    How much clearance do you have between the tire and the swingarm/shock mount?

    Be aware that as RPMs increase, tire diameter increases... by as much as 1/2-3/4"

    It is at least 2" clearance.
    I would never thought it could expand so much. Made 1cm gap on my previous builds rear wheel and it is fine. Firestone champion de luxe tire. I was afraid it would Touch The fender at some speed tho, but it never did.
    Thanks.

    I think my trials bike has a better seat :|
    Gotta ask: why do you guys want to be forced way forward on the bike like that?
    If your ass can't slide back to at least a point above the rear axle you're too far forward!

    I hope you don't mind if I disagree with you on this, but, that is pretty much a BS statement. Being able to be above the rear axle is only needed sometimes on some bikes. I always prefer to have a more forward riding position as I like to make sure I have weight on the front wheel. I was able to put my weight above the rear axle on my CB350 race bike and I went with a shorter tank so I could move forward more. The front end was too light for me and I felt like it was pushing in some corners.
    Seating is always about the relationship between bars, pegs and seat. In roadracing it is also about getting your weight where you want it.
    I have never ridden trials, but I rode a TL250 in a gravel pit once. Therefore, I know nothing productive about it. I can only imagine, after watching it and it is cool and way beyond my skill set. that you would have to be able to get your body weight way back in order to get the front wheel up and where you want it.

    No mind at all, everybody rides their own ride and to their own level.
    Yes, riding a motorcycle involves front to rear balance as well as side to side, trials riding teaches you that, you have to be able to shift your weight on the bike to suit the situation,
    trials riders and road racers move around all over the bike, if he gets back at any point in time his balls are going to be traction.
    Wouldn't even make it past tech inspection in a dirt bike event. From a street bike comfort or function standpoint it is also not a great concept.

    If it's just a visual style thing :/ well I guess that's good enough to ride, but it would still be a prick just to get it in and out of my driveway on a nice day.
