I'm really happy to hear that, thanks!
Regarding the saddle shape - basicly I could make it wider. Only there is a problem with the hole in the centre, because as long as I laminate the seatpost to the saddle shell I can't make it with a hole, only with a channel.
I already started with a new design for my saddle combos, basicly that it would be a saddle with integrated saddle rails, but didn't managed yet to make a prototype that I would be happy with. As soon as I make it I'll post some photos. In that case I could bond on any saddle (also with cutout). So hopefully when I'll have some more free time I'll make it, I'll for sure keep you updated. It would also add some comfort, basicly it would be the same as using an ordinary saddle, only that it would be much lighter. Anyway, as soon as I'll have some news I'll let you know, unfortunately at this moment I'm just to busy with other duties (study,..), but I'll for sure keep you updated!
I also made the first test rides with prototype 5
What I like the most (compared to PT4) is the new Sram Red groupset! Otherwise I can already say that the frame is a bit stiffer, but will write more about it as soon as I make some more kilometers. I managed to add stiffness on the area where I wanted, so I guess this one is pretty much the best that I can make with tube-to-tube. For next project I really want to start with monocoque, but we will see, depends from my financial status. Otherwise I'm also thinking to start with a tube-to-tube TT frame...hmmm..?
I have an interesting concept how to make a t-t-t TT
) frame, and I could make those moulds by myself. Monocoque is unfortunately to complex to start with them in my own workshop, and of course it's also very expensive... So there are bad and good sides for both, t-t-t and monocoque. For a TT frame it's maybe even more important to be able to make a custom geometry. I know a lot of cyclists who have problems with their fit on different TT frames, I'm also one of them..any opinions are welcome!
