More delicate? I do still have the original PowerGlide ones (see studio photos) but those are definitely more flexy than the current Red ones. I do wish these were all black, but not enough to spray them or anything.

i think the red chainrings look to chunky, the powerglides would be sweet imho

real quick - how do you like the brooks c13? I've been jonesing for a longer saddle, and i'm interested in that one..

It takes a lot of time to break in -- probably like 150 miles before it really started to flex -- but once it does it's great. It's feels like a mix of the Selle Italia SL I had before and a Fizik Aliante.

Before upgrading from the 3T to Thomson bits it was at 17.9 lbs with the training wheels - need to reweigh at some point this offseason.

My next bike is going to be Ti, but i'm stuck between Seven and Firefly. I work at Landry's and we are a Seven dealer.

I live in Washington Square and I love Landry's. Got my 'cross bike from you guys.
I honestly think you're getting a slightly nicer ti frame from Firefly, but you can't go wrong with either of those two options.

I saw the Firefly 'cross team out at the MRC cross race in Lancaster 2 weeks ago, they do build a nice looking frame.

FFF says:

looks a bit small

lots of seatpost and the stem is about 130mm?

Posted about 8 years ago

jbaillie

jbaillie says:

Hey FFF, I've heard that a few times about the stem, but having gotten used to riding a 58cm on my two long-term off the shelf bikes, I wanted a slightly smaller frame. I'm about 6'4 (195 cm) but I prefer a 58cm frame with larger cockpit as opposed to 61cm if I'm going stock.
