I recently bought a 2017 tcx frame to build up.

Ebay has a 10% off coupon so im tempted to buy a power meter (expires soon).
Only problem is that the bb I ordered hasnt arrived yet and the chainstay clearance looks really tight.
I wont be able to accurately measure the gap until I chuck in the bottom bracket.

Ive seen photos of people with stages but has anyone here used a pioneer or 4iiii pm?

I've just finished building my 2015 tcx (dont think the frame has changed except for rear axle) and the clearance is indeed tight.

I'm a stages user, but I know that 4iii recommend using a AAA battery as a test for clearance. I can do that for you tonight when I get home.

managed to find someone that had a pioneer setup and ending up getting a pio meter (bit cheaper than stages here)
its really close but just fits
