You don't need one when you race track. It's time consuming to screw it on and off when you change gears 3-4 times per race night.

Is 50:15 a good Ratio?

Posted over 7 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

I wouldn't ride that ratio on the street. It's hard on the legs. I usually run 50:17 on the street and 50:15 on the track. I like to spin, but some people like to push big gears. It depends on your body.

Posted about 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

Long sotry short, I had the formation Face for 1.5 years and didn't want to let it go. so i built it up with a Phil. Bombproof on the street and stiff enough for the track. Also adds $wAg to the bike with the erected sidewalls instead of low profile rims.

Shonn says:

How do they feel on the street? I'm ordering a 54cm and it's gna be mainly for street use. What do you feel about that? Any opinions?

Posted about 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

It rides really aggressive on the streets. due to its stiffness, you can feel the small bumps in the road. The handling is very smooth and you can predict where your line is going to be around a corner. Going up hill is very easy compared to a FTP. You can feel the stiffness of going up and accelerate harder than before. How ever you just got to look out for potholes, cracks, and tracks. It hates being abused and having a full carbon fork makes you more cautious. Also you have to torque down very up to spec or you'll risk the carbon.

Posted about 8 years ago

Shonn

Shonn says:

Thanks so much for your reply. You helped alot. I'm thinking of changing the fork to add a brake in. Been in a major accident once so safety first. :x

Thanks again for your input. You've helped alot.

I love it! best chain i've used so far. The chain is very smooth and silent. Chainline is spot on and using a ZEN racing chaining and Phil cog could be the explanation of a smooth and quiet super toughness.

and also what the float on your cleats?

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

I can't really compare them to any other pedals, as they are my first clip less pedals. All though, they are very durable. I haven't clipped out of them while doing emergency skids and trying to slow down. My tension is on 1/4 of tension and my cleats are held on tight. All though you can tighten them up even more if you want a semi-permanent hold :P

Yeah, at first i thought they were really overpriced, ugly's. Til i got them for a steal! $50. They don't look good naked (w/o bartape and aerobars) but once they're setup, they look gnarly. I'm sticking with Omniums for a long time until they break or start to become outdated. But, I'll look into the 3D cranks!

The stickers got me, I thought it was an 808! How does the carbon wheels perform? I'm curious how these chinese/taiwanese wheels do performance wise

Posted over 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

Haha! Yeah, alot of people think its a real Zipp. These are the Prolite 88mm carbon with the zipp decals. They perform really well when the wind is calm. However once the winds gust around 20-25mph it gets a bit wobblely when you hold in the base bars, but on the aerobars you don't feel a thing. I never compared them to a real zipp, but I'll let you know the comparasion. I also upgraded the bearings in the hubs with ceramic, so they spin forever.

Posted over 8 years ago

anindito_w

anindito_w says:

Thanks a lot! That's helpful. I thought these wheels were the dengfu carbon you had on the FTP. My bad! I'm thinking of getting a pair of carbon wheels but not willing to fork out so much for them. The OEMs are cheap but I'm worried about the quality. Alright sure let me know how they compare to Zipp!

Posted over 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

Yeah, the deep rims really work! The winds today were gusting 22-27mph. I had a lot of headwind but I felt as if the wheel was pushing against the wind almost giving you a slight tailwind...kindof. Maybe it's the yaw factor of the wheels. but you can definitely feel the aerodynamics of the deep rim. I would try to invest in some carbon! By far the best investment I had not including the Cervelo. I'm planning on getting a rear Zipp 900 disc in the near future. No street riding with it! that's just ignorant. Ha!

Posted over 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

Whoops...I just noticed that. This one is the dengfu rim not the prolite. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Was thinking of someone elses carbon front.

Posted over 8 years ago

anindito_w

anindito_w says:

ahh that sounds nice! You might as well build a TT bike with the set up man! Yep, I'm thinking about that too. Carbon seems to be the way to go. I tried out some HED3s before and was really impressed by its performance. Cuts the wind like nothing! Thanks for the infos btw.

YO quick question, what differences you feel between the ftp and the t1? does the t1 feels more solid/rigid than the ftp?

Posted over 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

the cervelo is by far the better bet than the FTP. I noitced when i climb hills with the T1, i can feel the stiffness and climb faster with it. based on friends. sprint start offs with the T1 feel more solid and less twitchy than the FTP. the T1 has a more relaxed geo and doesn't give me back pain. T1: ftp. 9:6 solidness 8:5 hill climbing 10:8 energy transfer. However the T1 has really thin paint and can't crash on it. carbon steerer and seat post will break on a hard impact.

Posted over 8 years ago

neilmandude

neilmandude says:

I use it for street riding. However twice a week I'm at hellyer park velodrome getting some training in. So I purposely made it for the track and street. Such as the Phil laced to h plus son rear, and all of the racing components purposely mixed in for a street/track setup. Never would I use this bike a beater bike! I do a full cleaning (take every apart: degrease, relube, regrease) every 3 weeks. And a wipe down every week.
