Agree, it's totally ridiculous you have 2 spare hooks on that rail and only this bike to hang... 1 bike missing! :beerchug:

You are right. Clearly I can fit at least 1 additional bike on the wall. I'm going to have to notify my wife that an internet stranger says it's ok for me to get another bike haha. I didn't choose the N+1 life, it chose me.

Just FYI, lifting the rear wheel while sprinting is a technique issue, not too related to a long stem. You can lift the rear wheel with a 50mm stem, or be completely planted with a 150mm stem. Just practice. I had to work on my technique too.

Huh, I have this problem too (although when climbing steep hills rather than sprinting). Always assumed it was a combination of tyre pressure and road surface. :noidea:
What did you do to combat it?

Just be more smooth in power delivery, don't just do sharp jabs of power with every downstroke.

What a build.
Absolute credit to your time and effort and getting it to As light as that.


Absolutely love the crit frame, I’ve been toying with the idea of buying one.

I have the Allez sprint but
Having a dilemma myself, as I have a spare Di2 gearset but I have to drill the frame.

Two pictures of mine.

One with zuus 60mm clinchers (which failed) 2nd with a different set of 60’s.

Now

Few things I need to do to get it how I want though

do you think a 56 could work? obviously gonna need to stack the HT. Currently ride on 55-56 frames.
How does the bike feel. tight and small or a little big?

Funny, you are the same height as me and run the same set up as I would (maybe I would put a negative stem on it).

Now I can see how the bike looks if I would purchase one.

Lovely bike!
