Understandable. My stem is slammed, but it depends on your preference.

Hi, Nice build.

I am interested by this frame. What is the tire clearance - I could not find the spec on their web site. Does a 30C fit?
Still happy with the ride ?

Very happy with the bike after 5000mi. Tire clearance is good, but I haven't tried anything bigger than 25c. I'm very confident 30c would fit.

Have you problems with a slipping seatpost? Mine won't stay in place (with carbon paste) tried 6-8NM.

30c fits easily btw. I put even crosstyres in 32c on it👍

Thanks for confirming 32c!

Funny you mention slipping seatpost. I never had problems for the first year, 5000mi. Recently, it started slipping, so I took out the post, cleaned and added carbon paste, then took a file and roughed up the gripping surface of the wedge bolt. No more slip.

hm weird. The gripping surface is rather rough (it already took off some paint of my seatpost). I will try different carbon paste, maybe it will help. Thanks for your reply.
Crosstyre are even 33c. I guess 35c will fit aswell.
