between the offshore and the one from Zen, or are they the same bike, with the same materials, but one being handmade in the USA.

    My rule is if you need more than ~ .5in/1cm clearance.... Than no amount of space beyond that will help.

    there is almost 15-20mm on each side of the tire and at least 30-40mm between the center of the tire and the chanistay yoke. To me that's plenty.

    MSRP is $1850
    32T + 11/36 cassette gives you a really good range to start, then it becomes a preference and it all depends where you ride but if you're not happy with 1 ring up-front, you can always add another.

    huh, one ring. well, thanks for the confirmation....but thats a biG fat tire deal breaker on RSD for moi. this bike is for AT (all terrain use) so 2 rings is a must. not sure what sorta riding ppl would buy a fat bike for to be able to accomplish it on a single ring. looks like adding: front derail w lever and a ring could be $200 as well.....all the best selling these things...they look koool.
    peace out and happy new yar
    ps: live in the west so of course we use these things in the mtns . grade = need for granny

    By the sounds of it, you're looking for the "entire" package. Well, you are only $200 away from it. For $1850 + $200 = $2050 plus taxes, you can have an ideal/perfect bike. Without the FD, extra shifter, extra ring and pedals, the bike only weighted in at 29lbs. It's all based on one's fitness level. Some people might want to put a larger ring in the front, others might feel more confortable with a granny. What we chose to offer is the middle of the road set-up, which allows anyone to change it based on their fitness or where they ride. In the grand scheme of things, you can easily push that bike uphill on a 32T single ring with 11/36 rear.
    The value we offer is outstanding. We did our homework. Try finding a better build for that price.
    Thank you for your comment. We value all opinions and who knows, maybe we will offer a dual ring set-up in the future as an option.
    Happy New Years. Best

    Yep. Most any bike I would buy off the rack and uncustomized would need at least a few changes to suit my needs. I would never eliminate a bike over a single chainring. Oh, and I wouldn't create an account on a website just to let everybody know I wouldn't buy a bike due to a chainring.

    Outstanding value it is. I put a deposit for a large. The 1x10 was the thing that sealed the deal for me. I have so many chainrings in the parts bin that I don't want to pay for them and the 32t NW can be put on my trail bike. To me that is 200$ of value ADDED!

    Not sure what kinda people need two rings. All my bikes have one, and cassettes from 11-28 to 11-36. Realize too that cassettes now go up to 42t. If you can't climb something with 30 or 32 up front and 42 in the rear, it's not the bike that's the problem. I've been running like this for years now and it's so nice not having to worry about two shifts, especially given how poorly front derailleurs have always worked. The biggest reason we don't ride single rings up front with setups close to the 1x11 drivetrain is that we have convinced ourselves we cant. We can't turn those gears. Trust me, humans are far more adaptable than that...

    You'll have to forgive me. I only ride my bike to the mall. I get a little defensive.
