    assuming you're trying to point out the hardtails in the background?
    check the chainstays, I think they're way too close together at the bridge for a fat tire.
    I mean one can hope, but most of SC's lineup isn't exactly adventure oriented.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    I'm being hopeful, they look oddly large to me.

    I did some measuring, but, keep in mind: there's lots of silver in there with reflection, so it's difficult to determine a tube tangent, and there are very few pixels to work with.

    I'd estimate clearance at the seat stay yoke somewhere around 85 to 105 mm. The chain stay yoke looks less forgiving to boot.

    I hope I'm wrong! The more the merrier.

    This dropouts look like they're from the ne Highball Aluminum

    This is a shot of the seatstay yoke of the highball carbon.

    Looks similar to me

    Probably just test mules. They do a lot of that. (Note how the frames are hacked in various spots)

    I suspect they bend those seat stays in a big loop like that for ease of construction to test ideas. The BB areas look way too skinny for a fattie.

    Interesting though.
