Wow. Beauty. Enjoy be safe. Keep sharing your ride experiences with us.I picked up a sage green Turbo Creo SL Comp Evo yesterday, after a long process. It was a toss up between the Willier1Hy and the Creo...
I've ridden this just inside the village and I'll be riding high soon.
@arnoldc didn’t you just buy this nice bike? How many miles have you ridden?If there's one thing I hate about my Creo SL Comp Evo is the Sunrace cassette. I already questioned its inclusion in a $6,500 bike and my problematic shifting experience on the first ride supports my apprehension.
There are two cogs (I think 5 and 7) that has one teeth each with a bad tolerance that makes the tuning somewhat frustrating. In the end, I was successful. I also found the cable to be slack by about 3 mm, which was easy to adjust.
The photo shows how battered unevenly, the cogs are. This Sunrace cassette has to go, I will replace it with Deore XT 11-42 cassette.
I thought about it, but I'm sure Specialized will just send another Sunrace. As to the tuning, that area is not a big deal for me as I assemble my own bikes (except a few, built bikes including the Creo SL)
We're in the same line of thinking. The front wheelset weighs 1,140 grams, the rear 1,401 grams. That's 2.5 kg for both and I'm sure those are the heaviest wheelset I've owned. I'm looking at several options but only if I can cut down the weight by at least 1 kg. By the way, the Pathfinder tires weigh 480 grams each. My Clement LAS on the Niner RLT Steel is lighter at 290 grams.I wanted a 2nd set of wheels for the bike and if I get a 2nd set built I'm going to get a SRAM xD on the rear wheel so I can fit a cassette that goes down to 10 teeth. I find the 46-11 combo is not a high enough gear for my liking.
I have a 50-11 combo on my Cervelo and that is fine, but this bike has a motor to help me spin the gear so even on Eco I'm finding I'm spun out on a 46-11. I'd like to get a bigger chainring, but it looks pretty tight in there. I'm not sure you can go any bigger and even if you could maybe a 48, I'm skeptical a 50T would fit in there. So I need to look at the cassette and SRAM has some MTB cassettes that are 10-42. They aren't cheap, but hey the whole bike was pretty pricey.
I'll find out tomorrow if the tuning is better when loaded.Wow. Riding hard. You should on this bike.
I have a Vado 5 with almost 2,000 miles and the cassette is in better shape.
