Stems got some serious angle considering it's an aggressive frame.. Also the chain looks to tight for me.. Track slack saves gears.

I think if you check out the 28 other builds I've done in the past it's clear I have more than the one stem that's on it now. I thought it went well with the build's flow and geometry as a pursuit bike. And although it's photo'd with the wheel set that's on it last, this wasn't generally the one I ran when commuting. I understand track slack saves gears, I did note to make it have slight slack. However, it's not the first time a chain has fallen off on me. I prefer to be safe than sorry, and I also have more than enough drive trains to replace this one when I wanted to.

Thanks, it even looks better now! I always questioned if it looks better with the drops or the risers & whether or not I should just switch out that godawful stem.

How supple would you say the fork is? Being aluminum and all. Does it really negate the positives from having a steel frame?

Posted almost 10 years ago

BetahProd

BetahProd says:

The fork is extremely solid. In fact I feel it's so solid that it tends to hurt my wrist from long distance rides but maybe that's just me. The frame is steel so it balances the comfortability out(: but as it is more aerodynamic than any of my other forks I've had. And the rake is 38mm so I prefer that for more pursuit-ness

brembilla says:

Oh I see. With that said then, would you prefer a carbon fork with the same rake as opposed to that fork?

Posted almost 10 years ago

BetahProd

BetahProd says:

Tbh, I prefer a carbon fork like the alpina or bianchi fork I had, it's a lot more comfortable but both are light. I was planning to get a funda fork but Iike pursuit geo so I plan on using this one unless I find another with a better rake!

This bike looks pretty rad. I haven't really seen too many actually built up. The s80 fits it very well. I'm seriously considering buying an s80 myself. Do you like it more than the H3?

Posted almost 10 years ago

BetahProd

BetahProd says:

Thanks, h3 is lighter. s80 are heavy but definitely more stiff & aero. I prefer the s80 for looks, but h3 would be a better option. Surprisingly from my use, when I first got the s80 it had more crosswinds than the h3 did. Both are great, s80 seems more durable though

Thanks for getting back to me and thanks for the info. I'm going to keep looking for both until I find a decent deal.

EBAY! that was right after i got crashed & the hed3 smashed. Luckily the frame is fine. dropped it on a bike rack a month or 2 ago, got a fat dent on the side. Normally I never crash or drop my bikes, but I thought it was standing and it slipped from its slot.
