My Flyte SRS-3... Porntastic

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I bought the Flyte fork for my build and it came without the decals. Full carbon and looks great.

Anyone remember this old thread and when there was a bit of a halabaloo about Flyte frames going really cheap? I never did build one and found my unbuilt frame in storage still looking brand new!

Decided to do a 1X11 build with SRAM Rival components throughout. Its got Chinese Superteam decal-less wheels with a Fizi:k Arione saddle. The yellow bar tape matches my old speed plays and yellow carbon brake pads

edit: oh and the gearing is a 44t chainring with a 11-42 cassette (my neighborhood is very hilly).

Nice build. I had one and built it up as a commuter (was horrible) with Campagnolo. then stripped it and made it my "cheap" crit bike. SRAM Rival build. Gotta say it sucked. Just a harsh ride. had a Salsa Podio as well and that was a much nicer ride with better handling and lighter to boot.

I ended up giving it to a friend and local guy (Para cyclist on the US team for years) when he wrecked his and needed a frame ASAP. even he hated it and ditched it within a coupe of months.

I hope you enjoy yours. Could be fun to go back and ride that time machine.

If you want to improve the ride on that thing, you could trim 2" off that seat tube for a start, and maybe throw in a shim and run a skinny carbon post.

Carbon wheels and a carbon fork help with the harshness. I feel some bumps but I usually ride the bumps standing.
