Question about Pelso

  1. Possible to switch out 700cc wheels for 650cc wheels if change the Johnson fork?
  2. If possible would that still result in elimination of interference with chain on right turn?
  3. Would that, then, drop the seat height from 23 to 22?

    I'll take a stab. 
     
    !. Sure, but its a disc brake bike, so there is no need to change the fork. This way most of the steering geometry is maintained. 
    2. Yes, but even with 700c you have to turn very tight to have an issue with it. If you are turning that tight, you might be in the smaller chainring, which also helps. 
    3. Yes.

    Thanks, Jim.  This is a really good development with Bacchetta.  It incorporates many of the features of the M5 and adds features that are unique to Bacchetta.  
     
    And then ... is the frame (only) a purchase option?

    I assume there will be. 
     
    I am excited about more boom and wheelbase, getting my inner ear forward of the rear axle, my seat away from the rear tire, and my weight more centered between the wheels. Equally excited about tire clearance for 40mm+. The lower sea t height is nice. I just hope its stiffer than the first run of frames, or at least stiff enough. I have not made any phone calls yet.
