Saw that, including the pics of the "during" process. He did change the geometry by changing the front fork, but he didn't have the OEM fork, anyway, so it was a moot point. He re-did pretty much everything, and that is one killer bike. I'll bet it rides like it looks.

For info purposes, are the Y Foils sized the same way as a regular road frame? That is, if you ride a typical 54 or 56 you should get the same size Y Foil? It appears a lot of seatpost showing is the proper fit.

Well, sorta I guess. For me I usually ride between 54 to 56 cm frames. Normally I require a setback seatpost to get my saddle where I need it even on a 56 cm frame. On the Y-foil I was able to go with a straight seatpost to get my normal fit. I'd also say it's shorter in the headtube area than I'm used to with most of my bikes. I wound up with a bit more saddle to bar drop than I usually go with because I didn't want a lot of spacers in the headset setup. So while some difference from what I'm used to with all my classic steel bikes it is still my normal size.

Hopefully this makes some sense.

It does. If Robbie rides a 56, that is what I would ride. We are close to the same size/build, but he is a lot better looking and smoother with the ladies.

Since it's carbon, it's my rain bike. This weekend, definitely. A bit of "dirt" on the roads. Yes, DA9000 works just fine in the mucky muck.

It's brother is screaming in horror!



It fact it rolled its self out to the garage, and kicked the Kona, and said. " If I ever come home looking like that I am kicking your ass. You're the mud bike!"

I gave it a bath. I mean a real bath.
In the bathtub. Filthy pig of a bike.
Of course, then I had to clean the tub.
But the bike is clean.
That's the main thing.

I've had the bike drying out since, sans wheels.
Every day, there is a puddle.

I got 10 oz of water out of the wheels.

Now, I think I should take the freehub off.

Probably what that dog was thinking too, "phugly"!

I was on this two winters ago when that dog came out of nowhere and ran through the front wheel permanently wrecking my shoulder. The bike came through in much better shape, LOL!

That ain't no lie. I only ride that bike when I'm forced to try and preserve one of my real bikes from destructive conditions. Even then, I wear dark glasses and surgical mask

Which begs the question after a couple of drinks: kharma?

Now I've grown up, LOL!
