    my 90s Ibis Hakkalugis will take pretty big tires. I have 40s on one with room to spare, they also has slightly slacker geo for more offroading capabilities. Geo pushing toward a tourer

    so I hate to say it, Scot Nicol was years ahead of Matt Chester



    Last, an article about drop bar MTBs with no mention of Charlie Cunningham is heresy

    LOL at Matt Chester. Whatever happened to that guy, anyway?

    Like you said, Salsa and Ibis were using 135 spacing and specing mtb cranks to get wider rubber back there in the 90s. Which is why I never ordered them cause I wanted to run my roadie cranks.

    Then Surly came out with the cheap mass produced Cross Check in the late 90s (also before Matt Chester or whatever) and with their heavily tweaked c-stays you could stuff 42s back there (I've seen 44s I think) AND run road cranks (so I got one).

    Definitely Charlie Cunningham needs to be mentioned for sure cause he was doing this stuff probably before the writer of this article was born
