Indeed, indeed. My seat usually stays in the same place (nothing larger than hills where I live) so I hadn't considered that. The clearance was important to me b/c of the amount of mud my tires can collect in the wintertime, and leaves and other sticky shit.

I don't own a full-suspension bike, so I was taken back by the amount of (or lack thereof, in a few instances) clearance between the tire and seat tube when bottoming out the suspension. Do the manufacturers provide "clearance measurements" across the overall arc (or at least 0, 50 and 100% compression) between the *rim* and *seat tube*? I figure rim is better, since tire diameter would be a variable one would want to avoid. Anyways, I watched the whole thing, mesmerized.

I had not, but certainly will need to consider that. It may end up being a good place to further educate people about tire pressure and so forth. Thanks!

The Idea Provide an online website/database that allows riders to contribute and find tires that work well for a chosen terrain and season. The Data Basically, the data would be crowd-sourced from people like you, and the LBS community. Questions like: ... more ยป
