How did you get the tape to curve like that on the HED3? And what type of tape did you use?

Thanks Thomas! I have a couple of different sizes and looking to switch it out for my 90mm 3T stem. BTW I am loving your Felt collection you have there.

Unclip

Unclip says:

Yea dude! For some reason, I knew you had that Cinelli, but I never saw this even though it looks like you have had it for a while! and Thanks! I really love felt for what ever reason. I'm trying to get my hands on a Felt cx bike or a mtb. But my focus is still on upgrading my road bike, mainly because the only thing I own on that bike is the Frame/Fork and cockpit. After I crashed, everyone loaned me extra parts they had haha. :D

And, I recently purchase some Reynolds DV46 tubular road wheels for racing. I have to get a new rear hub for the wheels because of the campy freehub body.

What do you prefer between your 3T and Deda bars?

Posted almost 10 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

3T road drops without a doubt!.. way more comfortable and just look sweet on any build.

Posted almost 10 years ago

BRNDNLPZ

BRNDNLPZ says:

I'm looking at both of those bars and heard good and bad about the Ergonova's, so that's why I ask. I heard they hurt your hands a bit?

Posted almost 10 years ago

BRNDNLPZ

BRNDNLPZ says:

Do you get good leverage when climbing hills?

Posted almost 10 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

Deda drops actually hurt and honestly sucked on long rides. I haven't had any problems at all with my Ergonovas and feel great.... as for climbing hills I would for sure go with the Ergonovas.

Posted almost 10 years ago

brembilla

brembilla says:

Road drops vs track drops. Road drops will always be the choice for street riding, and even for track riding for some people. They just give more hand positions, their drop isn't as deep, and they always have a more ergonomic fit. The ergonova's are great though. I see more people with these bars on their roadies than any other bar.

Dude! Yours is clean man! Really diggin' the HED in the front. My brother (Silver_Soul) just picked up a 2007 as well and he's got the classic look going on with Mavic MA40's laced to Sheriff hubs, I believe. The white concepts are dope!

Posted over 10 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

Thanks! I appreciate it. I LOVE bianchi pista concepts in celeste, pearl white, and in black. They are just great looking frames. for my build I decided to go with black parts, because I think it makes the frame stand out.

Hey do you like the HED or the aerospoke more? thanks

btw Great Concept i like the color scheme!

Posted over 10 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

I like both. The Aerospoke is heavier, but can take a beating on the street. The HED3 is very light and very fast. I pick up my speed faster with the HED3. Overall both are great wheels and I've had great rides with them. I am actually looking to sell my Aerospoke now because I am saving up for another build.


Thanks I appreciate it :]

Did you ever sell the hed3?

The wheelset is awesome!

Posted over 10 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

I found a 2009 Cinelli Vigorelli for sale on craigslist which I was thinking of picking up, but the guy hasn't gotten back to me yet. How much did you spend building up your wheelset?

Posted over 10 years ago

TRACKER

TRACKER says:

The vigorelli would look nice with all silver parts. The hubs were $$ but can't remember exactly how much. I got the rims for $110 (both) and then $1 for each spoke. I'll check on how much the hubs cost me but dam it was worth it they're so smooth. The wheelset weights the same as my Reynolds.

Posted over 10 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

Yea If I get it I am not going to use black components and silver parts are what I had in mind ;D.... I love your wheelset and I want to build one identical to yours for my concept. They seem very stiff.

Posted over 10 years ago

M-DOGG

M-DOGG says:

yeah dude it's an 07! had to get a seatpost clamp crack fixed so the seatpost area looks a little different now but it's in perfect shape otherwise. Debating whether to pull the trigger on the front aerospace - always wanted one but ppl hate on em so much these days. U like it?

*aerospoke - BTW nice paint job on yours!

Posted over 10 years ago

Sad to hear about the crack, but glad u got it fixed. I think you should go for it man and try it out for yourself to see if its a fit for u. I personally ignored the hate and went for it because I wanted to try it out and I really like it because it is strong and can take a beating on the streets. And thanks! i got it cheap on craigslist and ended up painting it and added both decals so it looks new lol.

hmmm... Steelman makes really, really cool steel frames, and they're in Redwood city! http://steelmancycles.com/tig_frames.html Only problem is frames are very expensive!

wow steelman cycles are amazing! I would love one lol.. I was really into getting a bridgestone or bianchi pista steel frame

Posted almost 11 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

a Bridgestone would be pretty cool, and easy to find in 52/53cm... but NJS frames are pretty inflated right now. and yeah, those Steelman bikes are sooo nice, I'd love a tig-welded Steelman with a sloping top tube and a triple triangle. So pricey though...

Posted almost 11 years ago

If you get a new frame, are you going to transfer your parts from this bike or get new ones?

that was actually my bianchi pista on cl not long ago. it was technically a 55cm, but the bb was stamped "56" for whatever reason. it could've been yours!

I think I saw your HED 3 for sale on craigslist. Also, when are you going to put your B43 on?? I really want to see it!

Posted almost 11 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

yea i was going to keep it for my next build but need the money.. oh and my buddy letting me barrow his chainwhip to remove cog from my velocity deep v to the b43.. Ill try and get it done soon to get pics up :)

Posted almost 11 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

I can't wait to see it! Also, (you may know this already) You should tighten your cog more than your lockring because if your cog isn't tight enough, it will unthread slightly (when you skid stop or resist crank movement) and press against the lockring. I didn't tighten the cog on my B43 enough and it got stuck against the lockring, it was a real bitch to remove!

Posted almost 11 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

Thanks I appreciate the help I actually wasn't aware of that. Ill make sure i tighten my cog good enough then. How do you like your b43s?

Posted almost 11 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

They're definitely bomb-proof and look great. I once tried using a brake with the front B43 and it made a terrible and noisy death-squeal whenever I braked. So then I ran my Shamal up front and my B43 as a drive wheel. The B43 really does its best as a drive wheel. I eventually switched it out for my FiR to Miche because it was a bit too heavy for my already-heavy GTB. So yeah, it's a great wheel, but a bit too heavy (since your concept is really light, the weight of the B43 really shouldn't be a problem). I was thinking about selling the set, but now I'm having some doubts...

Posted almost 11 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

Oh I see. Yea, I noticed it was a bit heavier but seem really strong compared to my velocity deep v. I personally like the way your b43s look on your GTB.

Posted almost 11 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

thanks. I like it too, but I think I like the FiR's a little bit more. Maybe I could save up for a SRAM S80 front wheel or something deeper than the FiR's.

a SRAM S80 would be really nice on your GTB

Posted about 11 years ago

I love my aerospoke lol.. Both aerospoke or hed 3 are great but depends what type of riding your doing. Street? or Track?

Posted about 11 years ago

Street

Posted about 11 years ago

PandaBear says:

I recommend the Aerospoke then, because they are a lot stronger and can take a beating on the street.
