Its about time I get a new frame and I’m liking just about everything about the Kink Williams frame, I’m just a little worried I’ll bump my heels on the pegs with 12.75” chainstay. So I’m curious on how far back the wheel will go in the dropout, and also if the slightly higher bottom bracket height will help remedy this issue?

Cheers guys

I went with 160mm cranks, because of my heals catching on the pegs. Size 12 shoes.

Depends on your shoe size. I'm size 11.5 and my flatland cs is 12.65 and my heel hits the pegs. What I do is ride with foot further forward on the pedals and that helps.. but it's not too bad since I spend more time on the pegs than the pedals anyways. On my street bike I go pegless so it's a non issue.

Im 1.69m i run the bsd alvx 20.6 with 12.5 cs and 165 cranks. Im 12 shoe size (vans)
And i added 4 pegs latley but it took about 2 days to get used the heel touching the peg.. i guess your body just takes a bit time to learn how to get used to it and now it doesnt bother me at all

Btw i really think geometry, sizes etc has huge effect on riding and the first riding i pression needs to be good but really it takes few days to get used to everything.. i dont say geometry isnt important but you can do everything on everything with just a lil bit of used to it

In the future i will get 160 crancks probably but just know that you can do it

13.000000 and not further, generally frames offer 0.5” of adjustability (BSD, WTP.....) so when I saw 12.75” I thinker I would be able to ride my wheel at 13.15” w/ 28x9 easy but no, so I ran 13.0” w/ my 27t (25t same lenghts) and it was okay but I never were truly comfy on this frame because of that, otherwise it’s a great frame, just be aware of that.

I wish the Alvx had a 11.5 bbh that'd be my new frame.

Standover to high, Csl not what I'm after. Really into the yolk on the Alvx. I wish more companies started to do this.

I run 12.75 backend with 165mm cranks, size 13 vans and 4 pegs. Ive hit my heel once on my back peg and that was in the first 3 days on the new frame getting used to a short backend.

I reckon they’re going to start getting longer again. Ethan Corriere’s new sig frame is 13.4 slammed. I’ve noticed other street riders that have said they’re running their back ends a bit longer these days too.

Don’t put 25.4 bars in a 22.2 stem.

and matt nordstrom's new fit frame has two options regarding back end length. it does seem like back ends are getting a bit longer again. i do say this when the new fit shortcut frame has a 12.4'' back end haha.

12.4?? That’s just ridiculous. May as well just get a unicycle.
