OK, I can either make my own thread or keep shitting up the shart-q thread with my geometry questions. Maybe this could be be a reference to others as well.
I’m having one of tarck’s illustrious frame buildeurs make me a frame to replace my stupid dumpster Peugeot that I’ve been dithering way too hard on. It’s never going to be anywhere near the bike I want it to be, I need to give up and move on.
So, here’s what I’ve wanted to do for a while:
Fit similar to a 59cm square road bike, but with short stem, swoopy risers, and long tt to maintain reach. So like a 640mm top tube and a 50mm
Fits 29x2.3" XC tire.
Front end geometry such that it’ll handle a load decently with an off the shelf fork.
~75mm bb drop, with 170mm road cranks
~73° seat tube angle
So kinda a mash-up of proto-29er stupid ideas with a little modern reach shenanigans. It’ll have slicks and fenders in the winter and 29er knobbies in the summer. Basket and dyno 24/7
So I think the first thing I need to figure out is front end geometry so I can pick out a fork. I like the Kona P2 forks, the Sutra LTD fork has one set of mid leg zits but I cant find a clear answer on its tire clearance. https://konaparts.com/product/700c-touring-fork-cromoly-100x9/ The Salsa CroMoto is another option, I believe both are in the 45-50mm offset range.
