but is it sexeh and a bit aero?
Definitely is sexeh. (also doesn't have the ugly droopy chainstays)
I went for the interpretation that hippy wanted big tyres before a bit of aero.
Looks like the Arkose frame in Large is massive. Medium is sold out/discontinued. Very sad.
Any other framesets I should be looking at? £800 budget otherwise will need to drop the custom wheel idea.
800 just for the frame?
There is still this model:
Tall could work, although same colour as my partners Arkose, couldn't cope with that.
It says made for flat mount, because it is different from the other version, which clearly states it's made for IS/Post mount..?
I would find it strange if a custom builder wouldn’t be able to add those features to a frame
I normally grab the seatpost from behind, under the stays.
How many Stayers have you owned? Do you know the guys or something?
Yeah, I like the huge tyres. Aero is clearly meaningless when it's covered in bags and shit and I already have road bikes so I won't be swapping wheels and road racing on it.
Dude, I literally highlighted my issue with that sentence and you still missed it? :P
Gimme a brake.
Neither are really custom though are they? They're basically off the peg frames. I like off the peg frames - it means when I inevitably destroy one I can replace it relatively quickly.
I've got a light tourer/audax thing (30c tyres with guards, 35 without) and a 650b fat tyred fixed gear. I know them now, yeah :P
The tourer has had "a bit" of work done on the front end so make that two and a half.
Yeah they have five sizes for the groadingers and do them in small batches... though for a bit more money you can tweak things (there's also a custom geo option though they reckon you should most likely be covered by the sizes they have already)
You win some, and you loose (lose?) some.. not a native speaker.
I'm not a native speaker either.
It's taken me years to get my English bad enough to fit in with this lot. ;)
Lose. Lose is the opposite of win, loose is the opposite of tight. As hippy says, quite a few native English speakers get it wrong.
Much like break/brake. Bloody homonyms.
Got lots of those in Swedish. Difference is they’re also spelled exactly the same way.
More specifically, they're homophones.
Much like the British dyslexia association is in Reading
About to build myself some 650b wheels. Does anyone have any experience of building/riding Kinlin TL-23 rims? Seem to get overall positive feedback online with some negative stuff about their QC.
Any other tubeless ready, wide(ish) rims I should be considering (DT, WTB...)?
DT R500db, I built my wheelset with them and DT 350 hubs and it was faultless.
Thanks! They look like a good option and at a decent price as well
Can you peel the logos off the DT swiss rims? Heard great things but the logos are LOUD!
