Attack Trail owner(s) I need a favor please
I'm considering one of these bikes for a 650B conversion and need a clearance check done. Large frame would be best as it has the steepest seat tube angle @ 73.8 degrees but I'll be happy with whatever you got available.
If someone owns one these Attack Trails (2010 or 2011) please let ALL the air out of the rear shock, bottom it out hard and see how close it comes to the seat post (or anything else). I'm looking for at least 13mm of clearance space between tire and seatpost and the more the better for a tall 650B tire like the new Nobby Nick. A picture would be great if possible.
Thanks in advance and long live Quad Link 2 :thumbsup:
650B tire clearance confirmed!!!
For those that want to know I got my hands on an Attack Trail frame and test fit what is probably the tallest 650B tire out there the Schwalbe NN 2.35" tire (about 27.75" tall). No problem clearance wise what so ever at full bottom out. Couple mm's to spare. No custom dropouts needed for this frame. Dam cool IMO.
What is not so cool is the weight. Frame/shock (X-Fusion 02 RCX)/dropouts/head cups (just the cups which weigh nothing)/and Maxle axle for a medium came in a 8.69lbs. I thought my scale might be wrong so I weighed some light weights and it's bang on correct. So yeah, a bit porky but pretty exciting it clears 650B with no issues.
