I'm new here. So don't blame me
I bought my self in autom an Argon 18 Galium 2014. I got it with a 105group and a fulcrum 5 set. I would like to upgrade some parts now.
First of all I thought of buying a new Wheelset. I live basically in the Alps so I usually ride Mountains. I tested the zipp 202 but I am just to skared of melting the glue while going down a decent. Although I am just 67KG.. I allow looked at the R-Sys SLR C wheel set. But they didn't convince me either. Right now I am leaning to built a custom wheel set.
Let me know your thoughts?
BTW. My bike:
Thank you very much and have a good week!
I'm building myself a set of wheels using Bitex hubs, Velocity A23 alu rims and DT Revo spokes - should come in around 1400grams and under 250€.
I already have a set of 1300g carbon clinchers, but I also don't really like the braking so far, though I am still experimenting with pads. I also ride a lot of alpine passes, and I'm planning to use the alu wheels for the steeper ones.
That idea sounds pretty good! Thank you!
It's a vischacha Saddle bag from relevant design. Here you find the talk of prolly:http://prollyisnotprobably.com/2012/10/about-to-goyonder/#1
and here the link to their website: https://www.revelatedesigns.com/index.c ... s/Viscacha.
I really like the bag. If your intention is to be touring lightweight it is the perfect bag. For me it has enough space for 3 days in Summer. But you can also make it smaller. Only negative about is, that i don't have any space left to mount my rear light and when you are in the climb and you are dancing in the pedals it is a bit habituation. Because if it is real full it will go from the left to the right. But when riding in the saddle, then it is really perfect.
I mount my Serfas Thunderbolt lights to my seatstays like this all the time:
The only problem with this is that up close they may be out of direct view from a driver sitting in their car, but they're so bright, they are still effective.
I've been eyeing the XR-19W's as an all purpose wheel (and also as a project rim to learn how to build wheels). Would you recommend this? I kinda blew out my shimano R510 wheels in a pothole after two years of riding.. (I'm the same-ish weight as OP 145 lbs/ 65 kg)
I am getting more and more addicted to the idea of a bike around 6.8Kg. I know it's still a long way to go..
I typed in all the weights of the parts and now I would like to know from you, with which new part I can save the most weight without spending too much money. I am still a student. So here is the link.
Thanks in advance. The zipp 202 were only borrowed
Best regarded and ride safe!
