What size Durano did you fit? 23 or 25c?

Posted over 7 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

25c with these wheels being 25mm wide. Could probably use 23c but I prefer the comfortable ride

very nice build!! how is the 54cm working for you? i am in between getting a 54/56

thanks!

Posted over 7 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

I like 54.. the 56 would have fit me also but smaller frame is easier to throw around and probably stiffer I don't know :p

well developed for sure, but those ergo bars destroy an otherwise beautiful flow

Nice build ! isn't it feels a bit small ? 54cm has 53,5 cm top tube. For a dude 180 ish height looks a bit small..

Posted about 8 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

Yeah, maybe. I can ride both 54cm and 56cm. I have riden a 56cm with a shorter stem and it fits me fine. But I'm kinda in between sizes and I prefer smaller frames with higher seat posts and long stems. I feel more in control of the bike.

lesik says:

I had a same problem and took 56cm. I am even a bit smalller. 179cm.

Thanks man! The rims are solid! I went for the Belgium+ which are slightly wider still at 25mm and they are so nice for the street. Safe to say I'm never selling this wheelset ;)

how's the toe overlap on this frame though? is it hard to maneuver in the traffic?

Posted about 10 years ago

crashoverride says:

Thanks man,
Yeah, there is a lot of overlap but you get used to it. Lean into turns, and go gently around cars in traffic :P

basbolemu says:

nice build, ihope i can built cinelli parallax to,

can i know, how tall are you?
which one better? parallax or kagero?

Posted about 10 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

Thanks mate.

I'm roughly 180 cm tall and this size 45cm is perfect for me.
And of course I much prefer the parallax over the Kagero, but they are very different frames. The Kagero is a more aggressive geometry which does feel nice to ride but I found I would get a sore lower back on rides over 50km.
The Parallax is not as aggressive as it does not have the positive rise top tube, but it does have a slightly tighter wheel base (true track geometry) and is very responsive. I think its better for street mashing personally, much more comfortable in the drops than I was on the kagero. Its also a Cinelli, which many would argue is a better quality frame than the Leader.
I hope this helps.

why there is a hole in the fork ? Isn't it suppose to be plugged and painted ?

Posted about 10 years ago

crashoverride says:

Yeah I thought so to.. But no big deal, I'm going to try and rig up a front led in there..

Posted about 10 years ago

lesik

lesik says:

the frame you have is from the first parallax delivery or from the second one ? they were suppose to fix this in the second delivery.

Posted about 10 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

it was the first batch into Australia so the second batch might be different. I might find cool cinelli button to put over it..?

I think the Parallax is the only Cinelli track frame I like. The Mash frames look silly.

Ozren0 says:

I've never seen that model of "track drops". What is it that makes them "track"?

Posted about 10 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

I think the only thing that makes them 'track' drops is the lack of brake cable groove which most bars have.. I didn't want bars with that groove because of the thin cloth tape I am using. Also because of the angles it really only has 2 hand positions, top or drops.. there isn't really much of a grip for the top reach position where hoods would normally sit.. but I'm just making that last bit up :p

Posted about 10 years ago

Ozren0

Ozren0 says:

Track drops have a deeper drop and the curve starts closer to the stem. There is nothing "track" about these bars. A lot of road bars don't have grooves for cable routing.

Posted about 10 years ago

crashoverride

crashoverride says:

I suppose you are right, they aren't conventional track bars.

Posted about 10 years ago

Ozren0

Ozren0 says:

I don't mean this in any mean or rude sense, but there's literally nothing track about them besides that they're on a bike that COULD be classified as a track bike.

iStone says:

I was always scared of anything under 32, but raced a season of CX and did a few rough gravel centuries on some 24/20 wheels and they were just fine. I plan to build the Belgium+ in 28/24 for this CX season.

Killer bike though. I miss my Mash :(
