    Default Re: Wound Up vs Seven 5e forks on SBs

    Took my last ride yesterday before shoulder surgery and decided to roll it old school. Ambrosio Montreal rims / Campy Hubs / FMB Paris Roubaix. A sweet ride and a great classic look. No matter how I set it up, this bike always looks just right.

    Trying out some Zipp wheels this weekend.

    The carbon wheel look is taking me a little getting used to...

    Default First rain ride

    Unable to ride during the week as work has been a real B--- so I was going out rain or shine today. The weather guessers actual called it and we actually (and finally) got some pretty steady rain this AM but no care- the GP with these new-to-me wheels made for a great soggy ride.

    I love this bike!

    The chainstays look beefy, almost "darioesque", but not the seatstays. How is the ride?

    That fender is horrible, but you probably also didn't spend hours tweaking the fender line to achieve perfect alignment...

    It rides very comfortably and it felt even better today after 45 miles trying out the 303's. Carbon, wide rim
    wheels seem to work well with Ti with making a smooth ride even smoother.

    The biggest ride contributor is that the bike fits me well. Probably safe to guess that the skinny stays and a 27.2 seat tube help with compliance. Honestly not sure of the purpose of the fat stays or paid much attention to them but trust that Steve designed those in to compliment the other tube diameters, geometry for the GP's intended purpose.

    No contest here- it is fugly but so convenient. Rain doesnt happen much here so easy on/off is a plus.

    Also beats the ground in dirt stripe on the shorts/jersey and the guys riding behind me appreciate it ;)

    I think the fat stays make a big difference in the ride. No wimpiness, good responsiveness. Ti chainstays have evolved over the years, from thinner ones to much fatter ones like these. Think these are the 7/8" stays. Some ti frames have 1" chainstays now, too. I have a 20 year old Merckx ti frame (Litespeed vintage) with much thinner stays, and although it rides really nicely, it doesn't feel as capable when really jamming up a hill or out of the saddle. My Hampsten SB has the 7/8" stays like the GP. I really like the ride.

    Thanks Thomas! I don't jam up hills as much as I used to but good to know that the fat stays are maximizing power transfer :)

    I looked up a frame purchase email and the seat stays are 1/2" and the chainstays are 1 "

    ^^^ Those dimensions sound about right, Enrico. I compared pics of your GP to my SB (post 1048) and your do look fatter than mine, which I'm pretty sure are 7/8".

    Yep, confirmed again today that jamming up hills is not a forte' but heading back down was just a blast - the Ti with these wheels work nicely together :)
