    Any dually frames with 197 spacing?

    Hey folks,

    Well, grabbed a Framed Wolftrax bike on the way to a 3 week camping trip.
    Got to ride it a few times and love it....problem is, so does my wife She even made the comment, "Isn't this bike too small for you?" Hmmm...

    Got me thinking.....seeing how I still love dually's, why not try and get a fat-dually frame that I could use the wheelset from my Framed and get a 29+ wheelset that could be swapped between the two as well.

    Have done some searching for a suitable dually frame but the 197 spacing I have on the Framed hasn't seemed to make it to the dually world yet?


    Just hoping I'm missing something....

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Do you have a thru axle or QR? I think the Wolftrax is a QR 197 so that may present a difficulty in sourcing a dually if you want to swap wheels. I think even the pub hubs stayed QR. So in addition to the axle length you will also be dealing with the dually dropouts being for a 12mm thru axle rather than a 5mm QR that sits inside an axle in the hub.

    Honestly, I'd just get the wife her own wolftrax or one of the Woman's MN options. Good luck!
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    The Maxx looks pretty nice.

    My Wolftrax has the 12mm thru-axle, which is handy.

    Thought about just getting another hardtail, but I just gotta' have a dually of some sort in my stable
