Why are you going to sell it?

justskidding says:

I'm just not feeling it. It rides great, but idk... I'm still gonna keep it for a few more months though. I put more miles on this in about 1 or 2 months then I did on the IRO in 6 months.

Nice Build!! keep up the good work. kinda looks like my old frame. sold it to a guy in your area who also had a friend with the same macaframa bike.

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

That's probably me. I believe you were building up a MASH at the time and you needed money which is why you were selling it.

Jawknee says:

justskidding says:

Glad you like it! Thanks a lot for the frame man, I'm loving it! And forsure man if I am ever in the your area I'd be down to ride. You live in Cupertino, right?

were you biking up highway 1 without brakes? what was that like?

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

Nah, went around through a trail that leads us there. It was about 20 miles to get there. It was super fun though.

That's awesome! Did you take Old La Honda then La Honda? Or something else?

To be honest, I'm not sure. I hadn't gone through that route before so I just followed my friends haha.

Do you wanna go riding sometime? I'd love to see your Concept in person. I'm in Menlo Park btw

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

That'd be awesome. Dang, that's a bit far haha. I'm in Salinas (right next to Monterey).

Posted about 12 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

Oof, Salinas is kind of far away. Well, if you're in my area any time soon, hit me up and we can go riding :)

Definitely. I might get those rb021s from you. Btw, how tall are you? You look like a giant .___.

I'm 6'4'! So yep, I'm a giant!

Posted about 12 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

Sure turned out great! Are you interested in some Nitto RB-021's? I've got some silver 38cm ones. I think I'm near you since I saw this frame when it was originally for sale on cl!

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding says:

Would you trade for some purple andonized b123s?

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

And thanks!

Posted about 12 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

sorry for the late response, I didn't see that you responded until now. And I'd rather sell them or trade them for larger (40cm+) bullhorns.

needs pista record cranks and that stem slammed. otherwise looking nice

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

Maybe in the future. Dont have the money to get the crankset + bb. As for the stem... it's angled down to simulate a Nitto Jag or any other threaded track stem.

Posted about 12 years ago

tjw

tjw says:

slam it... your not riding a quill stem so trying to mimic it is pointless. Besides if you want the downward sloping effect on a thread less stem, just run a deda newton pista

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

It's a Cinelli Pista... technically the same thing as the Deda Newton Pista. I will probably put it a spacer down though... but not slam.

Posted about 12 years ago

tjw

tjw says:

no i am not asking what your running now... ok fine don't slam it...

Posted about 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

I know you are not. I'm stating that that's the way the stem is supposed to be that way. It is a tad high but I like it that way. I may put it a few spacers down but I'm not gonna slam it. Thanks anyways.

Benson says:

Dont slam it cause of looks. Slam it only if its comfortable for your riding position.

SillyGooseCookie says:

whoops. I derped and accidentally deleted my own comment. I didn't see that you were going with the Arione and I thought that you were keeping the Charge, so that's why I recommended a Flite or Turbo. I've never ridden with the Arione, but I've heard good things about it, so I bet it'll be great. Can't wait to see it fully built up! :)

great wheels! Show some picture of them mounted!! Also, get some 75's or Campy Record Pistas for this beast!

Posted over 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

I'm not currently in the country (had someone pick them up for me). Once I get back to the States in about 4 days I'll take pics! And that's the plan! I'm thinking Omniums or 75's.

Posted over 12 years ago

SillyGooseCookie

SillyGooseCookie says:

75's are great! I definitely reccomend them!

Posted over 12 years ago

with this build, i'd recommend either campy record pista's (preferrably) or 75's.

I wish! Those reynolds are sexy as fuck. I found some polished deep v's to phil for 300, might pick those up. But I really want to get some track wheels like those reynolds

I'm in Mexico right now so nothing will be bought for a while... once I get back on the 5th of Jan I'll order a headset asap and I'm gonna ride with my mavic cxp22s for a few weeks till I decide what wheels to get and get the $

TB14's! Those are so dope.

Posted over 12 years ago

justskidding says:

I'm considering a Mavic Elliipse wheelset right now and on the hunt for them. Found a guy selling a front Ellipse and a rear Deep V I might pick those up and sell the rear Deep V to get a rear Ellipse online.

Nice foundation! Go with the B123s, you can't go wrong with their classic curves. I believe the Aeon has a 26.0 clamp, so you'll need a shim though.

Posted over 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

Thanks! Might be trading my RB-021's for some B123's this weekend... And yes it is but I'm planning on getting a new stem sooner or later

Dont trade bullhorns for uncomfortable track bars!

Posted over 12 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

I agree with Benson. Keep your bullhorns.

Posted over 12 years ago

justskidding

justskidding says:

Well. I REALLY want drops... Any other track drops that'll be more comfortable? Considering road drops too, but really want track drops.

Posted over 12 years ago

PandaBear

PandaBear says:

Keep your bullhorns so u can switch em out. I have Deda Pista drops which are good and I hear Cinelli Pista drops are comfortable.

53ba5t1an says:

Ive tried the Deda Pistas and i likes those, allthough on long ride the tops of em made my hands pretty sore. I personally like road drops, they give you more stability while skidding. IMO

Posted over 12 years ago

Benson

Benson says:

If you want drops get some road bars like the Deda Zero 100 or FSA Omega Wing compact. Highly recommend!!!!!!
