    Tubing suggestions for use with Paragon's steel chainstay yoke

    Has anyone built a frame using Paragon's chainstay yoke for 3" tires? What tubing did you use for the chainstay? The yoke has a stub with a 20.2 mm diameter that is designed to accept the chainstay slip fit over the top of it.

    I have assisted on one for a buddy (I just did the welding, not any of the mitering/fitup), and we used 22.2mm x .9, as I recall.

    You could do a tapered tube there if you wanted, there is a .9 x 22.2 single taper chainstay out there somewhere though I don't recall right now who sells it. The Nova .8 one would probably be fine too.

    Thanks Walt. I was hoping there was a tapered option. Tapered stays look much more elegant to me. I'll look around for the one you mentioned.

    Found them, I think. I misremembered, they are .85 wall. Should work great, though:

    Note that they are kinda thin at the small end (.9mm) so be careful. I might do the Nova .8mm ones instead, honestly, because welding that small of a .9mm tube to a dropout seems like it's asking for trouble.
