Lose those toe clips and level out those bars and you got yourself a alright build.

Van1ty says:

Though the bars may look like they're pointing downwards for show, that really is its most comfortable angle for me.

And I don't think I can go clipless cause I like wearing normal shoes to walk around when I get off my bike in the city. Haha.

But the gold decals on black paint is a rare color combo though.

I'm glad you didn't go Mash either.. don't get me wrong, they're nice bikes but I've seen enough of them. it's nice to see people take chances with other bike brands and end up loving them to death.
btw nice wheels.
what's the difference between the "Campagnolo Vento" & the "shimmals"? they seem the same (but that could just be my wheel ignorence) just wondering...

Posted almost 2 years ago

Van1ty says:

Thanks! The differences I know of is the Vento has 16 spokes while the Shamal has 12. The Vento uses a Chorus hub, while the Shamal uses a Record hub. All in all, it's about 100g difference. I got all my info from this URL: http://www.campyonly.com/techtalk/techt...

Like it, the geometry is so compact on this frame and the shamal are perfect on this build !

Van1ty says:

Thanks. It's a Vento actually. I wish it was a Shamal. Clincher Shamals are so hard to find. And when they're available, they're way too expensive.

LeoYunta says:

You're right, they look so close! Anyway nice build :) How do you like the Sugino Zen ?

Posted almost 2 years ago

Van1ty

Van1ty says:

Yeah. Shamals are 12-spoke, while Ventos are 16-spoke. So in theory, Ventos are better for the street. The Zen chainring is crazy light. I had a DuraAce chainring to compare weights, and the Zen was actually slightly lighter, even though it looked beefier. I also love how it's so shiny. I actually picked it up at a bike jumble for only $60!

this thing was done so right bro! hows toeclip overlap? pretty tight

Posted almost 2 years ago

Van1ty

Van1ty says:

Thanks man. Yeah, toe overlap is present, but I think the photos make it look worse than it actually is. It scrapes the tip of the tip of the toe cage slightly.

I have girly legs. Don't think I can handle the mashing. Haha. Plus I live near hilly areas. Wouldn't make it halfway up with that ratio.
