that's my 10 word 853 Inbred review
Chainsuck? What are the issues with it? Or just on your recent purchase?
On mine, and on many others especially I think the 853 geared and some of the cromo (DN6 is it?) Inbreds with (too) little chainstay clearance. Not a problem really - though previous damage was very evident on the frame when I bought it - as I think I can fine tune the chainline out to the right by 1 or 1.5mm, I've made a heavy duty chainstay protector and am looking into anti-chainsuck devices as a last resort.
Neg over, I love mine... read up a lot in terms of travel/stem set-up (along with snapped chainstays and praise/diss for Brant) and felt at home on it straight away
and it's a really nice colour!
