For those who like insightful information from the world of frame building need to check this out…
“My personal bikes are always a testing ground for me, not only for parts but also frame tubing, forks, and frame building components. This bike has modern carbon bars, seat post, which I have not ridden before, and a modern 1.0 ENVE fork, so I wanted to see how they felt compared to the aluminum bars/post and steel (fork) that I have been riding recently.
The frame is also much stiffer than my traditional road bike with a 35 mm double oversized down tube and custom-tapered 28.6-31.7 mm seat and top tube. This allows for a standard 27.2 seat post, which is more common and comfortable than the odd 30.6 post the 31.7 seat tube requires.”
