Bike History

Click a link below to see past stages of this bike.

  1. Initial Stage
  2. Low Pro Urban Build.

Current Stage Info:

Urban assault with super comfy risers make this a really great bike to spin at high speed. Low Pro rims help with cross-winds and give me a slightly softer but responsive ride on uneven pavement as happens in SOMA.

This build is after returning the first frame for a warranty issue.

I was curious about it too. I assume it's a set back post but not sure.

Soooo its loose in the downtube because I just cracked the clamping piece of the tube. I was off on seatpost diameter by .2mm and thought it would hold. I ended up overtightening even with a shim in to add diameter to the post.

Also yes the post is generally just a little too short. I'm debating going longer, or just sizing up the frame 1cm since I'm currently calling in the warranty on the frame.
