Stupid close tire [fixed]

Thank you :slight_smile:

You did a great job. No one will know you filed it unless you tell them.

The explanation is maybe simpler than that: the tube is left as-is because it is welded like this and there is no incentive to take the extra machining step after and increase the production cost.

As you demonstrated, it is fairly easy to file the excess yourself if you are part of the few that need the extra clearance on this particular frame :wink:

Yep I also figured it was a relic left from the building process. Leave too little and it is a major problem. Leave literally just enough and its too much work.

Today I
had the chance to take a photo of the one I filed down back then.


Looks good!

What about the sides. They look extremely close. Is there any rubbing there?

Not for mine. I have probably a dozen or two hours on it since this post. Yay.
