My first ti bike in 25 years of mtb. What I've been missing!
hehe, enjoy )
I'd replace those a2z QR skewers with some Shimano ones though (or threaded ones), as open type skewers just pretend they work, especially those with rubber or plastic compression part in them.
No rubber or plastic in those QR's,I've used them in other bikes without issues.
But wouldn't mind swapping them for my favorites,USE Spin Stix.
I meant this black part in between lever and metal cup, it looks plastic:
Full metal open type QR skewers do exist, e. g. by Hope. The friction/compression part is brass in these. But they are still inferior to Shimanos in clamping force per force applied to lever (which I was surprised to find out).
I'm feeling a bit awkward for looking so picky but devil is in the details, and the way to fight it, in my experience, is to eliminate most details from a design and maximize quality of the remaining ones. And hey it was your close up photo of the rear hub area that made me focus on that small part. :)
Oh another curious detail: I don't recall seeing a 2-part IS brake mount anywhere else. I wonder how did they manage to weld it on so precisely as to maintain the distance between bolt holes.
And it's nice of them to have used "bullets" to connect the flat dropout with both chain- and seatstays.
hi what is the front gear setup?and is there a hollowtech version cos ye know it weighs a fecking ton if you dont know what is the chainring sizes and front derailleur?
Cove Hustler Build
Couple of pics of my Hustler build. Would love some black stanchioned 150mm Revelations to go on it.
