I do like this design!
Especially the junction for the rear triangle and the toptube.
Must be a comfortable ride, is there also place for some more wide tires?
The frame can take 28mm tires. The only place that is narrow is in the gap between the chain-stay tubes.
:shock: Awesome looking machine! So the question everyone will ask is - how are the brakes?
On my first test ride I thought that the brakes didn't perform well and I couldn't se de point. But it turned out that they weren't adjusted properly and after some tweaks they perform really well. The thing that stands out the most is the braking power in wet conditions. I think its foremost in thous conditions the brakes stand out compared to regular brakes. Plus the bike looks a sexier without the standard road brakes
How's the long-bow (the joint toptube-chainstay, that's what it's called right?) doing? Must be real nice to ride on longer rides.
The green colour is too much tho.. The original colour scheme is wayyy better. But anything that floats your boat bro!
You mean the "LONGBOW FLEX STAY SUSPENSION".
Yes the frame is really nice and smooth to ride on. But in the same time i think it is plenty stiff to race on. My longest trip on the bike this summer was 240km long, and I dedn't feel any pain in the "common" places because of the bike.
I agree that the original design it much cleaner but at the same time I think the new design stands out more. But definitely not to everyones liking. But thats the way I like it
Just curious -- what's the forum's policy on a SPONSORED rider posting a bike made by his SPONSOR?
I hope I haven't broken any rules by posting the bike. Since i haven't mentioned the name of the new team sponsor and didn't link to any sites I hope nobody feels offended by this post.
I originally wanted to show you all the possibilities with vinyl and that you with some work can completely change the look of a bike without having to paint it. This vinyl can be taken off in minutes and the bike will look like it did before!
