    steel frames with tire clearance

    I'm looking for steel a vertical dropout frame w/ or w/o ebb with lots of tire clearance. Id like to be able to stouts or RR 2.4's on velocity p35s. I thought about a bandersnatch, im looking for something with a little longer top tube in xl.

    Any suggestions?

    look into the on one inbred. I am not sure if they have one with vertical dropouts, but mine with horizontal dropouts has lots of clearance.

    Raleigh XXIX has generous fork and seat/chain stay clearance
    Steel
    EBB (first 3 years set-screw type, '10 has pinch-bolt)
    Vertical dropout
    Replacable hangar
    Reasonable price
    My '09 is an xl and the top tube is generous. I am 6"3" and am putting a sightly shorter stem on it.
    The stock Stouts have tons of room

    OS Blackbuck, although all may be gone for now, supposed to be a new batch with more sizes coming maybe this year.



    Here's a 2.4 Racing Ralph on a 35mm wide Salsa Gordo. Clearance is about 5mm, maybe a little less. It's rubbed a few times, but only very tip of the knob buzz as far as I can tell.



    The Ralph may be the tallest tire to fit in this frame as at the seatstay brace/bridge there is only about 3-4 mm clearance with the small knobs on Ralph. I'm thinking a big knob true 2.4 on the rear of this frame would be too much.

    Tire clearence on my 29" Inbred is not very good.
    My 26" Inbred has a lot more clearence.

    yes, the Singulars will happily swallow a 2.4RR or 2.55 Wierwolf.
    Just a regular guy.

    Another vote for the Mariachi- no issues at all with clearance with WTB WW 2.55, Rampage 2.35's, Ardent 2.4's, MK 2.4's. Even with my ~200# torquing on climbs out of the saddle as a SS I have heard no rub on the stays-
    I Just wish I could ride more!

    Plenty of clearance on the Haro Mary with the WTB WW or Rampage in back.
