Dami just got an order of DLC cables from Fairwheel bikes yesterday, I could have ordered an SL hanger from Jason...
I'm waiting on a new cassette and shifter,mech combo from shiny bikes so it's off the road until they turn up... My friend has taken the hanger to get it anodized black any ways..
How does it ride.? How does it handle?
It's awesome. The front end is soo sure footed, and sharp it's amazing. I'm lending a SR, hyperion equipped moots compact at the moment and it's a fast snappy little bike but the z5 is so much less nervous through high speed corners , sucks up road buz much better too. The parlee does everything just more comfortably and easily. You fight the bike less to get more speed.
The moots is over 1 kg heavier too but at 70 +kph you'd never know.
Its funny I've spent all this time and energy building a 5.3kg descending bike and one that would astound you.
It does climb very well the problem is I really don't
Sprints well and handles 180km rides like a dream.
I'm very, very happy with the whole thing.
Big thanks to Jason from Fairwheel for all the trick bits and help. Jure for thcompletely amazing combo that is dialed in perfectly and the Frag for small feats of engineering and component tuning.
We have 2012 Sr mechs and shifters in the post. Ti butterflys for the pedals and GSL brakes
Should be able to find a few more Gs with out compromising the reliability of this true daily ride.
