Did you have any trouble fitting the 50t chainring? I have a 47t record pista on my Gazzetta and there doesnt look like I have the chainring clearance for something much larger

thank you! still to this day, when i mount it and ride away, even when i'm exhausted or tired, it puts a smile on my face, and all the negativity goes away. sounds sappy, but it's real talk!

Just curious.. How tight are the clearances between your crankarms and chainstays? On my Gazzetta, it's super close, but thankfully the frame and S75's stiffness prevent any issues!

it's approximately 4mm. it IS super close. definitely forced me to train to keep a cadence up in proper pedaling position. if not, then the inside of my heels hit the chainstays. but proper form and technique is what i strive for and definitely maximizing on the use of the bike. i was initially going to put 165 Omniums on it. thank the lord for them not fitting. i'm more then pleased to have the S75s. i'm planning on jumping to a 53T Zen ring soon. i'm spinning out on 48s x)

happy riding!!!! love your bike!

Ah, thanks for the info. Good to know it's not just my frame. I think you'll really enjoy 53x19. That's a great all 'round ratio. Cheers.

Nice bike! Might sound odd, but how tall are you? I'm 5'10 and wondering if I should go for the 56 or the 54.

thank you! not an odd question at all. you can be 5.10 and have short legs. i am 5.8 and am equally lengthy both legs and torso, that's how i was able to ride 54 with the top tube at my crotch when standing over. my inseam is 30inches. so it's all relative. i do NOT trick with this bike at all, just commuting and mashing. if you were to trick get a smaller bike so you don't EFF yourself where it hurts. OUCH! i know people who are 5.9-5.10 who ride 54 because they feel safer. they also have 32inseam so their crotch sits 2inches higher when standing over at the top tube. i ride the 54 for cadence reasons as well. if i had gotten a 52 then my seat adjustment would've changed and also my bar height and i didn't want that. i wanted to be slammed at the stem and keep my cadence up. depending on whether you're going to ride drops and such makes a difference in how you FIT on the bike regarding frame size as well. best thing to do is to get fitted at your reputable bike shop on a bike similar to what you want to build before making any big investments. thanks for the reply! i love the frame, super stiff, all the components make it even stiffer. i ride very hard and am hard on my bike in general and it has kept up very nicely through the beating. i love my bike!!!!

what saddle do you recommend? i really love how this one feels. the suede is a nice touch! :) very comfortable.

A race saddle would look more aggressive, they are generally still pretty comfortable if you get a good one, but they can be pricey, the one i have is $200.00.

i got the concor for the kind of riding i am doing, it is a street bike for chicago and i wanted to be able to have a durable bike and high in comfort. when i put drops on it i put a different saddle on. but omg is the concor super comfy and doesn't fade my jeans much xD. thanks for checking it out!
