Have been following the (currently) 6 threads on china carbon frames for a while now, and the feed back has been quite positive so was able to pickup one up second hand, but in super good nick.
Im sure people have their opinions on china carbon frames so more then happy to discuss (at length) if people have personal experience either good or bad.
Im no racer, for me, its weekend rides to stretch the legs and get the blood flowing.
Put 100kms on it last weekend for an intial mock up run, make sure everything was ok, and it did great in my opinion. So pulled it apart and just waiting on a few bits to finish it off.
Vinyls by Goran aka user Kaaos who hooked me up with vinyls on the Mcbain. Super happy with the vinyls. If anyone is wondering, ‘Sarto’ is an italian mob who handmake highend carbon frames. I came across them over at RBW and just liked the look of em, i know some people are iffy on putting brands on no name carbon but im happy with how it came out. Was initially gonna go matte rattle can but out of pure lazyness to get it resprayed i stuck with the factory gloss on naked carbon. Kinda glad i did =)
Will be transferring my record 10 spd and fulcrum racing 3s over, picked up a fizik arione and some deda stem and bars on route.
We rode past one of these this morning with Wilier stickers on it.
I like a bit more colour when it comes to bikes, but that looks pretty good. Two guys from my club have ridden one of these each for around two years with no problems. They are built like colombian climbers, but they ride their bikes hard. If it’s cheap enough, you don’t have much to lose.
so my deda bar/stem came in, but stupid me i forgot to look for the correct angle, i assumed it would be the same as the itm’s i borrowed. I want something a little more horizontal, will probably grab the quattro 2
