The bike's been finished and did some rides on it. It's one of the smoothest rides I've been on. Stiff enough, comfortable enough. The geo on their standard (non custom) frames has a slack seattube angle so it may not be suited for those with little saddle setback (say < 6cm). The setback in the pics is 7cm and I am using the shortest position on the clamp.
The Cyfac has a slightly slacker seattube (72.5) and a taller headtube which gives me a little less reach, compared to my Time. perfect. I left the spacers on top of the steerer in case I want to change to another stem. I put the Syntace combo back on, which is at 6 degrees. The syntace stuff is noticably stiffer than the Easton combo. I am using one 5mm spacer. This gives me about 7.5cm drop from saddle to bars.
Some nice features:
The way the cable stops are designed keeps the cables away from the frame. No cable rub or rattle.
There is plenty room for bigger tires on front and rear. I would guess it would fit up to 27s or so.
It came with two seatpost clamps. The one you see is a fixed position one a la Giant. It has two threaded holes for adjustment. The other clamp is a adjustable one.
The bottlecages hold the bottles well. No rattle or jumping bidons!
All these give it a really quiet ride. Cool.
To put the clamp on without damaging the paint, unscrew the bolt, thread it in from the other side with a coin in the slot. The bolt will push against the coin and open the clamp.
