    Edit: Your other thread answered this question.

    A few more though:
    -Is it actually rideable with that level of clearance?
    -Can you use the granny ring?
    -What about the typical offset on the Pug's wheels? Were you able to re-dish, or is that a new wheel?

    A Highline would surely offer even more clearance.

    Seriously.

    I wonder what the downtube clearance is at full compression.

    Very nice work!

    I know that Michelin 2.8 fits into the Pack/RFX swingarm,someone posted it before but I didn't know that full wide Gazzas fits!

    Viewing this pictures makes me wanna buy some real tires again.
    What is the max.recomented tiresize for a Fox 36, 2.8 inch?
    Thanks for the inspiriation,Tscheezy.

    Later

    Sooo, I just went out and measured my 1999 RFX seatstay width and it is not wide enough for the 3.0's. It's nowhere near 4+" wide, although the chainstays ARE wide enough. If I ordered a replacement 6 Pack / RFX rear triangle that is what I'd get? And it would bolt up to my front triangle pivots?

    just a recommendation: take the o-ring off of the green knob on top and use that as your travel indicator. The o-ring is a pain in the arse and serves no purpose. If you have extra clearance, you can also shave the 29er spacers to give you more travel. Also recommend 15cc of redrum-5wt (50-50mix) under the negative air spring for more progressive feel. These are just things that helped me customize our shop 29er demo.

    Sweet rig!!

    Such a defeatist attitude, mon frer. You've owned a Titus too long.

    No granny. I left the 3 smallest cogs off the cassette (the loose ones) and used spacers to move the cassette out. It's a 1x6 right now. 118mm e-type bb spaced about 4mm to the drive side with spacers. I could gain a lot more clearance if I tried, but that's what I had laying around. The chain clears the tire with no issues using this setup.

    The tire just barely buzzes the f der stop at full compression. I added 5 psi to the shock. Problem solved. It's a snow bike. I'm not going huge on this thing. The rear wheel is something I built from parts of other wheels. Since going to the Mav fork I had the old rigid fork's front wheel sitting there so I unlaced it and put it on an XT with some spare spokes with no wacky dish. It's just a regular wheel with a wide rim.

    Yup. Another damn cool thing about Turner stuff: cross-generational compatability. You can see the clearance in the pics below. BTW- 37.4 bone-crushing pounds as currently set up.

    Ha ha ha, welcome to the world with minimal tire clearance! Just kidding, that is superb.

    [SIZE="6"]That is so awesome!!!!!!![/SIZE]

    Last night I was looking at the two Spot rear triangles that I have and I was thinking I should pop the Endo off the Pugsley's front tire and see what the Marge looks like in there. If the Marge clears you could *probably* squeeze something like a 2.7 Timberwolf in the Spot traingle. I'll check it after work later tonight...

    BTW, where'd you get a pushed DHX-A?

    It's not what you know, or even who you know. It's what sticker sheets have.

    Seriously though, why didn't you get a 6-Pack rear triangle? Having a variety of parts at your disposal is definitely the way to go.

    The Push DHXa was a goof, I saw your frankenFox thread.

    As far as the rear my thinking was the Spack and making the Spot uber XC. Maybe I should have gone with a Pack rear. I was thinking that the other day too. But from looking at the 5-Pack threads and your tests/graphs/charts with the Spot rear, I think I'll be good to go.

    The Marge's are just plain badass - the ultimate snowbike.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Be Quick. Don't Hurry.

    Funny bike. But in your haste to put FrankenTurner together, you reversed the rear triangle. Those seat stays are obviously chain stays.

    What the heck are you people talking about??

    Well, anyway, this thing KICKS ASS! If you have a Pugs on order, cancel it. Tell DT on Monday that you want a 6-Pack rear triangle and call up Larry for the other shiny bits. It rides just like a Turner, but goes ANYWHERE. Freaking fun.

    But enough yapping, let's get to the bike porn.







    Another clearance shot:



    Spacers to move the cranks out, and the chain-tire clearance (in the second largest cog in back- the largest works great too):





    The spacers inside the cassette spider to move it out:



    They're baaaaaaack....

    ...once again you proove you're the undisputed King of the mod.

    I doubt DT will be answering the phone on Monday, it'll be kinda hard to reach while laying on the floor laughing his arse off.
