why would you change out the wheel & crank sets? it was such a perfect build . . . seems drastically watered-down now when it's easy to see you know what you're doing in a build

I like to change my setups every now and then. But no worries the LW wheelset is not going anywhere but my T1 ;) I think pursuits look good on low profils and DA crankset are probably the best out there. Anyway it's a different feel, nice to comute on, i'm in love.

I know a couple of guys that run a carbon seatpost on their track bikes and they all seem to have the clamp twisted 180 degrees so that they prevent failure and other things of that matter.

DoctorLarch says:

Best way to damage the frame tube around the clamping zone. Plus there is no need to do a 180 for better clamping on carbon seatpost. It works the same as any material. Just have to watch out not to put in too much torque.

Smoke show! I'd love to see this beast on the track, well done with the wheelset

Revisiting this bike and it's so good! The new MCFK/Schmolke cockpit simple amazing. I do prefer the matching Mavic wheelset over the Lightweight front though. If you had the full Rundkurs track set then that'd be ridiculous.

DoctorLarch says:

Thanks for the kind words! I agree with you on the wheelset being paired up properly looks better. But that front front G1 that belonged to a friend of mine had been tempting me for a while now. It is a collector piece today and such a rad wheel, will try to find her a sibling to go on the rear ;)

Since you already have the deep section matching tubulars, I would be on the lookout for a disc wheel to compliment the Lightweight, honestly. I don't think Lightweight ever did a track disc wheel, and the early gens were white, which I personally don't like as much as the black ones. But whatever you do will be good, based on the current status of things!

wow! those wheels look amazing, seems like a pretty good idea to lace the ellipse hubs into the cosmic rims.

Thx! Best idea ever ! planning to do the same in the futur with a set of C40 clincher :)

it kind of solves the problem of finding full carbon track clinchers for a decent price

Love those wheels, very unique! Are they Cosmic Carbone rims from road wheels relaced using Ellipse hubs and spokes? That seems like it would work because the Cosmic rims are just carbon faired aluminum rims.

brenmitch says:

Oh I see from your Fuji that my guess was correct. Definitely something I've never seen before, props.

Posted over 6 years ago

DoctorLarch

DoctorLarch says:

Yes Bren you are right and these are absolutely amazing wheels! Have never ridden something quite like it before... But may I just correct you on one point: the rims are in fact Cosmic Carbone Pro and they are full carbon rims with no aluminium part. It is an older generation of Cosmic wheels Mavic released starting in 2009. Unfortunately nowadays they don't make these full carbon rims anymore.. and most of the Cosmic models have An aluminium circle as base for the CF as you said.

brenmitch says:

Oh that's cool, I know about those wheels and was looking for the fairing holes when there's no fairing! How did the Ellipse spokes fit, with the rim being so much deeper? Aren't they quite a bit too long?

brenmitch says:

You have very good taste in wheels, looking at the other Corima spoked, trispoke, and Mavic wheels you have. How many different Cosmic+Ellipse wheels have you done before?

Posted over 6 years ago

DoctorLarch

DoctorLarch says:

;) If you look closely, on the ellipse the nipples are sticking out of the alu rim. Here on the SSC carbon rim you just mount the nipples and screw them on inside the carbon rim! if you measure the distance between the end of blade of the spoke until the nipple goes into the Ellipse rim you will find it corresponds to the extra bit of deepness on the SSC Carbon Pro rim compare to the Ellipse rim. The second trick is you have to screw the nipples upside down: that is the round larger part which is in fact the head of the nipple goes in first! and sits directly on the carbon rim inside it (note that you can put a washer between the carbon surface and the nipple's head to make sure it doesn't dig into the rim when you build the tension in the spokes). Hope this is clear for you, sorry my english isn't my first language. :)

Yep I know.. But it was either that or spacers or a custom headtube lenght for $$$ more and bad esthetics! So I opted for the #biganglestemgang

Could have gone with track standard and would have been close to same fit with a normal -6 or +6 stem, but pursuit top tube is cool.
