    Merlin chainstay clearance

    The chainstay clearance on the new Merlin XLM and Oreas looks to be pretty tight.
    Is this a real world problem or only the tires that I have seen?
    What tires do you use on the rear of your Merlin to combat this?

    I dunno, 2.5s fit fine with room to spare on my old Somerville Merlin.
    Don't pay the $85 fee to ride land you own! Resist!
