Sup guys! I am still continuing my search for a new frame (I decided not to go with the Villicus frame) and came across a brand new Volume Union Toronto frame in 21TT. I haven't found much info about the frame and would appreciate it if you guys would let me know if it's a good buy or not.

I have nothing smart to say about this but for some reason I absolutely love the colour.

Yeah man I think it looks real good. Do you think it would go good with blue/black parts?

They're good frames but made in 2007. So they won't have huge tire clearance i believe i could get a 2.1 in mine. 74.5 ht and 13.75 rear is all I remember geo wise.

Alright. I'm checking with the buyer and having him measure the dropouts since I run a 2.4 tire.

I think Volume frames are nice. Its an older frame but still very good quality. I hope I don't snap this one haha.

It turns out it is from 07. Still gonna buy it, Volume frames are legit.

99% positive a 2.4 tire will not fit

12 year old frame with 12 year old geometry..

Also, my experience with an older Volume (Drifter) was that the dimensions of the frame were far off from advertised. 21.1" TT felt substaintially shorter than my previous 21" frames, 13.5" CS required substantially less chain links than my previous 13.5" CS frame..

Maybe mine was built wrong or it was a fluke, but I definitely did not like it.


That said, it's a cool looking frame. Would be cool to build a color scheme off of. I personally would go for something more modern for my daily shredder.

I was planning to go with a newer frame, but I decided to give it go because I trust Volume frames and could get this one cheap that I really liked. I just need the frame itself to be strong and hold up.

I love the Blue and Yellow combo idea. It's the Buffalo Sabres colors. And a rival team of the Toronto Maple Leafs. DO IT!

Hey, I'm trying!

You'll need new tires then lol

The guy I bought it from said a 2.2 tire fit slammed. He said as soon as you pull the wheel back a little it opens up. So I think a 2.4 should fit, at least I hope so!

Animal makes a really nice 2.3.

This was with the 2.2 tire he fitted. You really don't think a 2.4 will fit? Even if the axle is pulled back a little?

I’m going with no, a 2.4 is not going to fit after looking at that picture. It appears like the tire clearance with that 2.2 is too tight for me. A slightly bent rim and your out of commission.

Ok. Both those pictures were the axle slammed. If you want to see what it looks like with the axle pulled back a little bit I will post them.

|

10/4/2018 6:21 PM

Yeah 2.4 will not fit.

|

10/4/2018 6:38 PM

What size would you recommend then?

|

10/4/2018 6:39 PM

If your running brakes 2.1 max

|

10/4/2018 6:52 PM

No need for a big rear tire anyways. Stick a 2.1 on there and take satisfaction in the fact that you're saving weight

Thank you all for the input. I emailed Volume and asked them if they had any clue as to the tire size the frame will accommodate. I run an Eastern frame and a 2.4 barely fits in it, but I opened up the axle a little and it's been fine for almost a year. I will wait for a response back from them, in the meantime thank you all for the help!

Honestly man, that’s what I would have done. I didn’t have the money and I decided to buy the frame. I’ve always liked the colorway and the reliability of older Volume frames. It’s funny that people are saying I need to run a 2.1 when that guy was able to fit a 2.2 with ease. I’ll jist wait until the frame comes in and order tires based on what I think the dropouts can fit.

How much did you pay for it? That may help decide if it was worth it lol
