- +20mm IS Disc Mount on the frame means the same sized rotors can be used front and rear with the same caliper/adaptor.

Questions

Julien

Hey guys, did you keep track of how long the chain was (number of links) when you measured the geo? I really struggle to get even a sligntly adequate chain-tension. It's either too loose with the chain being so long that I have to pull the wheel so far back, that the tensioners project the dropsouts, meaning I can't really use them and have to creatw the tension by hand, pulling the wheel back. In the other hand, if I remove a link, it's so tight and stiff I can barely get the chain ober the sprocket. I'm running a KMC Z610HX and the TMS Chain Tensioners btw. Hope you can help me out with this one. Cheers!

Hi Julien!
We don't have that number, sorry! A couple of things to check:
- If your chain is old, it will have stretched which can sometimes make getting the right tension tricky.
- The frame was designed around 22:16 so if you're not running that gear ratio it will be harder to get the tension right.
- We haven't seen the TMS tugs, but if they're bottoming out before giving you the correct tension, some smaller tugs like the Arcade Micro Chain Tugs will help.
Hopefully this gives you some ideas to work with!
