Great racing if you missed it last weekend:
A frame that grows on me. Seems like it’s getter better and better as closer to the finish it comes. Think AX-Lightness Vial EVO is my dream frame thinking now, a bit more modern then a Time ZXRS World Star Ulteam, a bit more high end then a Pegoretti and more easier to find info about then Paduano Racing.
Two versions. One normal for 2990€ with a 3T Rigida Stealth fork and one Vial EVO D with a THM Carbones Scapula CT:
Not finished with the paintjob or colors yet but so classy. More nice pictures here: Flickr
FRM got some new parts for 2014. Like a 1630g (27,5″), 1720g (29″) Enduro wheelset with carbon fibre rims. FRM Urano Enduro Carbon:
And a new 50mm really low profile stem HS-G50:
Last time it was together it was supposed to be 5906g. Now it was suppose to be 5,623g so 27g overweight But feels okey as it’s 80g lighter than my Cannondale Caad10 was 90g lighter with 20mm higher rims, 2 more gears, heavier fork, setback seatpost and better tires that gains some.
My caad10 then:
And with weight: Light and heavy
Today it has the same seat and QR, Tune Komm-Vor+ and Tune U20. And on both bikes Deda Perforated bar tape. This is how the EVO looks:
Lightest bike I’ve owned
There is always places to improve a product. If you like the look it’s time for looking at the inside. A big difference between cheap and better carbon fibre frames is the inside, more expensive frames are empty and clean inside too. Or check inside a cheap carbon fibre rim.
So B.O.R got some cranksets they want to make later and are testing a new prototype spindle. Alu in the ends and carbon fibre in the middle. Same as Experimental Prototype is making.
Will be interesting if it comes in production and how much the weightsaving is. A new nice blue lockring for it too. Will it save as much as half of the original weight like Experimental Prototype does with spindles for Hollowgram?
Today I collected my ”new” rear derailleur at the post office
Beautiful little part that went on my SuperX instead of the Super Record that goes back on my roadbike. So now almost complete Chorus gearing on my SuperX. Chorus levers, rear derailleur and cassette. Great function for a great price, that’s Chorus.
Will put my SuperSIX Evo together this evening or tomorrow and show you that too. pretty light now.
Sorry for bad updates. Been on the other side of Norway meeting a couple of friends and talking cyclocross, belgian races, Stybar and a lot more. Christmas concert yesterday with some other friends and when I came home my internet connection was too slow. Today I have been training hard. Skied powder and had a great time in Myrkdalen. More about that here: Movescount before lunch and Movescount after lunch. Tried my clock for alpine skiing
If you where at an airport like me yesterday at 15 or in some other way missed the cyclocross you can watch a replay of men’s Scheldecross in Antwerpen here:
