Crankset/Bottom Bracket:

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Surly 18t cog, Sugino 75 46t chainring, KMC 710SL chain

Handlebars/Stem:
3TTT Forma SL bars, 3TTT Pro Light titanium stem

Saddle/Seatpost:
Selle Italia Flite saddle, American Classic titanium seatpost

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Velocity Deep V laced to a Paul hub

Awesome ride! How do those Paul hubs compare to Phils?

They're a bit lighter, but I don't notice a difference when I'm riding at all. Both are excellent choices.

how does thing ride with the aluminum fork?

Posted over 5 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

It rides pretty nicely. The ride isn't very stiff for an aluminum frame/fork, much less stiff than the Cannondales or Fuji Track Pro or the Tiemeyer.

I didn't realize I misspelled your name, sorry! I was wondering how do these ride in terms of long rides? I have yet to try an aluminum frame.

Posted almost 6 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

No problem! The Pulse specifically is fine for me on longer rides, often I'll ride it sixty miles in a day. Other aluminum frames like my Fuji, Cannondales, and the Tiemeyer are significantly stiffer and not as comfortable on longer rides.

Are you running a 3/32 set up? How does the Pulse compare to the Cannondale Track you had before? I agree with your description of how the Pulse feels precisely. Glad you're enjoying the bike.

Posted almost 6 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

Nope, it's all 1/8". I found the Cannondale to be stiffer and felt like I could accelerate a bit faster on it, but it was just so stiff that it would beat me up on long rides.

The Pulse I find to be a lot more comfortable and still pretty quick.

Love these GT's, great build! I'm thinking of picking up some Dura-ace 7600's, whats your BB spindle length? I have a 102mm ISO, so I was wondering if that would be fine.

Would 102 be too small?

Coomer

Coomer says:

Yeah, 102 would probably be too small. I think the chainring would hit the chainstay.
