My motorcycling has taken more of my time these last few months and I am selling the T1 as either a complete or separately. In the next couple of days I'll be posting an ad for it in the Marketplace. Please direct all questions there when it is posted.

May I ask why you decided to go with carbon cranks? It seems like it would make sense to get stiffer cranks like Dura Ace, Rotor, or even Omniums, no?

MustangWolf says:

For my weight, they're plenty stiff. The benefit is they're pretty light—considering that they're a rotating mass. Not a fan of Omniums doe.

sublime says:

I suppose, but I'm a pretty small guy myself and I've managed to flex Carbon FSAs pretty easily. It really is personal preference though when you're at the quality level you're at now.

Which version of the FSA cranks do you have?

Posted over 6 years ago

sublime

sublime says:

I had FSA Carbon Track cranks until I switched to Omniums, and then to Dura Ace.

MustangWolf says:

There are two versions of the FSA carbon cranks—I have the newer version which aside form changing to a spider, FSA changed the internal aluminum skeleton of the crank arms giving the aluminum section more mass. This leads me to believe you had the first generation cranks which I've heard had more flex as well as issues with the chainring disc slipping.

sublime says:

That must've been it, but I have multiple friends who've switched to Omniums because of flexing, dunno if they were using 2nd or 1st gen though.

Is that bar height track legal? From the picture it doesn't seem like it clears the top of the wheel.

MustangWolf says:

The question you should be asking is if the bike is being used in any UCI events. Not every track enforces UCI rules if the event/race is not UCI sanctioned.

And yes, the bottoms of the bars exceed the tops of the tires—but I do not compete (currently) in Category races at Hellyer (which incidentally does not have strict observation of UCI specs regarding track bikes). But you knew that already, right?

Your drops reach past the top of your tire...

I've only been to a few of Hellyer's Saturday novice sessions where UCI regulations aren't strictly if at all enforced. I was unaware that this observation caries over to the actual race nights.

I only picked up these bars last week, so the problem only arose recently.

I was interested racing next season and am aware my current setup is not UCI legal. I noticed this bike had more or less the same issue as my bike. I was curious if this had caused any problems so far since I assumed this bike saw frequent track time.

I haven't had time to take this bike to Hellyer since my dog bit it jumping out the window recently and had surgery.

Some things go unnoticed at Hellyer, and some things do on race nights/days.

How's that low drop feel for you? I'm raising my bars by a a 10mm spacer since I cut the fork for that kind of allowance and my flexibility isn't quite there yet.

Gabuyo says:

For me, it's tolerable, but I've only had them for a short period of time, so there isn't a lot of experience to gauge their comfort on.

I'm probably getting rid of them for a shallower bar though since I can't raise the bar any higher or the stem goes past minimum insertion. This way I don't have to worry about UCI problems and what not.
