In some German boards they discussed the problem Python and Shimano canti breaks. Some of the users have really problems with this combination. Sometimes the break works so "good" that the riders have problems with staying on the bike. With froglegs these problems should disappear.

The highter you moove the straddle up towards the handlebars the smoother and less powerfull the front brake will get. To do this you have to replace the straddle wire shimano ships with their brakes and replace it with a piece of shifting cable.
Maybe with a very small frame you would run out of space, but I don't think it's the frame/forks problem.

Here is my cross bike with Cosmics. I'm little bit sick now so I got nothing to do. I put my Cosmics in my cross bike. And no way I 'm gonna ride with the wheels. Just for the pics, to get your attention on the wheels and not on the ugly fork :oops: .

I think fork is not ugly, saddle is. Is fork steel? Where frame set is sold/what is that frame. Tell us more...nice!

I think it was big mistake remove stickers on Cosmics. :evil:

I think there is some design broplem in new Shimano Canti brakes. I had some vibration broblem in them with one of my ti-fork design but I changed desing bit stiffer and it disabeared. But that fork was way nicer to ride. but last design is way sleeker looking, like road fork. Lighter and stiffer. Some customers have changed to coolstop pads and got away broblem. Only brake to make this happen in any of my forks.

Frame is Empella. The saddle is to try, if it fits there comes a black one. But I think it's gonna be an SLR. The fork I don't know, it's an replacement for the carbon fork. The had some problems with it.

The Cosmics are for my race bike and that one is black and white. And I can make decals if I want.

I know those Asian CF-forks. Scary stuff.

Frame has quite short head tube? I wonder why...???

Don't know why it is short. That's the geometry from Empella.

And about the carbon fork, I heard something that they used to less carbon by the steerer pipe and fork legs. And now they are making a new one or they try to make the old one stronger with some more layers of carbon.

Hi

It was posted earlier, but I have made so many changes to it that I thought a new post would be appropriate.

Frame: Moots Psychlo-X 52 cm
Fork: Kocmo Titanium, prepared by Moots to the exact same finish
Headset: Chris King
Stem: FRM World Cup Ti
Handlebars: FRM Web Bar
Seatpost: Moots Titanium
Seat: SLR TT
STI-shifters: No way Campa Record Ultra Ergopower
Front and rear derailleur: Campa Record Carbon
Cassette: Record Titanium 12-23
Crankset: FRM Integrale Compact (48/34)
Chain: Campagnolo Record
Pedals: CB Eggbeater Tripple Ti with shorter axle
Racewheels: Zipp 404 Cross Tubular
Tires: Wolber
Brakes: Paul neo retro

Totalweight is a scratch below 7,6 kg even with the heavy titanium fork.

Regards

Martin
