    Gary Fisher Superfly (1st gen), magic gear?

    Hi all,

    I bet all sizes have the same chain stays, but mine is an XL. Non-SS version.

    Anyone ever found a magic gear for it? I can work from there to find what I'll best try, I need something approximately 36x16 worth.

    Thanks!

    Get as close as you can with the gears and cogs you have (and a new chain). Measure how much you can push down the chain from straight across and I can run some numbers. You can use an old chain and get the magic gear for that chain.

    And you need a precise number for the chainstay length.

    Thanks folks. I know the procedure, have done it before, but experiences from others with the same frame can save a lot of time and effort.

    Considering to complete this build first as a SS. Have had the frame for over a year, but never completed it. Can't get cranks I like (longer than 180mm and not heavy), or wheels (wide rim, not heavy, not expensive). Else, it's going to be pretty nice. Salsa carbon 17 bars, custom 470mm/55mm offset steel fork.

    It's a real pain to be shopping for saddles in 2010. A plain Flite, over a decade ago, was mighty fine at 201g. try and find a match for that, less than €100...

    Oh, every frame deserves a chance as a SS.
    This one is destined to be 1x9, when I sort out the build, and the inevitable chain guide dilemma. I've bought a Rotor 38t ring for it, no less...
