I am new to RBR, however I’ve spent the previous few weeks studying posts from model 4,5,6. There may be plenty of nice information, nevertheless it looks as if the vast majority of the data I am concerned with is over a 12 months previous.
Background: I experience a 58cm 2012 CAAD10. Initially purchased the 105 model, however I’ve been upgrading elements as I’m going. I practice laborious, and wish to race. I desire the sprints and breakaways as a substitute of the mountains and despise bringing my bike to the bike store… It all the time comes again worse then once I dropped it off, so I do all my very own wrenching.
I simply completed constructing my 45mm U-Formed wheelset and I really like them… They experience nice, and really feel quicker than my inventory aluminum wheels.
At this level I am prepared to go away my CAAD10 hooked up to the turbo and I am taking a look at constructing my first (of many hopefully) Chinese language OE bikes.
I am fairly positive that I’ve selected the “Venge” model body *SHOCK* (It appears to be probably the most frequent builds on right here), however I hoped to drag from the huge knowledge on RBR to assist me end this undertaking.
So first issues first, what does the collective knowledge say about provider high quality? I am taking a look at GreatKeen’s GKRF01 (with graphics eliminated) or Dengfu’s FM098. Does anybody have suggestions relating to points with the body or points working with the suppliers? Is there one other provider that you just all would suggest?
