Is anybody running a 19 inch rear wheel on a unit triumph? If so, what hardtail section are you using? I'm looking at a bird 2 inch stretch 1 inch drop but don't know if I can fit a 19 inch wheel in that set up. any help would be awesome.

it's do-able but many times the seat bar has to be modified or moved up, here is what we did on this bike..http://i457.photobucket.com/albums/qq294/A1dunn/fendernotch.jpghttp://i457.photobucket.com/albums/qq294/A1dunn/fendermounted.jpg

awesome. Thanks Torch, I knew it was going to be tight, I just didnt know how much work would be involved. Im guessing a 18 inch rear wheel should fit fine without any modifications on the same frame set up?

I've got an 18 with fat Firestone 4.5 tire. No clearance problem with 4" stretch hardtail
