I'm thinking about getting a Highball A frame to run SS. I have a 120mm fork and a set of Stans Flows on Hope hubs I could use on it. I've been riding a more XC geometry SS 29er with 17.9" chainstays. I'm looking at something like the Highball or a Chromag Rootdown (not SS specific) as a more playful SS. Would the Highball fall into this category? I was considering a Nimble9 but the 2014 are going to use a 27.2 seatpost and I know I want a dropper. My other question about the Highball frame is how big of a rear tire will fit on it? I like to run 2.3-2.4 range.

2.4 tire is going to be tight...really depends on how far back you have to move the dropout due to gear choice. Have tried a 2.35 Rampage on a Arch, and it was tight.

I love mine....rides like my old Chameleon did. No problem having fun on it.

I've become quite fond of the Hans Dampf, however I'm not sure I'd want to run it on the rear of a single speed.
