I don't get it either, we were running 1x on MTBs for years before clutch RD's or narrow/wide were even a thing without a problem. For rough stuff you put a superlight chain keeper (Pauls, MRP 1.x) and it was fine but for road a narrow/wide is more than enough

running 28mm tyres measuring 31mm and no problems in a month of riding. The reviewer certainly seems to like it


Good review and different from another review published recently that uses SRAM and 3T wheels. From my experience having ridden with Enve wheels and 3T wheels on my road bike, Enve wheels are stiffer which would complement the Strada as there is some flex in the frame.

Great looking bike nice to see new options for those who want them. Anxiously waiting for a couple of cassettes for the bikes I already use as 1x.

I was lucky enough to rode with SuperDave and Zitter in a social ride a few weeks back, as they were on their Stradas.
Let just said that the Strada looks MUCH better in person than in pictures. It's definitely a beast of its own. I'm eyeing this bike as a 3rd bike in the stable, maybe when the price comes down a bit.

You put me next to anything and immediately that thing looks better.
Next time say hello!

I will try the 3T strada at bike components in Achen , they have one test bike I've heard
It's a 2 hours drive from home and 2 hours back but I love this city and I will enjoy others things there so it's fine

I know open and 3t are not the same
but will 3T consider selling ready to paint frames like open ? Because not everyone like red
And I get it you produce 2 frames and don't want to deal with multiple paints etc It's fine
But it would be cool for the customer

Or without paint frames just with a varnish like some 3t strada all black we saw ?

You're in luck, we just launched Team Stealth which should start shipping early 2018.

Stealth finish is more labor intensive hence the upcharge

I like the bike and approach (1x11, 1x12) and sram wireless with disc brakes, sounds good.

Perhaps 10-40 with a front of 40 to 50 (maybe 42) would work quite well.

Maybe even 11-40 with with 46 or 48 or 50...

Damn I should tell this OEM bike companies to charge more for unpainted matt frame than frames with colours ...
I should also tell bike brands I've tested bike for as prototypes to paint them if it's cheaper :roll:

Paint requires severals layers and then varnish
Brut matt requires filler and varnish it's lighter and cheaper

The stealth frame is indicated at the same weight than the painted one on your site , I hope this is a mistake as it would make no sense. :noidea:
