Last year in august, after a road bike test organized by one of the local bike shops, i decided that i pull the plug and build a road bike. I really wanted to have a bike built onto a carbon frame with carbon wheels. I started searching for a frameset, i looked everywhere... I was blown away by the prices of framesets and wheelsets, you know... those big companies, like Specialized, Felt, Canyon, just to name a few. I love their design, and i'm sure they sell quality products, but i just can't fork out thousands for a frameset or for a wheelset.
One day i found a page where people were talking about chinese open mould framesets and wheelsets. I liked what i see, so started reading more and more about the possibilities of ordering from china. One day a friend of mine told me about a hungarian company selling carbon framesets and wheelsets. The company's name is C12
. I was suprised that they also sell open mould frames and wheelsets.
After a couple of weeks, i decided that i buy the R1 frameset.
The quality of the frameset is great. The wheels are also some kind of chinese open mould wheels, i don't really know too much about them, as i bought them from a local guy, for a great price, but they looking pretty good, and well built wheelset.
And last but not least, i'd like to thank for theredmiata
for the seatpost collar, as i got it from him when he was giving away his unwanted bike parts a couple of weeks ago. It really completes my cockpit. I hope he sees this build! Thank you once again!
Unfortunately i don't have a proper scale to measure the bike, but it is not a WW bike by any means. I can only guess the weight, which is somewhere around at 7500 grams.
I guess thats all, let the pictures do the rest.
