Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Soloist team frame specs?

Hey all, been searching for a bit on the net but haven't been able to find any info!

Where can I find what size and type front derailer and Stem I need for the soloist team (alu), and what type of BB?!

I know it needs a braze on FD, or at least I think I know.

The Soloist Team is available in 6 sizes between 48cm and 61cm. It's available in an anodized Grey with White logos. It comes with a Cervélo carbon fiber fork, an FSA integrated headset, and a Cervélo Aero Carbon reversible seatpost. It requires an English bottom bracket and a braze-on front derailleur.
As per Competitive Cyclist, hope it helps.

Man you can't have looked to hard.

a) FD is braze on. If you want to run a compact accept that you'll be dremelling
b) Stem is 1 1/8
c) BB is english, past this the spindle length depends on the cranks.

when you've got the chain on the big ring, whats the gap between the top of the ring and the bottom of the derailleur cage? the minimum I could get (using an Ultegra FD) was about 10mm. I needed to dremmel/file out about 5mm to get it within spec.

why do you care what the difference is when on the big ring, to set up the fd the outer wall of the cage should be parralel to the big ring and between 1-2 mm height ( a dime) if the cage is to low it will interfere with your shifting

It's either a 2007 or 2008. I reckon it's a pretty good deal. They sell on Competitive Cyclist for $1100, but I guess for the extra 200 bucks you'll get a warranty

He's only taking about 20% off of retail, you don't know the history of the frame, how it's been stored, how old it is, and it doesn't have a warranty. I'd be wanted 30-35% off retail at least.

I mean if your cool with it pay what you gotta pay, me personally i worked in sales so i'm alot more aggressive when it comes to buying used because i had to be the jerk on the other end selling used gear at 15-20% off.

^ Yeah, they're good frames (I've got one), but there are a million of them out there, so you should be able to find a better deal
