C60 for Criteriums | Street Bike, Biking Boards

Sure, they’re getting uncommon as a result of highway bikes have been shifting towards crit geometry over the current years.

When carbon happened, corporations saved attempting to make chain stays as quick as doable for stiffness. One thing fully not wanted with correct carbon engineering. I requested a pair corporations about why they’ve such quick chain stays on carbon highway bikes and have all the time gotten a response about aesthetics.

In addition they include backside brackets too excessive for probably the most half. No highway bike wants or ought to have a BB drop of 68mm. That is ridiculous, nevertheless it’s virtually business commonplace. Fortunately some bikes now a days are switching again to round 72-75mm, the place they belong.

Anyway, what’s left now a days as a crit bike? Possibly the Allez Dash?
