into the old school. Steel frames and 90s components
i have contacted you elsewhere but id like dibs on the front mech. i assume you post given your name.
weird that FFWD project/falcon have started to push out the 2-spoke design by M5. I was just reading an article about them here but theyve been available to purchase for some time(couple of years). https://bikerumor.com/2018/07/09/eb18-ffwd-falcon-project-flies-a-two-spoke-aero-wheel-concept/
the F.I.R 6 spokes had a fragile section above the valve hole circle, if its missing i'd factor that in.
also of note, i have repaired 3 hed3 wheels now where the alloy rim has started to come unglued from the carbon- this is down to the breakdown of the adhesive and oxidisation of the materials - many of these wheels are quite old now. Please check if any part of the rim can be moved- it may appear fine but it does produce an audible click when riding.
how about.. ?
They are running 1x11 Etap. Its a 62T chainring. I dont know all the particulars however the timing chain is indeed the inner ring. The total bike weighs around 13KG from what im told which seems pretty good considering the sheer size of it. You can imagine it wasnt a cheap build with 2x USE Tula, 2x Rotor chainsets, electronic gears, enve forks, tri rig brakes etc the total is somewhere £6500 ish so Id imagine the frame to be around 3k due to the sheer amount of Ti used and Justins time as several options were explored for size/geometry. Quite a few companies have sponsored the new venture including Burls.
2 friends have just had this knocked up in Ti. Attending some CTT events this year
indeed, curios to see this develop
