#!markdown As an aside, Knolly essentially was making a "Super Boost Plus" bike in 2003. Aside from the rear spoke flange spacing (the 150mm hubs of the day were spaced such that spoke tension was even since stiffness wasn't an issue with 26″ wheels and Mavic 729 or 721 rims) the first generation V-Tach frames used a 150mm rear hub with a 73mm BB shell. If you had a Chris King hub and RaceFace 24mm crankset on your 2003 Knolly for the price of a PF92 BB and an axle kit you could put them on a Pivot Switchblade today. The frames cleared a 26″ x 3″ tire out back and the adjustable chainstays had a short position of 432mm. For optimum chainline with a single ring you could run your middle ring in the out ring position on the crankset and essentially match what Pivot is doing here.
