Test-fitting the rear triangle

Seatstay mockup, #1

Another frame lumbers slowly towards completion. This one is yet another 650b randonneuse/‌cargobike/‌commuter/‌gravel/‌etc frame which I’m going to try to make fit 42mm tires (not that I plan to use them; I just want to see if I can properly crimp the chainstays to give me closer to 50mm spacing where the tires are), make it as light as I can (I’m using one of my hoarded True Temper OX-P downtubes, and every other tube has been weighed to make certain it’s the lightest one I’ve got), and have provisions for a fly-by-wire drivetrain.

I could make it lighter if I didn’t use a hellenic triple triangle, but I really like the looks of them so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
