I'm wondering if others have encountered this issue, and maybe there's some changes I could make to turn this bike into a decent rider...
Raleigh 1992 Team Technium, Ultegra 6500 full drivetrain minus hubs which are Mavics..
The bike feels amazingly slow and dead underneath me when I ride it, stiffness isn't a huge issue for me as I ride a modern track bike the majority of the time these days.. but to give an example, over the same route with a different older heavier road bike the trip will take 40-50 minutes, on the technium 50+ minutes minimum..
I'll say it again the bike feels dead under me! I did switch out the replacement hi-ten fork that came with the frame for a nashbar CF 1" which to my knowledge shouldn't add to the dead feeling at all, I can't figure out if the frame is just too damn stiff for me? And if that's the case why is it so slow? Or maybe this is all in my head?
So any suggestions? Anyone else have this problem too?
