    Camber Owners...Anyone else hit their chain stay while pedaling?

    Not a bid deal at all, but I occasionally hit the inside of either one of my heels on my chain stay when pedaling. I assume they widen the chain stays for the wider dropout spacing. Any one else?

    Yep ... Guilty as well on my SJ, to the point where i was rubbing the paint off. Put some 3M poly helicopter tape

    I have a foot that is turned out and use a peddle extention. Having said that, the Camber is the only bike I tested that I hit the Stays. It is also the bike I want. I started a thread yesterday on it also and I'm looking for a wider crank set.

    I hit mine from time to time, but I also hit the stay on my Trek STP200 I was riding before I got my Camber. I really only hit the drive side chain stay.... but again, I also only hit the drive side on the last bike. Since this is a metal bike, I think the clear protective tape is an idea I will be sticking on my bike (or a full wrap chain stay protector).
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    Never had this problem on the Camber I owned or the Stumpjumper I currently own.

    It may be your crank, I don't hit mine but the PF30 is set up pretty wide.
    If the path ahead looks dangerous ------- it probably is!
