How do you like the 3T stem/handlebar set up? I'm leaning towards the same set up for my road bike.

I absolutely love your build by the way.

Posted almost 8 years ago

yourframeandfocus

yourframeandfocus says:

I absolutely love it man. 3T is THE best in my honest and personal opinion. Some people might say that these bars flex a lot, but I personally can't feel it. I mean I am super light weight rider and I lack upper body strength. So if you're just like me it will be perfect. Anyway I doubt any of that BS is true. Pros ride with these bars and they absolutely love them aswell and prefer them over the Team or LTD model.

And thanks a lot man, I just wish I had money for some Dura-Ace pedals, one of those new Fi'zi:k saddles, and fulll Rotor 3D+ drivetrain setup.

kylethornhill

kylethornhill says:

Thanks for the info. I'm not a big guy either. So I'm sure I wont be able to feel the bars flex if I tried.

I know around Sacramento and San Francisco we have bike swap meets all the time and if you have them around where you live you can come across parts at a really good price.

Thanks again for the info. Pretty sure I'll be picking up that stem/handlebar set up this weekend.

brembilla says:

Btw have you had experience with the normal GXP? TBH do you feel a real difference between your Hawk vs the Sram Team GXP?

Posted almost 8 years ago

yourframeandfocus

yourframeandfocus says:

Yeah. The stock GXP BB is shit in my opinion. It has WAY TOO MUCH drag. I haven't had any problems but that, but I have heard complaints from countless other people about how tjeu don't seem to last, how the bearings break, etc.

Hawk Racing uses stainless steel bearings, yet it spins extremely smooth. Smoother than a DA bb or even Hatta 9400. So now with having this BB you have a drivetrain set up that is still pretty much stiffer than anything else out there (besides Rotor 3D+) and yet spin with literally no drag.

Posted almost 8 years ago

khairi-omar

khairi-omar says:

Wow just what I needed; some feedback on the Hawks. I was contemplating on which BB I should upgrade to, and yes the stock gxps that come with the omniums are way draggy.

By any chance anyone chances upon this BB? http://youtu.be/sZzONMraBLY

Posted almost 8 years ago

brembilla

brembilla says:

Ceramic bearings have short lifespans. IMO I don't feel the new redesigned GXPs to have that bad drag tbh. I'll probably go to the Hawks once I feel that they'll be needed. Use ceramic only if you're using it for the track since it'll last you a decent amount of time there.

Posted almost 8 years ago

khairi-omar says:

That's what I get from my peers as well, and yes ive read on velospace that new gxps are much improved too. Shall KIV them Hawks :) Thanks

Posted almost 8 years ago

yourframeandfocus

yourframeandfocus says:

Well that's the thing. I haven't been training in a few weeks already on 51/16 just because they hurt.

Its not that bad, really like the gear ratio, I don't feel like I get tired on it, not even for climbing.

I'm trying to keep this bike as track only, only issue it that I haven't had money to build up a road bike. I don't really have a choice for now I ride training setup on the road and my track set up only at the velodrome.

brembilla

brembilla says:

Stiffest alu frame on the market? I think you forgot about customs like Tiemeyer. ;p
Unless you're so ridiculously strong that you can flex high end aluminum track frames, then I guess you wouldn't be able to tell though. However, you've got a sweet build. Planning on upgrading the bars?

Posted almost 8 years ago

yourframeandfocus

yourframeandfocus says:

I have never ridden a Tiemeyes but I have ridden other frames like the Bianchi Super Pista, Cinelli Mash, etc. and they all pretty much sick in stiffness. Number one being the Bianchi Super Pista; its super light weight and everything but the frame flexes on sprints so much. I don't think I'm going to upgrade my bars since I recently just upgraded to the 3T Ergonova Pro.

Posted almost 8 years ago

brembilla

brembilla says:

Oh yeah the T1 is on a diff level in comarison to the super pista. The Cinelli Mash isn't even designed for track so the lack of stiffness would make sense. Pretty sure the super pistas are made out of 6000 series alu as well. I just asked about the bars because I figured you wanted the stiffest out there. The ergonovas are plenty good though.

I'm using the 3T Ergonova Pro's, and I think they're one of the best drop bars I've ridden. I actually feel faster and more "agile" using these than, say, with the Deda Pista's I used to use. Very nice set up, by the way!

Posted over 8 years ago

yourframeandfocus

Best wheelset I have ever ridden. Good amount of depth; not too little, not too much. Super stiff and aero. You can feel the difference especially at higherspeeds and helps you maintain whatever speed you're at aswell as giving you a SUPER smooth ride. Built to last and super tough aswell. Thanks for the comment by the way, I'm loving this set up of mine. Its pretty much the best that ANY track bike can get.

I can see what you mean, but it doesn't really matter man. The rider is the one that matters not the bike. I don't care about weight like everybody else does, I only care about stiffness and aerodynamics. I can't wait to get the 3T drops though. I don't have money at the moment but when I do get money I'll be buying the Izumi V chain first.
