    New question here. ATTN: small Six Pack homers...question.

    I saw Dr. Thunder's post and his clearnace woes with a 36 VAN on a medium pack, so has anyone out there ever put a FOX 36 TALAS on their small Pack and have the same clearnace issues with the downtube? If so, what did you do to correct it or did you just leave it well enough alone?

    I don't want to go the dremel route though, I've got piss poor mechanical skills. If there are issues, I'll be asking for the CK crown race from Larry. Just looking to see if I need to order the crown race before building her up. Thanks!

    My Van36 would hit my small Packs down tube, never was a problem though and it would or could only cause any damage during a fall. During transporting I just stuffed a rag between the two clashing parts and called it finished.
