I've been riding one for around about a month now (440 miles) and I have found it amazing. It feels very fast on climbs and decends wonderfully. My setup is:zoo00oom said:
The bike currently weighs about 24 pounds. (Large frame with eggbeaters)betexccomp said:thanks for the review, I've been looking at these myself. Have you weighed it yet? it seems like it should be pretty light. I ride a specialized fsr xc and it's nice but way to heavy. Thanks bete
I was just in their shop over the weekend talking to them about this. They had one of their riders crack the carbon fiber on it so they decided to through it in the vice and see how hard it would be to break with the CF compromised. He said they played with it for "a long time" and couldn't break it.zoo00oom said:How did you protect the chainstay? That's the one question mark for me. Since it is magnesium wrapped with carbon fiber, it seems that any damage to the carbon fiber shell could really affect the performance.
Any input on this would be appreciated.
Thanks for you post!
