Really, really nice builds. What are the frame sizes, and what’s the weight on the clincher wheelset, if you have it?
I’m sending my 2012 Z5 SLi back to Boston for a custom paint job after 7000 miles, but these are indeed great machines.
Let us know how the paint turns out. We’d all like to see it. The clincher set weighed in right at 1244g.October 28, 2013 at 6:13 pm #94983
Ypsylon, thanks for your response. I noticed that there are allen bolts behind the rear axle. Was wondering if when tightened they pulled the rear wheel back to tension the chain. Some motocross bikes used such mechanisms in the past.
It’s a BMX chain tensioner that we modified a bit. You’re right, it’s a washer with a bolt that tightens against a plate that is braced on the back of the horizontal drop out. Very similar to what some motorcycles use. They come in a few different types and shapes but they’re all pretty much the same concept.October 15, 2013 at 4:21 pm #94825
These would fit the same frames and forks as the Shimano direct mount brakes, right?
Any idea when these will be available?
We don’t have an official date yet but we’re not expecting them to take long.October 9, 2013 at 3:21 pm #94808September 13, 2013 at 6:27 pm #94674August 30, 2013 at 12:25 am #94575August 29, 2013 at 10:45 pm #94568August 16, 2013 at 5:23 pm #94485August 6, 2013 at 3:11 pm #94440August 2, 2013 at 7:35 pm #94416July 26, 2013 at 8:44 pm #94375July 25, 2013 at 8:42 pm #94354
Showbike material indeed!
How about a video of a spinning wheel?
I can’t really tell, are they tubs or clinchers?
They’re tubulars. Too late for a video, they’re off with Rob for the final build.
AWESOME build! I’ve never ridden Ti spokes. What’s the advantage?
Mainly just weight. They’re actually not Ti spokes though. They’re a specially treated stainless steel.June 28, 2013 at 7:39 pm #94134June 27, 2013 at 5:11 pm #94130
