What is the weight difference between the carbon shield version and the non-carbon shield version?
Did you ever resolve this?
Hey it’s worth a shot. How about the crankarm hitting the front derailleur? O.k., if it happens when you’re in the little ring, then probably not.
This is an all ages forum and we ask that cursing be kept to a minimum and used only when appropriate.
When would cursing be appropriate on this forum? Wouldn’t it be better to just state that cursing is not allowed?
With part of your pedal breaking off http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=107093&start=165#p1052919 a day after your post above, your bike should be even lighter now.
While the actual load doesn’t matter because the response of the structure is linear.
Do you know this to be the case, for all (tested) stems, over all (reasonable) possible loads? Might some stems be more linear than others?
Regarding the DT 240 rear, FWB wrote
They also offer a star ratchet upgrade which doubles the amount of teeth cutting the amount of movement prior to engagement by about half and shaving another 10 grams of weight from the hub. In my opinion this upgrade should be a standard feature in the hub.
Does the tar ratchet upgrade increase the drag? Leaving aside noise (is the upgrade noisier when freewheeling?) and cost, is there any downside to the upgrade?December 19, 2013 at 6:51 pm in reply to: Up Close with the New Campagnolo Over Torque Ultra #95243
How does BSA OT compare in stiffness to steel axle BSA UT and to titanium axle BSA UT? Are the provided comparisons only applicable to BB30?
Speaking of which, any word on FWB”s deal to bring the EE crank to market (whoops, let that slip – don’t tell anyone)? O.k., just speculating, haha, but check out the posts by madcow and me on http://fairwheelbikes.com/c/forums/topic/eepacenti-crank-cancelled/ .
Got a response from FWB via FB rather than on the FWB forum? Is this forum almost extinct?
Question: Is it important to you whether the brakes work reliably when you really need them (emergency stop or slowdown)?
Well, I guess madcow can’t tell us more about any potential new partnership.
Per http://www.bicycleretailer.com/product-tech/2013/09/12/ee-cycleworks-looking-partner-make-crank#.UjIKgz9BLfg , “We will be re-evaluating the EE crank relative to the current competitive crank offerings as well as what might be the next step in bringing it to market. We are open to the prospect of a new partnership,” Edwards said.
The announcement says that Pacenti has canceled it, but is there any prospect that it could yet live under EE Cycleworks, perhaps to include the possibility of some other deal being worked out?
Or will the EE crank do down in the annals of vaporcranks, joining such illustrious company as the original (alu) ZeroG crank and the M5 crank (I lost track of how many times they were weeks from production)?
How do you like the Ultralite pedals? Have you gone back and forth (on different bikes?) between Ultralite and some other pedals, and if so, do you get “confused” in the heat of the moment as to how to unclip? Are you using fixed or float (Ultralite) cleats?
I like the lion decal, but the head tube badge is dead weight (how much?) you’ll be carrying when shouldering the bike. I wonder if it deleteriously impacts aerodynamics?
