Re: Just a question
Off the top, I'd agree that going to a 36T sprocket is probably your best (and easiest) answer. The thoughts on the chain posted above might also be good to check in to. I have no doubt there are ways to change the bend in those seat stays from an 'innie' to an 'outie', (drop the wheel, put a jack in between the seat stays, and start opening it up) but that would get trickier making sure the bends stay the same (and would also weaken the seat stays, I should think).
Thanks for the thread. I hadn't really put much thought into the seat stays being a source of interference until now. I'll keep an eye out for that on frames in the future.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
