Hi! So i haven't been on here in a while but I moved to CA about a year ago. I haven't been able to use it much since I got here, but still like to ride it when I can. I will consider your request! It's hard to part with this beauty emotionally haha.

Civia emersons are great. Similar to 3T ergonovas. They were on my gtb

Soma Highway one's are really nice compact bars. Essentially identical to the FSA wing pro compacts.

How are those kinlin rims? i heard they were light, also cheap!

onitsukatiger says:

They are light and cheap. Wheelset (less tires, tubes and cog) weighed 1500g. You can barely get that weight with carbon track wheelsets, let alone sub $350 shipped. Doesn't feel any less stiff than a deeper profile rim, but sure as hell quicker to accelerate.

Best bang for your buck I'd say

Nice! I've been trying to figure out Pulse/Kinesis geometry. What's the top tube length?

onitsukatiger says:

Thanks! Scroll through this pdf all the way to the bottom there should be a geo chart for the pulse. You can use google translate to translate the german words (that's what I did).

http://www.mtb-kataloge.de/Bikekataloge...

I've found the lengths mentioned on that pdf are pretty close to measuring them. My top tube length is around 535-540mm.

Thanks for the info! Interesting, my Pulse has the same top tube length (540mm), yet has a taller head-tube. http://www.pedalroom.com/bike/54cm-gt-p...

The geometry on these bikes is interesting, and seems to vary, but I'm not quite sure how. I also had an older GT Kinesis (same bike but without the Pulse logo) that had a 540mm top tube and had the same head-tube height as yours.

That is quite interesting...I would have much preferred a taller head tube to mitigate the amount of drop I have. When I first looked at your Pulse, I noticed it had an unusually short wheelbase (crank to wheel distance) - this could be from the proportionally shorter top tube you say. Pulses, from what I've read, have little to no toe overlap, and this is quite apparent on their larger frames. Even on my Pulse, I have only the slightest rub.

Like you said, I have also found much variance in Pulse geometries and they are probably from different years. Both of our Pulses have a pursuit-styled top tube, but we have different seat collars.
