chainstays are crazy short, and because of that, crazy close to the chainring and crankarm! made me nevervous after the build up, but todd (ingermanson, the builder) assured me it wont be a problem. the tradeoff is this thing handles like a dream, especially for a 29er! it really flies in the tight twisty stuff!
the swinger drops have been perfect...i'm at least 240lbs...and standing up pounding on the pedals on steep ups i have never felt even a hint of slippage!
you are right, i was in a hurry and i was measuring the first bolt on the swinger. the second bolt is actually the axle hub. so....measuring carefully, and to the actual center of axle hub this time.....16" - 16.75"
