  • Can someone tell me which chainsets will fit this Bottom Bracket BB91?
    Is it all Shimano, or just some ? Do the triples fit
    Which FSA's

    Any help gratefully received

    Oh, frame arrives tomorrow...

    So, having avoided buying one of these...

    How much better would the frame have been than my existing 2010 Boardman Team Carbon...?
    And how should I quantify 'better'?

    Well mine is coming on Wednesday and I saw a CR 1 on the road today and it looked nice.

    If I didn't commute I would not get a chance to ride it at all, its too hard finding the time with 2 young kids.

    I am undecided towards spec, I would like to get a triple - any thoughs? While tiagra is cheaper I think I may just suck it up to a 105, unless I can pick up a nine speed ultegra setup.

    No idea on finishing kit but I definately what to run 25 - does anyone know if you can?

    The Scott frame is made of higher quality carbon (HMX carbon - Scott's highest level of carbon) and it's probably stiffer than the Boardman. Also I'm sure the geometry is probably racier despite it being more "sportive" orientated than the Addict. The list price for the Scott frame only is more than £2k and an entire Boardman Team Comp is about £1300 but when push comes to shove I suppose it depends on how the bike feels to you....

    It has arrived and it is a thing of beauty!

    Now on to the fun of building my first bike. Unfortunately can only spec her, yes her, with a lower level of components than she deserves since blowing the budget on the frameset. But thats what upgrades are for.

    Woohoo, box sitting by my desk. As it would be inconsiderate of me to take it on the Jubilee line at rush hour I'd better go have a pint in the pub first to let the crowds die down. Plus if i'm half cut then I won't be as bothered by the lecture I'm about to receive when I get home with a large box with the word carbon written on the end of it. :roll:

    useful to know what the box looks like as I need to think up a realistic excuse / idea of something else so I don't get rumbled by the better half. :-D

    Well they were out of stock and then they were back in stock so I quickly bought one, just in case. At that price I thought it rude not to :D

    However lots of peeps looking at the same kit and I feel like doing something a little different - maybe campagnolo if there is an adapter for the bb ?

    I'm going Campag with mine. I emailed Paul at Westbrook about it and not only did he say it was a simple case of swapping out the standard Shimano press fit bottom bracket to a Campagnolo one, but he said he'd add one to my order free of charge :D

    Mine's still not arrived and I need to leave in an hour :(

    I would like to go Ultegra, but that appears to be £600 where as 105 can be had for 400, and i'm sure someone on here said he bagged a set for 275.....?

    I have some basic wheels, so will put them on for this year I reckon, so it's a 'rolling' chassis as it were, then look to bag some bargain wheels in the next 9 months.

    I have nice new carbon bars to swap over from my felt, and a new carbon seatpost as well as a new fizik cx saddle intended for the felt.

    I have some basic stems of differing length, so may mess around with those until I know what length, but am anticipating 100mm.

    Mine has arrived, it was left outside the back gate apparently :shock:

    Pleased to here everyone seems impressed with them, I am in France but have asked my brother to open the box and check it all seems intact and that the forks, headset and bb are included.

    Would love to see some pics of other peoples deliveries though!

    This, with nobs on. It's by far the best bargain, so pleased with the bargain spotted thread as i'd never be able to afford the 'real' price. 8)

    Nice! Same here really, IF I had ever managed to justify a spend of 2 or 3k on a fully built up bike, it probably would have been something else.

    Have you got the forks.... ?

    You people are not helping with all this 'ooh, it's so nice and light' now that it's back in stock. I might have gone and asked Flubit to find me a cheaper price...

    Have bought a Dura-Ace 7900 chainset and 7800 Shifters, Front & Rear mechs off the classifieds on here. Don't really want to pay £100+ for 7800 calipers, when I bought my Genesis Equilibrium I upgraded the calipers to these (which I was told at the time were rougly equivalent to Ultegra). I've been really pleased with them so was thinking of getting a pair for this build but am not sure if they are compatible with the 7800 shifters and also not sure if they are specifically for bikes with a large drop (i.e. to clear mudguards). What do you think guys?

    Yeah i've had my eye on a Pearson for ages but fully built it was £2500. I can get something lighter and to my eyes almost as pretty for probably around £1500 with this as the base.

    The forks are in the box. All the bits are included, Ritchey integrated headset. That weight is with the dropout spacer included and the BB fitted. It really is sooo light, the matte finish is fantastic but I suspect will be an absolute bugger to clean. Oh well. :D

    From the bargain thread iirc, flubit came in at 480 which is not as good as the cashback you would get from quidco/top cashback.

    Surprised they are back in stock in every size, I wonder how they are laying their hands on so much stock.
    I am half tempted to order a 56 in case my 54 turns out to be too small, and just sell on whichever one does not fit...

    I would urge you all to complement the frameset with some fast wheels. You won't regret it one bit. It'll go like sh1t off a stick.

    This is Scott #4 for me now! Will sell the complete Speedster and CR1 Team Frame keeping the CR1 SL and Addict R3. I guess that will make up for the cost of this frame but now I am so tempted to replace all the parts I will be carrying over from the CR1 Team. Now deciding which one to commute on...


    ...and how to explain to the wife that the other bike was always grey, not white :roll:

    It's the same logic women use when buying shoes off the interweb. Therefore, it must make sense.

    How tall are you? My old CR1 was a 56cm and I'm 5'11/ 6ft.
