On road tyres this narrow, any tread is purely cosmetic, it all comes down to the rubber compound. They calculated that to aquaplane on narrow road tyres you would need to be doing 200mph+

Cycling_chum

No problem glad you like them. Think if you have the clearance 28c way to go for the winter. You'll be doing Paris Roubaix on them next!

Thanks OP first ride on mine today, very pleased. They made the pitted (pitiful?) Sussex roads bearable and depsite going from 23c to 28c I didn’t feel I was any slower. Great find.

Gators are a hard shell tyre, aimed at preventing punctures. These will be softer to allow for control in poor conditions. Don't ride in the gutter you'll be fine on these.

Looking at the spec of the defy, I wouldn't have said it was worth moving too much across. You are better off buying a new groupset and salvaging the seatpost/handlebars/saddle/wheels from the old bike. You may even find some new bikes priced competitively enough to make it worth buying outright as a pre built bike instead of the frame. (planetx is probably your best bet for that)

thel33ter

Most parts should fit, might need different cranks as the BB on this is press fit. Not sure how sizes work on them. Maybe different front mech as well depending on fitting. Cables I assume you'd replace when swapping stuff but might be different lengths/different amounts of outer cable needed, and the chain length might even slightly off but probably ok. Seatpost might be a different diameter. Everything else will be a straight swap.

T_H

What he said. Many people use press fit BBs and are quite happy with them and newer versions don't have creaks. But a threaded BB does the job just fine and the tooling is a lot cheaper.

SaladOA

Also, speaking of cost-engineering, PlanetX Pro Carbon frame costs exactly the same as this full price and weighs a feather less. Worth keeping an eye on their deals as I'm pretty sure they've let pro carbon frames go for a hunna in sales gone by.

SaladOA

Proprietary tools to fit/replace, disposable non-servicable component, will creak more than your nan's knees if not fitted with microscopic precision. They're not bad components per-se, they've just been cost-engineered arguably to the detriment of the consumer.

Again all of this is guessing, not facts. Yes they clearly only assemble in Germany. No one said they made the frames there.

bonzobanana

Can't see much testing equipment to this facility and if you look at the assembly floor there doesn't look like enough capacity to justify full frame development. It's a basic warehouse and assembly area with the only additional process not all companies do is actual wheel assembly. I'd very surprised if they aren't just buying in frames from the far east with their own choice of frame tweaks. Likely all the frame testing and certification is done at the frame manufacturer. Maybe the wind tunnel is just out of site at the Rose facility. https://www.pinkbike.com/news/rose-bikes-tour-germany-2016.html You just seem like another gullible person who sucks down all the marketing information hook, line and sinker. Surely any reasonable and sane person would give the credit to the quality of the frame and its technology to the actual manufacturer. You know the company that actually developed the technology, the manufacturing facility and actually makes the product. Your mindset is just one I completely reject, there is little logic or fairness in it but then I tend to reject marketing information and try to look at the realistic full picture. Companies in the far east like Giant and Merida are manufacturing exceptional high quality carbon frames and companies like fuji-ta are producing very good quality more budget aluminium and carbon frames. We will have to agree to disagree.

trickytree1984

I didn't say it was untrue. I said I didn't agree. But here are a couple if things that you are wrong on since you ask: Rose frames are designed by them and made for them. Not just sourced from China. You find another manufacturer making something as innovative as the new X lite six. The frame is so light and stuff and has been wind tunnel tested by rose. Comparing your 62 quid claris bike to a 1200 quid ultegra one is so ridiculous it's funny Comparing Halfords bikes to this is just funny As for the rest of what you said.... absolutely none if it makes any sense nor is any of it based on any fact what so ever. You are assuming with no basis whatsoever. What was the Indian aluminium\folding framw ramble about. How in any way was that anything to do with a Ribble carbon frame? It's not the same thing by any stretch and you have no clue if they make the Ribble frame. It's disingenuous to suggest so.

bonzobanana

You not agreeing with it doesn't make it untrue and stating it's a ramble hardly adds to your viewpoint as you appear to be nothing more than a childish keyboard warrior. Is there any actual point I've stated that you can claim is false?

I won't pay more than £50 quid on Gumtree for a similar bike. Gumtree is full of blatantly nicked bikes usually in South or East London

Kern_ORiordan

Well, collection from Preston is always an option. Fortunately I don't live far away

bonzobanana

I always look at the whole package, I know you can upgrade later but my point is it's better to get it right at the beginning so I would see the full build weight as important for me personally if I was buying such a bike. I've seen some sites where they actually state weights component by component which maybe is over the top but an overall weight and frame weight seems important to me if you are buying a lightweight carbon bike. I don't agree about durianrider his viewpoint is a breath of fresh air compared to the sponsored and paid for youtube channels which never contradict or question manufacturer's claims as they would be commercially mad to do so. I'm certainly not saying I agree with all he says but seems a genuinely independent viewpoint. Other sites bypass important questions or create video articles that warp reality somewhat to appease the companies that fund them. I guess I prefer durianriders more extreme reviews where he really praises what he likes but gives poor products a huge kicking it's easier to process than those sites that are avoiding criticism of products and you end up unsure about how good or bad a product really is and it becomes a waste of time watching it. Durianrider might say something like great bike but you really don't need to spend this money, the gains are very small over <insert bike name half the price> etc. He'll give a time advantage over a distance or more likely watts as indicated by Strava and you end up with a good picture of how much faster that bike is for its additional 3,000 extra cost. He may even indicate advantages to the cheaper bike, strength, more height adjustable saddle, more durable wheels etc. Sort of things that other sites may avoid doing. He has a pretty strong moral compass being vegan which I admire too. To summarise I would certainly say a better source than a sponsored site even if they claim it doesn't effect their reviews.

If you’re worried about pressfit bottom brackets look up “wheels manufacturing”. I have a BBright bottom bracket from them that has been flawless, and a 2 min job to change bearings. Expect to pay about 4+x the price of the disposable press fit ones though...

muhasib

Most problems are with creaking and noisy bottom brackets as it's easier to align the bearings perfectly if they are inserted with a threaded bottom bracket, it's cheaper to make frames with a press fit BB though. There is now a move back to threaded bottom brackets after these issues. If you do a search on 'Press fit bottom bracket problem's or 'noisy bottom bracket' you should get an idea of the issue. Wider tyres are more comfortable as you can run at a lower pressure so absorbing more bumps and again the move is towards 28mm on normal road riding whereas 5 years ago most road bikes would be on 23mm as it was believed (wrongly) it was more aerodynamic and faster.

mdentz

can you explain the downsides of a press fit bottom bracket please? do people usually go up to 28mm tyres for the winter or on more 'commuter' based routes through the city?

muhasib

Unfortunately it's a press fit bottom bracket and maximum width of tyres that will fit is only 25mm. Still if you buy it you can sing 'Excavating Rita' I’m on Shimano Ultegra now, ain’t you heard?

Defo not, dangerous. Brakes and gears in different positions. One reason this looks cheap for a 105 group set is no sti lever / shifters.

eagleon

Silly question, but anyone know if it's worth getting this bike for road use? Looking to get a 105 and this seems to be the cheapest

T_H

I would agree with you. You get more feed back from aluminium. I've found that when I'm giving it full beans on an aluminium frame, you can tell from the feel of the ride. The opposite could be said of carbon. I actually got an ally tt bike frame and did a budget build to see if I could get on with it. I loved riding it and the position on it was very comfortable. When I upgraded to a carbon frame the ride was so smooth. I was going along thinking I wasn't going very fast because it didn't feel fast like with ally. I then look at my garmin to see I'm going 23mph.

Johnmcl7

What brakes have you used in the past? The difficulty with a lot of bike parts is that it comes down to rider preference, some people don't like the quick grabby nature of the Shimanos and the new Guide brakes seem to have quite a few fans after Sram's rocky reputation with the Avids and DB's. I have the inferior Sram DB5's that came with a bike and they're not great but on the other hand they work fine and it's a lot of hassle to replace them. I've got a set of SLX's ready to go on it and should really do it while that bike is on its winter break.

pete_21

Very good brakes, can't go wrong for this price.

crypt_keeper

Great stoping power, had them on a jump bike, it was more then enough and then on trials bike for a while not the way to go duh, cost me about £140 at the time and then I laid my eyes on magura mt5 for like £160 and all I can say that i should have got magura from the get go... No way to compare them two, magura takes it all For this price shimano is a good choise for a decent MTB

Mark_A

My YT Jeffsy came with Sram Guide R brakes, which I have yet to try, but have read they are not amazing. Would these be worth getting to replace the Guide R brakes and then sell them on ebay?

Pay the extra few quid. Get folding. Rigid are a nightmare.

alfrado

Agree Durano’s are a great tyre. I use folding Durano Raceguard for winter bike. Puncture resistant and grippy in the wet.

LadyEleanor

Wiggle Prime Armour folding tyres have a near full band I think. 317 grams weight in the 25mm. Price has shot up but CRC currently have them them at the old price. They look a near match to the Btwin Resist 9. Note that buying 2 likely misses the Quidco £2.50 cashback. 3 covers it. CRC deduct a large amount for postage from cashback values. I use them on the rear wheel.

utigers

Check your current tyre. It should be 700c the other number is the width, which is up to you.

The 510 is an ok crankset, but obviously not as good as the 105 5800

fergee

Nearly all bikes at a price point are a compromise. I have a 105 synapse, but the crank is FSA. As mentioned before brakes, wheels and Crank are normally the areas that companies skimp on to get below a certain price point. But 105 is a great group set so I wouldn’t be too bothered that it wasn’t full Ultegra,

seantaylor6627

Do some hunting on ‘tinternet,can get better spec for the same money

As jas says. Plus it's not all ultegra. Bits are 105 too. But hey it's under a grand...

jascycling

Built to a price point, The groupset has cheap brakes, cheap crank and is massively let down by very cheap and heavy wheels. Its always the biggest compromise on most bikes around this price point. You are best looking for a 2017 bike in the sale from a major brand this time of year

Great spot OP, thanks.

YouTalkinToMe

Yup, for city riding they're all right. As long as you're sensible with your cornering then you ought to be fine. But when it comes to descending down -15% hills around corners and braking for hairpins in the wet you want softer rubber which is grippier.

robodan918

for city commuting, the gator hardshells are perfect I used to get lots of punctures on my stock tyres, fewer on gatorskin, and none ever with gator hardshell I've used wet/dry, and I just "drive the conditions" - i.e. going slower and being more careful when it's wet and icy. Never had a problem, but it stands to reason that tougher tyres will be made of harder rubber, which loses grip more easily in the cold and wet

robodan918

that's gatorskin gator hardshell is better in my experience

Brookydave

Some years ago Gatorskin were very slippery tyres and I used 4 seasons, Then I and a few mates noticed 4 seasons started to go granular, pick up road debris and get punctures. So I went back to Gatorskins about 18 months ago - what a difference. Mine - 25 front 28 rear have stacks of grip now - enough to lift the back wheel in the wet when it all goes wrong on the Lakes /Yorkshire hills. Just a balance of opinion!
