Good comments, but this has nothing to do with what the OP is asking.Just rode the 58cm frame the other week. I'm 6'4" and felt it was a little small for me, otherwise it was a very nice riding bike. Really liked the 1x11 SRAM Drivetrain and had brakes. The gearing is low with a 36t chainring, which was nice for hills.
Your right. But I enjoy rambling.Good comments, but this has nothing to do with what the OP is asking.
The Sutra is a sweet bike for sure but doesn't have sliding dropouts or an EBB so you'll need to run a tensioner or use some other method of tensioning the chain.
The 700x45c tires are good sized but the frame will clear 2.1's if you want something bigger.
The chainstay length is like that because of this bikes intended purpose and won't be a drawback or affect your ability to run SS.
Alrighty then....I admitted fault and you continue to lecture me. Thanks.Well maybe going forward you can focus your comments in a way that contributes more to the topic at hand. This place is what it is (awesome resource) because of the individuals that share their experience.
