Default Re: Hello

hi acid welcome to the forums, hope that frame is big enough, i wanted to use a certain bike on my build initially, and other members quickly pointed out the clearance issues i would have, did more research and found that bikes with slanted top tubes (idk the technically correct term but bear with me here) will usually have clearance issues, ones with straight or curved tubes usually had the room though.

anyways let us know how it goes, good luck.

edit:also if you did buy a slant head undo the top bolts and turn the head so the spark plug is facing forward instead of backwards how it comes stock. will give you more clearance, i always thought mine was too tight, then i saw a build sportscarpat did on a very similar bike (we were both using worksman INB frames), and saw he had done this and had quite a bit more room to work with then me.

i had seen other bikes with the same thing done n just not taken it into consideration until then though.
