Hi all ; I wonder if I can get some help
I have just bought this frame . It has 130mm rear drop outs ,,
Although I can fit a wheel with a 10 speed cassette in the drop outs I don't think there is enough room for the chain on the lowest gear.
Please can someone tell me what gears I should be running on this frame ...
Much Much thanks ...
1st post please be easy on me :)

Hi, welcome

Congrats with your purchase

I would try it. Maybe you're lucky?

I would think that if your cassette is too close to the frame, the body is not for the cassette width you using. Normally a 130mm spacing frame should be able to take a 10s cassette.

A pictures worth a thousand words .....
Does this look reasonable ?
I don't have a 10 speed chain to hand but a 1/8 chain touches the seat stays :(

slacken off the bolt at the rear of the dropout that centres the wheel. This will allow the axle to move backward giving a little more clearance. 130mm dropout width should allow a 10 speed cassette to work. My colnago dream is 130mm and running 10 speed cassettes without a problem.

A 1/8" is at least a millimeter wider than a 10-speed chain. I'd be surprised if it DIDN'T touch the seatstays.

Get back to us when you've tried the right chain.

The size of the smallest sprocket is important too - some frames don't like 11-tooth sprockets. Remove the drop-out adjusters if you need it to go back further.

b12b12 has acknowledged other replies, but this is perhaps the best one so far. If you do not use an appropriate chain, you are almost guaranteed to have it touch the frame.
