I bit the bullet and jumped on a 2015 brakeless 21" Barcode.



Not content with 13.75 slammed I gound the dropouts in to 13.5 and reshaped them so I wouldn't hang up on them.



I cut down my Thunderbolt crank spindle for ultimate Q-factor clearance.

^^^  New winner of the build-off here.

Seat nose could be rotated down about a half inch at that height, but other than that, this bike is perfect.

Does 28-10 slam the back wheel?

Does 28-10 slam the back wheel?

I'm running 30/10 and one half-link which slams on my '15 Barcode (13.75).  The sprocket is a little worn which helps out.  30/10 w a half link is equal to 28/10 for the most part. 

A few years ago I had a S&M made SFA which had a 13.75 slammed rear end.  I tried 30/10 and 28/10 but could not get it to work.  It was just too tight. I think the fact that the sprocket, cog, and chain were all new had something to do with it.  I ended up running it at 14".

The 2015 Barcode is a hair under 13.75.  If you sand away the paint in the drop out slots, and make sure your chain alignment is perfect, you should be able to get 13.75 even with a new drive line.

I'm running 30/9 with halflink chain on my 2014 Barcode. Its not complete slammed all the way, but its very close. 2.4" tires are very close to rubbing CS/SS.
