- Jan 7, 2010Yea, I changed my wife's Big Dummy from an 18 to a 16 at the last minute. That turned out to be a mistake. The stokemonkey fits, but not like it really should. I paid a shop to do it, but had to re-do all of their work when I got it home so I felt the full pain of fitting it in there.
I am sure my wife appreciates the slightly lower standover, but I would definitely buy the 18 if I were doing it over.

I've got one of the tightest fits of stokemonkey to bike frame. I put a
stokemonkey on a 16" Surly Instigator frame. There are literally 2-3 mm
to spare on all three sides and between chain and frame. The only way
to make it fit was to put tongue of the free-radical below the chain
stays, not above.
