- New plastic Turner
Just picked up my Czar frame! Really rather excited! It’s going to be a large house ornament for a while though, as absolutely nothing from my old bike will transfer across to this frame. Great excuse for a brand new build though.
Build will be XC race orientated. XO1, RS Sid, carbony bits. Not sure on the wheels yet though. Probably a pair of Stans unless there are some better recommendations?Posted 4 years ago
A carbon frame surely deserves some carbon rims? Something like light bicycle carbon rims on dt swiss 240 hubs should do the job nicely.
I’d love a set of DT hubs, but they aren’t in the budget. I might look into building up a set of the light bicycle rims, but I’m not sure how much time I will have to do that in the next month. At this point I just want to get parts on it and get riding!Posted 4 years ago
Is it a large?i was about to pull the trigger but silverfish now out of stock!
Yes, it’s a large. I sat on the medium and the large, and it felt a lot less cramped on the large. I’m 5’10”. Rumour is that these are selling as fast as they can make them. I hope they don’t get too popular!!Posted 4 years agoroneSubscriber
There’s 7mm difference between the large czar and large flux. I believe the czar designed to be run with a longer stem. My spearfish large is also 8mm longer.
I’m 6ft, and the large fits well though I do like a longish top tube. I’m very happy with the fit of the czar, the balance between fun, stability and speed is terrific.
It’s interesting that my longer top tube bikes feel lardy and slow to turn now. I guess there are lots of factors to make a whole.Posted 4 years ago
