Was a fantastic build, perfect in everyway. I'm sure you'll be bringing some fire with your next ride. You guys aren't messing with Leader anymore huh?

Beautiful build man... Looking to upgrade my frameset (currently riding a Fuji Track Classic). Love the Thunderdome but am a little hesitant to move to aluminum due to everything I've read about the harshness of the ride. How does it compare to say your Bareknuckle? (Realize geo has probably as much if not more effect but...)

Thanks, man. The Thunderdome rides exceptionally smooth for an aluminum frame. It's seriously one of the nicest riding bikes I've ever owned.

So not super harsh compared to the Bareknuckle?

Scrodzilla says:

Not at all. Most of the "harshness" people talk about is just bullshit. Use a good 25-28c tire in the rear and it greatly improves the ride quality.

To all those who think EAI cogs aren't compatible with Phil Wood hubs - it's bullshit.

So what's the story with eai cog compatability with phil wood hubs?

Posted 10 months ago

Scrodzilla

Scrodzilla says:

You mean all the bullshit on the internet about how they're not compatible? It's just that - bullshit. I've been using EAI cogs on Phil hubs for years without any issues.

What's the spindle lengthof your phil wood bb?

bruncaza says:

Thanks, one more question. You have 109mm protype BB + SG75 cranks in your barecknuckle, 108mm PW BB +SG75 cranks in your Thunderdrome and you also sell 109mm tange-seiki BB at retro-gression. Which one (BB+SG75 cranks combo) do you like the most?

Posted 10 months ago

Scrodzilla

Scrodzilla says:

Retrogression stopped carrying the Protype BB because I found too many inconsistencies in the quality of the spindles. The Tange 109mm ISO BB is much nicer and has smoother bearings. The Phil Wood surpasses them all in overall quality (as expected).

The Thunderdome doesn't get the love it deserves. This is too good!

This is a really nice looking build. I'm looking to build up my next bike and was just considering the Thunderdome. I kind of like the more modest tubeset vs some of the aero or hydroformed stuff. How does this compare to a leader? Figured I'd ask you cause all I know is an old conversion that's falling apart.

Scrodzilla says:

I'm a big fan of the round tubing too and feel the Thunderdome is greatly overlooked when it comes to quality aluminum frames. This frame is a whole pound lighter than a 55cm Leader 725 frame and 7000-series aluminum does ride much nicer than 6000-series.

Oh man, that sounds like the ticket. Thanks very much.
