[quote="Krull"]My new Isaac Sonic, Size 51.

I love it. I had EXACT bike in Black when they called it the Impulse. Same frame, Isaac juggled the models around and called it Sonic. Mine creaked like crazy though at rear dropouts and I got rid of it. Hope you have good luck with it. I loved the aesthetics of mine and the ride but constant noise was a deal breaker for me.

i hope, mine does not start creaking-at least the first three rides have been of wonderful quietness. :)

the dropouts of my 07-sonic tend to creak a little bit too. cleaning of the dropouts or removing and cleaning the derailler hanger helps in this case.

Yeah, I tried like crazy to fix it but it didn't work for me. Maybe a smaller rider would not make it creak as bad which is who I sold it to. They don't seem to have same issue. (BTW, I weight 190lb.). I miss that bike but not the creak. I am riding a Focus Cayo, Giant TCR and a Mongoose Bosberg (Kinesis KR810) with no issues. But aesthtically, my Isaac was the best bike I ever owned IMO.

i can say: mine is up to creak as well: i made some long endurance training at this weekend in the mountain-area, combined with several L3-climbs, and especially upwards, he produced some noise. :)
but i will adopt measures, which have already been successful with my 07-sonic. at least for a time, then creaking will start again. :lol:
btw. L3-i had expected one or two questions concerning the crankset. but, ok, probably, this crankset is already established here.

very nice, similar colour scheme to the Canyon floating around here as well. Must be a nightmare to keep clean though :)

Hello,
yes, it should-but its to long, its touching the crank-i have to shorten it someway another time.

I see you have a Power2Max spider. I posted quite a few collected experiences about a month ago. I would think about buying a pair once their accuracy and reliability is proven. So far the stories all appear to be positive. Your thoughts?

Hi,
i am using it since 6th of april, and i went ca 500 miles with it. it works great so far. no problems at all, as good as powertap.
i hope, there will be no rude surpsises in the long term.

Liking this a lot. I saw your other Isaac build whilst trawling through the gallery. What did you transfer across to this frame? Stem, seatpost, and saddle?

but nice build otherwise.

I'm interested. First time I've come across this thread. I bought a SRAM S900 (130mm) as it is compatible with Quark power meter systems. I have a Powertap now and would like to go with crank powermeter system that is more affordable than SRM. Getting closer to pulling the trigger on Quark but maybe I should research Power2Max? Wonder if the S900 crank would work? Don't see why not.
