I tried pushing it, running a 28/9. Sooooo close. So I got the 3mm spacers putting the backend at 13.768, and Iím ok with.

13.768" is right, 13.65" + 3mm

Your wheel *looks* centered in your bike check, did you manage to get it all working OK?

Itís off, the picture doesnít quite do it justice. And I will eventually have brakes on it, I wish it was centered. And before I bought those spacers, it was fucking hell even getting it slightly straight. It would just pull extremely hard to the right. Iím ok, itís a nice frame and faster geo than my SFA.

Sounds like the wheel is dished one side. I only say that because that happened to me. I had a new wheel built and even though the thing was pin straight, it still pulled to the right every time I tightened the bolts no matter how hard I tried to keep it center. Brought it back to the shop and had them fix it and it sits perfect now every time.

and could be much more likely to be dished to the side if you have uneven flanges and an inexperienced wheel builder

back on topic tho, its cool to see fit doing a re-pop of these frames. brings back the nostalgia. actually just watched mikey's part in Anthem 2 last night!

Fit is actually raffling off the bike Mike used in Anthem II, each time you buy an aitken sticker sheet, you get one ticket.

I hope they do more Aitken stuff in the future. Like re-release his signature Trans-Am shirt he had back in like 2003.
