I'm interested. First time I've come across this thread. I bought a SRAM S900 (130mm) as it is compatible with Quark power meter systems. I have a Powertap now and would like to go with crank powermeter system that is more affordable than SRM. Getting closer to pulling the trigger on Quark but maybe I should research Power2Max? Wonder if the S900 crank would work? Don't see why not.


it would work-they are offering the S900-crank in their product-line.

so, you could send your crank to p2m. they make it compatible to the p2max-spider.

the only "problem" with p2max: no long-time-experiences. its available since just half a year.

but, so far, i didnt hear of any problems with the system (there is a long thread in german "tour-forum" concerning p2max-experiences)

Liking this a lot. I saw your other Isaac build whilst trawling through the gallery. What did you transfer across to this frame? Stem, seatpost, and saddle?


hi,
i transfered everything, except the crankset. but i am although still riding a sonic-limited, with dura ace and powertap.
i am using it for racing (senior 2-class, ok for carbon-frames :D )

@ 5 Nm: you are right-the chain is a little bit to long-i made it like this, because i am still not shure about riding the bike with 50/34 or 52/36. but i think, i will go for 50/36, which appears to me as ideal for long mountain-climbs.

two more notes:

weight of the bike: 6.5 kg (14,3 lbs), with edge 500, pedals and bottle cages.

creaking isaac-dropouts:

1. the screws, connecting dropouts and frame, are not always perfectly fixed-the first thing should be to check the screw-connection in this area.

2. isaac dropouts obviously need strong quick-releases-with those of american classic, my isaac is creaking like hell, with those of tune or mavic, there is quietness! :D

after changing from speedneedle to selle italia slr, i decided to change the saddle again: i reactivated my selle san marco era k. i am using this saddle although on my winter-bike (yes, winter is going to start in germany :) ), and it feels so great, that i decided to install it on my isaac-summer-bike as well.
i think, this saddle is a good choice for friends of slender saddles.
and, by the way, it looks really nice.
but no weight-weenie: 100 gramm more than the slr 135 gr.

some changes of seat-position changed the appearance of my sonic quite a lot:

-fulfilling to my long legs, i moved the saddle about 1 cm to the back
-i changed to a handle-bar with 2,3 cm less reach
-more saddle-to-bar-heigth by using a -17 degree-stem

to those, who get lost in this topic: i would not recommend the (pictured) saso bottle-cages. just changed them, because i noticed them being just before breaking (cracks>unstable).
they have been less than one year in use.
i heard about this problem of many other fellows, so i would not recommend this cages, even, if you can get them very favorable.
best regards

Those wheels are way better! I would suggest you to try removing the red stripe from your stem. Others have done it with acetone if I remember wright.

i absolutely agree, the red stripe incommodes. i try the aceton, thanks for your advice. :)

the wheelset originally is thought for my tt. but, thats the way, i see it also, it goes nice with the isaac as well.

...and sorry for the picture-quality...terrible, i know.

Couldnt resist to equip my isaac with a light 3t-rigida-team-fork. good new option for isaac-users, who wish a lighter fork. there are very few forks with 1 1/8-1 1/4 diameter available. i think, the 3t goes quite nicely with the isaac frame, and it saves, all in all, ca 150 gramm.

unstable nonsense-wheelset, a spoke fractured at one of my important races this year. :(

Nice bike which ever way you build it...however with white forks it looks very clean.

Thank you. The build will probably stay like this now. Seat-position is perfect, and i like the appearance with the thomson-parts best.
Sometime, one should let it be. :wink:
