I am very curious...

Did you weigh the crankset, including bottom bracket and TA rings? I am considering the Noir crankset, but haven't found any numbers concerning Noir + TA combinations.

Nice, but with your weight i doubt that fork works well for you.

Maybe Beatnik misjudged your weight. In the picture, it looks like you would be about 90kg of muscle...

I rode that fork for years and i´m 1.90 cm and around 87 kg, it was too flexy for me, bad handling and control, it´s better to sacrifice the extra weight and buy a Fox or something with 32 mm . Just my opinion.

It's not the best suspension fork in the market in terms of stiffness. But I'm 1,78m with 72kg and 6,5% bf.
I'm looking for the tuned version of the new SID WC.

But I agree with you.

Nice ride!

How do you find those I-Link cables and Aligator rotors?

Also, how did you get the San Marco like that? fine sanding?

Ciao 8)

The I-links are fine! Superb shifting. But I must try with Powercordz. Now I'm using regular steel cables.

The Alligator rotors (before I had the windcutter model now the Aries/cirrus model) are new with only a few km's. The brake pads are also new. More 100km's and I can give you a better opinion about them.

I get the San Marco like that with the precious help of the Dremel machine. 8)

Regards
