Where did you wake up?

:D

Price is ~same and weight in under/or ~100g more.

I'll bet CR1 is bit stiffer due to bigger diameter tubeset.

But Look has better fork and many like it's traditional look more.

Trumppi -

Beautiful bike!

Do you like the Sword bar/stem? I wonder if they are a bit on the flexy side...

Thanks

K-sword bar is not a flexy, but it is elastic in vertical direction. It is hard to explain, but it works fine and I like the shape of those ITM bars. Stem is a super stiff and heavy (184g/12cm). So the K-Sword compo is not best possible WW stuff, but if it's suitable for Valverde ( even when He sprints )then it is Ok for me. :D

But after all K-sword bar and stem fits nice to 585 frame...

and if you have problems with finnish or finnish people babelfish doesn't help you at all. :lol: This topic is four month old
