just wondering i really like affinitys new black chrome lo pro but how does it feel with drops? ive heard a few people saying it will be a very uncomfortable ride if i dont go for pursuit bars. i really prefer drops to any other kind of bars

StevenPreusser says:

Well it was a stiff frame, being steel. And the angle is pretty sweet. It's pretty uncomfortable at first but you get used to it. Plus it only starts to hurt really at like 10 miles in so it depends in how far you're riding.

I have an Affinity chainring in the mail, I am wondering if I made the right decision? Have you ever ridden an FSA Track Pro Chainring before? Is the Affinity Chainring just as good, what do you think of it? Please helllllp haha

I have zero complaints. It feels strong and light. Of course it's not the lightest chain ring on the market but it's a good value for the money I feel.

Im not worried about it being heavy, in fact thats what I wanted something strong and stiff. Replacing it with the cheap chainring on my Eighthinch Courier Crankset, so regardless it will be an upgrade :). Thanks for the feedback!

I really love your wheels. I want some of those for training. This is a proper low-pro build. Looks nice and thank god you have proper saddle angle. I always see people with this bike and their saddles are angled up or down :( nice!

Thank you! I've loved every minute of these wheels. I've always wanted some Shamals or Reynolds but I'm not making that kind of money haha.

Yea, they can get pretty pricey. I got mine from a friend for less than I would have paid for just the hubs alone! Its really cool that you got clipless pedals. I got mine and have never gone back. If you want to spend some money on shoes, You can go with Bonts or SIDIs or Giro. I ride with Bonts and they are by far the best shoe you can buy hands down. They're unbelievably stiff, and you can get them molded to your feet so that they fit exactly. If your not up to spending lots of money, you can get northwave or some cheep shimano shoes. Good luck finding shoes! :)

Yeah man! I'm excited for clipless. They came with 4.5 degree cleats. My friend rides the streets with 0 degree but wouldnt that make it easier to clip out? When you ride street what would you recommend? I've been looking into mavic shoes and sidi. But the local bike shops around all carry Shimano so I feel like at least then I'd be able to see what I'm buying before the purchase.

Unclip says:

Ok, 0 degree doesnt make it easier to clip out. The reason why companies developed cleats with float is because not everyone has a perfect pedal stroke. If you use 0 degree cleats, your feet wont have any room to move around, so if you do not have a perfect pedal stroke, you can do damage to your knees. 4.5 degree float allows your feet to move a little. I use 4.5 and I love it. Another thing, Pedals have a pedal tension adjuster on them. You can adjust it to make it easier, or harder to unclip. I usually run really high tension (hard to unclip). When I go to the track, I use max tension so I never come out. (and when I race, I use straps too) . SIDIs are one of the best shoes. Bont are the best like I said before. My friend has the Mavic shoes and he likes them a lot. Hope this helps

I just figured I was for comfort not for the pedal stroke.. That makes a lot more sense. Thanks for all of the advice dude, really. It's helped out a lot! I suppose I'll go look at reviews and super interesting stuff like that. I think I'll probably go mavic. And then sidi in the future. I'll try the 4.5 degree for a while before I decide to try 0. Thanks again!
