The design is prone to slipping and is just plain poorly thought out IMO. I seen a pic somewhere with one set up in a two bolt design but I can’t remember where now. Mine slipped on the third ride out about 40 miles from home which was fully awesome, it’s now tighter than I’ve ever done a 5mm(?) Allen key ever in my life and I’m still struggling to trust it. Give me a two bolt Tomson styleee any day, I wouldn’t mind so much if it was lighter but it’s also shit :noidea:

Guess it's just yours then, mines been solid as a rock and never slipped. Are you using a torque wrench or just tightening by feel?

There’s no point using a torque wrench when I’m physically doing the bolt as tight as feel I can get it without wrecking something... but yeah, did first time, calibrated 1/4 drive Snap-On, next time I’ll use the 1/2 drive :lol:

Has anyone ridden the Tere and the Canyon Endurace CF? Comparisons?

Can anyone riding the Tere disc in an XL comment on front end & BB stiffness (also note your weight)? I stumbled upon this brand and at first I thought it was a knockoff BMC Team Machine. But, the geo fits what I am looking for. Price is attractive as well. Just don't want a noodler.

TIA.

I have an Xl Tere Disc. Have been ~105kg while I've had this bike (and thus it is the worst bike up hills I've ever had, the much cheaper bikes I had 15kg ago were a lot faster).
Haven't had any stiffness issues, haven't raced on it but have done a few ~1000w for 10-20s efforts on it and no noodling.

The design isn't pooly thought out, it's pretty standard across several mfgs. It's a common complaint with all of these style 1-bolt designs. In my experience, once you figure out how tight you actually need to do up a 1bolt it won't slip again - probably takes a few goes too.

I do mine at least 8nm

Why / what is the problem with the bike going uphill? Heavy? Other?

I read this as being related to @cyclenutz's weight and not the Tere's performance ...15kg of good living :D


Hey @cyclenutz...is that your bike for sale on TradeMe? If so good luck

Not so much good living as having children and too much work. But yes, totally my fault that the bike is slow up hills. Torckler is much faster on all the local segments on his one.

Yes, selling the Tere as I got a Paralane so I could fit wider tyres and full mudguards (because I love full mudguards, although having a bike for winter training is a bit of a joke right now). Currently in the dismal state of having 5 road bikes, none of which are rideable.
