It's identical to what I have on my cyclocross bike from running too wide tires, except my rub damage is to aluminum. Since you already checked the skewers, check the dish of the wheel to see how close its coming to the chainstay, also check if there is play in the axle/hub, that may cause extra flex. A lot of power can cause frame flex and tire contact. ...

It looks like the tyre has rubbed due to the wheel being pulled over,this is caused if the skewers were not tight enough.recentre the wheel and re tighten the quick release skewers

I've ended up with similar marks on some of my bikes that have tight tolerances for tires. Often I have found that the tire itself doesn't rub, but some of the sprues do. My fat bike in particular has a very tight rear triangle, and even with a properly dished wheel, I have to remove the sprues. As to the danger, you'd have to look very closely and feel ...

Running suspension with narrow tyres is a fool's game: the store is trying to chump you. How far a tyre pressure decrease will take you depends on your weight. To be honest, the BadBoy is just a design driven by marketing. It's aimed at people scared to ride drop bar bikes who still want to go fast and imagine thin tyres will help them do that... In fact ...

Wider tires are the first thing to try. The BadBoys are basically rigid mountain bikes with 622mm wheels and narrow tires, so you could also put on mountain bike sized wheels and very wide tires. With a second set of wheels, it's easy to change between road and off-road riding. About suspension forks, with current geometry there isn't much room for the ...

A derailleur (or pulley-type chain tensioner) can't be used with coaster brakes. You also have vertical dropouts, so if you want to run something without a derailleur, you need an eccentric hub (which I don't think exists with a coaster brake -- the only one I'm aware of is the White Industries Eno) or eccentric bottom bracket (Phil Wood makes some). You ...
