And btw. Where are you located? Are you ever going to sell that front wheel because there a few 101 24h hoops on Ebay and I wouldn't wanna get one unless I had the front 82 with matching older decals.

7.2 kg? No way...... >.>

Posted over 11 years ago

imran

imran says:

yes way ;) the frameset itself weight lighter than cinelli mash, controltech scored 99 is 100 gram,open pro and miche is certainly light,carbon seatpost with zero 100 dropbar. most of the parts i use may not be very fancy but it is definitely lightweight.

Wait dude, i dont get why you have to use alot of energy when using your planet x on steep hills .

Posted over 11 years ago

imran says:

you have to try high deep carbon rim yourself to feel it. i assume it is the carbon flex and high deep.

Bitchin' bike man! LOVE the blue chainring bolts! They look so sick! And nice chainring. ;] Check the one I've got in the new pic for my IRO.

And I've always wanted a Planet X wheelset. How do you like that front?

Posted over 11 years ago

imran

imran says:

haha... thanks man. i just checked out your new iro setup and i like it :-) i would love to see it in black pearl izumi chain, black headset and maybe cover up the brake lining with black tape and you will have a one hell of a dark knight machine. the planet x is all that smooth on normal road but when it comes to steep hills i have to use a lot of energy.

How're you liking your ratio with the massive 55T? I had a 54T and i hated it haha.

Posted over 11 years ago

imran

imran says:

55/18=3.06 ratio is still ok. i know that most ppl will say oh wow what a big chainring ppl using but they also need to see the cog size. ratio is another thing. for me anything nearer to 3 is ok. i have tried 50/15=3.33 ratio and it was very hard to pedal on the uphill but it was nice to ride in the velodrome. yeah, 3.06 is just nice.

andrewyoon says:

yeah i had 54/17. but i felt like i was pedaling with a lot of effort but not going as fast as i wanted. :\

Posted over 11 years ago

imran

imran says:

Wow... 54/17=3.176 ratio... quite heavy for me too... maybe you can try 18t cog and you can have 3 ratio...

rapide says:

nice! one quick question, whats your height? i'm interested to buy one of these (my other choice is mash bolt) but cant decide on which size im going to buy, 50/53 :) i'm 171 btw

Posted almost 12 years ago

imran

imran says:

hie... my height is 168cm and this frame size is 50cm centre to centre. in my opinion, the most suitable frame size for you is 50/ 51 cm. i totally recommend you to buy this frameset other than mash bolt due to its cheaper pricing and weight wise. if you want brand naming go for mash bolt. for me there has been a lot of people using cinelli, leader bike and kagero thats why i decided to get this frameset.

hie bro :-) i would say the frame can fly... really fly... its aluminium is thin and solid... you can feel the tarmac*ggrrrrrrr* and if hit the bump it sound *thud*... less vibrating absorbtion than kagero... thanks for the compliment :-) are you from prapanca team and winner's friend???
