Of course BB height will be affected by the choice of tires. I presume framebuilders make assumptions about the tire size to be used, presumably the same assumptions used to set the fork and rear bridge clearances.

typically, all measurements on a bicycle are center

it is assembled will not always replicate the 2D ones
that were in the frame blueprint. oh - and i wouldn't trust
any imperial dimensions. the tea party thing, and all that...

I have been measuring from the ground to the bottom of the bottom bracket shell. It now occurs to me that perhaps I should be measuring to the center of the axle. Hopefully this will engender less heat than the chainstay discussion.
