Hi there!

I have a same frame like u. I just wanna know what's ur bb's axle lenght is? Because i tryed several combinations to fit in the frame, but as far i always had a problem, the crank's "star" part is always collided with the chain fork. I tried sram omnium, miche primato (with its miche 107mm BB), but i got the same problem with both setup. Myb i shoud try a larger (113) axle lenght, but in this case my chain line will be massed up, as i see 1 of ur pictures too.

... bizarre mix of hightech frame and old school/retro look components... but it really works for it... nice one!

Thanks. Torn with the old and new i guess. Truth is, i wanna be ready to go back to a steel build when the opportunity arises.

Yes i know... Its like a sore thumb on my bike. My current crank does not feel stiff at all. Im looking at either suntour superbe or dura ace. Well, hopefully i find a good deal on those.

This build is sweet, I always wondered how these frames rode

Posted over 10 years ago

CaptainSlowdive

CaptainSlowdive says:

Thanks man...it feels effortless to me when pedaling. It's not as harsh as I would think it is. Stiff but comfortable enough for casual zipping ard the hood. My first carbon ride and no regrets.

Your bars are upside down.. You can see the brake holes on top when its suppose to be on the bottom

Posted over 10 years ago

CaptainSlowdive

CaptainSlowdive says:

That sums up my comment page... My bars are inverted. Aesthetically I do prefer it to be that way. But yes, holes for cable routing is exposed. I will duly revert to its original positioning.

I don't like the decals on the bull horn. Haha. It has a yellow decal that can't be removed.

CaptainSlowdive says:

It's quite comfy as I always rest my hands exactly on the bar ends and not when it bends. Another thing is that I have a disdain for the decals on the bars.
