    5.7 questions...

    so, just for yucks now that the angle set may be in play...

    does the 5.7 have more tire clearance than the 5?... (yes i searched and read the Pivot web site and i couldn't find it)... i wonder if it would take a 2.3 kenda excavator or nevegal...

    someone guessed with a 150 mm fox that the HTA would be about 68.3 deg, so i figure there'd be a little more BB clearance as well? anyone actually measured either?
    i need to develop my crashing skills...

    Dog,

    I run a 2.3 nevs on my 5.7.
    BB height with 150mm would be a little more than 1/4 inch.

    I run a 2.3 Geax Lobo Loco on my Mach 5 and the tire clearance is not even close to an issue. I am sure the any 2.3-2.4 tire will fit.

    Got it figured

    Ok, my 2.4 conti mountain king tire just barely fits on my Mach 5 but doesn't fit the Mach 5.7. The side knob clearance is better on the 5.7 but the center knobs hit the crossbar on the rear triangle. That 2.4 is larger than a maxis 2.5 so the excavator should be no prob.
