Would you run those in the mountains ?

I always was informed carbon clincher wheels in the mountains fail


I love the way carbon breaks over aluminum, never had problems with carbon braking. Aliluminum breaking for me at least I don't like the way aluminum bites before breaking throwing your handling off a bit while cornering, carbon is smooth breaking sort of like faded breaks from heat but in a good controlled way. And I have always had brake chattering with aluminum breaking surfaces

What brake pads were you using? Switch to Kool-Stop salmon brake pads.

Nice looking build. :thumbup:

justaute wrote:A couple of photos. Finished the build. Even with 28mm tires (Hutchinson Sector), the total weight is still impressive. I will soon go back down to 25mm tires and that should drop another 80-100 grams or so. Also, the skewers are stock Campy. Yes...I mix brands. :)

Weight= 6.76 kg (14.9 pounds)

Is that gap between the fork and the bottom of the headtube supposed to be there?

The fork situation has been rectified. Should not have used the extra race that came in the box.

Short answer = No.
Long answer = depending on the wheel/tire combination.

I had Sector 28 on my Bora and I had ~3mm of space between the tire and the seat-tube. No issues on the chainstays. As of now, I have Schwalbe Pro One 25mm on the same wheels. Not sure if it could accommodate 28mm version of the Pro One.

how is the stiffness on your fuji sl I'm planning on getting one soon. And how would you you compare it to other carbon bikes that you have ridden stiffness wise?? Sweet build by the way.
