i wanted a very short chainstay 29er with loads of mud clearance
chainstays 417mm to 437mm and at least 10mm between a 2.5 tyre and any part of the frame,
dropouts clamp with three bolts giving a more stable platform than a 2 bolt slider,, it only changes ride height by 2mm at over the 20mm movement ,Posted 7 years agoNorthCountryBoyMember
Graham those are pretty nasty looking cracks! What was the out come? What was the cause? Did they sort a replacement ok?
BTW the Brodie from Si looks just right! reminds me of when I first saw the slightly curved top tube on the Lynskey 456. Somethings just look right.Posted 7 years ago
The walls of the seattube are too thin to cope with the forces caused by the the seatpost which is why the area should be reinforced with a collar / insert which is usually fusion welded in place.
You can just see the weld beading in the below pic.
