Agreed, this could be that good if someone were to give it a home:
De-anodized the black chainring. Just need to buy a bigger range cassette and it'll be done. And maybe an inline post. Recommendations? Thompson would look weird maybe.
Apologies if it's already been discussed here but what's the consensus on wide bars and 110m+ stems? I've really taken to risers lately but i'm worried being upright all the time is going to stunt my already shit flexibility. I was thinking of using a longer stem to stretch me out a little as on a road bike i'm normally using a 90/100mm stem resting on the hoods. My Capo has a road rake fork so is fairly calm up front, without having a longer stem to try i'm a little concerned 110mm+ with 680 bars will be a little boat like.
I rode my road bike with 140mm stem and 710mm bars. Rode fine and was fun.
Speaking of which, may sell this frameset soon.
I'm not sure i really understand the question, you want to ride an bike that's uncomfortable, so that you can ride a bike that's uncomfortable?
With flatbars you'll generally need a longer stem to replicate a more "road" postion with drops, but then the wider the bars will bring your body lower so might need a short/higher stem.
A short stem will make the bike feel "lively"
Basically it will just be trail and error with making the bike comfortable and fun, but making your bike more uncomfortable will do nothing to improve your flexibility and will make it worse if you're not doing stuff off the bike.
could you share whose rack you have on there?
ha was just about to post that
Wanna flog this. I don’t really know what it’s worth though. Any interest?
What size is it?
built to fit me at 188cm in that photo
I am interested but I too have no idea of the value
£550? i have the original carbon forks which i'll probably sell the bike with instead of the steel ones
