    Could you measure the distance between center of rear axle and chainstay bridge? I wonder what they have for tire clearance on stock 650b.

    I thought about waiting for Pinion last year, and then decided not to spend money. Kinda regret it now - as much as I like my Helius... Also regret having it painted (in color my wife and daughter picked). Should have anodized it..

    Seems plenty of clearance on 2.35x650b Nobby Nics.
    Has at least 1/2" clearance all around

    RH side has cut down ESI grip and Pinion 18 speed shifter.

    The cable for the Pinion is a single cable,not 2 seperate cables.It wraps around at the gearbox end and has 2 clamping blocks at the shifter end to attach the wnds.

    Crank Arm arrived this morning..

    Nice little 22 miler this afternoon.

    Gearbox feels amazing,bike is very quiet,almost sounds belt driven.

    No Problems,Mud clearance is amazing,Running Nobby Nic 2.35.

    Bike seems to ride very well,feels as fun and agile as my 26" AC.

    Need to do a few more hours to bed the forks and shock in.

    Happy
