I loove your Parlee S-kane! Those M3 cranks with the Praxis rings are pretty great no?!
They have noticeably better performance (stiffness and drive) than the SR cranks i had running a campag bb30 setup.
Which I'm putting down to the better bb30 system and the stiffer chain rings
I'm very happy with them, I wasn't that fussed on the look of the praxis chainrings but went for the best shifting option as recommended by Madcow.
The set up turned out to be a whole lot nicer than expected and the shifting is slick and very positive
the m3s look real nice in the flesh, the finish is very slick, THM don't make rubbish
I really like the Spider system, you can change to std bcb rings and an SRM down the line with out spending up large or buying new cranks and they lend the way for a set of one peice spider-less chainrings too which would be very slick
I ride 2-300 kms a week and weigh 85kgs. I'm very happy with the setup, I have had zero component failures and once every thing was setup right zero issues with any of the parts I've chosen to use. And I've recently started doing much longer rides, 3-4 hours in the saddle. It's a very comfortable little bike and it rewards been ridden fast very nicely
Can't really complain about that.
I will get some pictures that do it justice in the next week or two
And makot.. I'm totally going to ignore your inane comments... I mean come on dude you don't even own a road bike and the hongfu special your planing on building... By the look of the build list your not even bothering to roll the turd in glitter
