Strengths:    Stiffness, weight, price.

Weaknesses:    None really. It's better than I expected for a frame at this price.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted a good aluminum frame for crits and other races where I didn't want to have to worry about replacing my frame if I crashed. CC had a special on this frame so I bought one. The large fits me perfectly at 6'2" with a 33" inseam. I built the frame with SRAM Rival components and slapped my old Easton Circuits on and went for a long ride. The bike feels great. Being aluminum, there is a bit more vibration, but it feels quite solid and very stiff. Total build weight was 17 lbs. Not too shabby.

Most of the time I'll likely be riding on pretty flat surfaces, sometimes rolling, and rarely big climbs. The majority of my training will be under 40 miles. If you need anymore information about me ... Read More »

Campagnolo Centaur compact, change 50 chainring to 52 or 53...is it possible?

Hello all, I would like to change my 10sp Campagnolo Centaur CT 2007 chainset (Ultra Torque) from compact to standard. Nevertheless, it costs a lot and I was thinking, if it is possible to change only the big chainring. I have a 50 teeth chainring and if I could swap it with a 52 or 53 would be per ... Read More »
