This thread could use some help.
This is the fourth different setup I’ve had on this frame since I bought it in April (although the first setup probably doesn’t count because it was 9sp Tiagra that I stripped off as soon as I bought the bike. Since then it’s been a singlespeed with a WI ENO, then singlespeed with a Forward Components EBB & Mavic Cosmic Carbones.
Now it’s Sram Rival with Easton EA70 wheels. Thanks JP and thanks Chain Reaction!
It had it’s maiden voyage this morning and so far I’m very impressed with the Sram. It’s everything I like about Campag Ergo and I think the double tap lever action is better. And 34/27 is a damn low gear.
If anyone’s considering EA70 wheels, go for it. For ~AUD460 I reckon they’re great. They’re pretty light and they have sealed cartridge bearings. But they don’t come with rim tape and the stock skewers are shit.
The whole bike, as pictured, weighs in at 8.5kg which is a lot lighter than I was expecting, considering that it doesn’t really have any particularly light parts. Should ride pretty well with 23mm slicks too. Hopefully I can avoid rebuilding a roadie.
Total cost for this one is around $1600, including new wheels.
