Top o' the mornin' to ya.
A bike for Marc Schmittenberg
of Phoenix, Arizona.
Marc must be a tough nut.
Anybody who's riding a rigid fork in Arizona deserves some respect.
This ain't amateur hour.
Personally, I'm a fan of fat tires, how 'bout you?
Above is a good pic to illustrate the tire clearances.
When building these bikes, a 2.55" tire on a fat rim is used as the standard.
Considering the chain stays start at just shy of 16.5",
that's pretty good, with plenty of room
for just about anything short of fat bike territory.
Marc sent me some shots of some open wheeled racecars
from the 60's to give an idea of what he wanted for paint.
How about some Minutemen?
