    The reported bottom bracket height for all sizes is 292mm from a 64mm bottom bracket drop. Given my calculation, this would assume 3.48″ of tire from the ERD of a 26″ rim. The website reports that the bike is designed around 2.8″, but could fit 3″ tires. What’s up with the discrepancy?

    BB height to 26″ rim ERD w/ no tire: (559 / 2) – 64 = 215.5mm
    Reported bb height: 292mm
    Tire height from reported bb height: 292 – 215.5 = 76.5mm = 3.48″

    BB height w/ 2.8″ tall (61.6mm) tire: 215.5 + 61.6 = 277.1mm
    BB height w/ 3″ tall (66mm) tire: 215.5 + 66 = 281.5mm

    Wow nevermind all that. I was converting inches to millimeters wrong. It’s based on a 3″ tire. *pats self on back*
