Lizardskin is the most comfortable tape I've ever used, BUT, they tend to remove all the subtle shape of the handlebar, my beautiful Nitto RB010 looked like crap wrapped on it, on the road handlebar...
street friendly? no
as with most modern Al track oriented frames it's as stiff as it can get
I was not clear, mean as a skid not back pedaling, like ppl do it when riding breakless on the street...
It depends, if you are talking about the Specialized/HED 3 then people don't use it because it's not that stiff. But I've seen people using Vision/Corima 3 spokes.
here's a interesting vid about...
TT Setup, I need to lower the bar but the FSA spacer is getting in my way :notamused:
For anyone looking to buy a high end sprint frame, it doesn't get any better/cheaper than this

it is a steal

the largest TK1 has a 600mm top tube and the TK2 has a 607mm top tube, I would guess that it does fit you don't it?
new shape for the Corima 4 spoke, maybe to distinguish from the new FFWD 4 spoke? Also it seems there's more material at the center of the wheel.

You can choose whatever finish you want, not that awefull painting
I'm making an inquiry do Axman about this frame of theirs. They manufacture frames for a lot of big brands, including Boardman. If price is good it should be a great midrange frameset. I'll update...
it's much more a preemptive question tbh, the design doesn't seem to inspire confidence but I'll give it a try, my carbon hoops are on the way so I can build the wheel, I'll update you guys about it...
So, I've got a pair of hubs but they have those annoying allen bolts, the inside wall of the bolts are kinda flat it feels like they wouldn't grip/torque properly at the dropout. Is there any type of...
I do like the Specialized 74 glove, great leather (that means it's very durable, I eat other gloves for dinner) and there's some padding but it's minimal so it gives confidence on all occasions.
Is there a significant aero benefit between a Zipp 808 to the 404? Do the rim depth (+30mm) make the wheel stiffer?
lots of people use Corima's 3 and 4 spoked wheels and I've saw some Vision 3 spoke and FFWD new 3 and 4 spoked wheels are starting to appear too.
This article by Steve Hogg seems to indicate the cleat positioning for a track sprinter should as forward as possible. Do you guys agree? It's so hard to find good articles about bike fit for track...
Cool to know! Thanks guys
I was not talking about the 2nd rider but the first who swerved on the last moment, she should have slowed down/stopped much earlier since it was a missed start.
not taking the blame from the gate...
so...it was the riders fault (mainly), agreed? I can see that they should have removed the gate the moment they saw that the riders weren't looking but in the end, they weren't looking.
I have the T-One for about a year and I've got to say that I love it. I used to use a Sidi Genius 5, it was fine but it doesn't come near the bont in terms of stiffness, comfort and tightness around...
it seems like a great price, similar to a DF4, how does it compare Carleton, do you have any experience with it Carleton?
I've seen countless teams using the T4 with F+R Comet so it's a non issue for sure?
how a hed 3 is made, was actually surprised by the amount of foam inside of it! I thought it was going to be much less
