Perhaps I'm seeing it wrong, but won't the crabon fibre brake lever go KAPOW on the first fall when the bar spins around and the lever hits the top tube?

You are, my Juicy ultimates are going on the third season and they have stood up to lots. People think carbon fiber will break if you look at it funny, but it's pretty stout stuff.

I agree that it's pretty solid, but with a hard smack during a crash due to top tube / lever interference I can see something giving way. Since the tubes are really solid, I'd see the lever and/or its pivot failing.

It would only happen if there was actually interference with the top tube and brakes. Beyond that, the cassette alone on that bike has a $300 MSRP, I doubt the owner is all that concerned about slightly more fragile carbon brakes. :P

I imagine there is. If you look at the photos the stem has a negative rise, is on 10mm of spacer, and the levers point almost straight downwards. With the flat bar I'd figure there's 25-30mm of space between the top tube and bar when it's rotated backwards. I just quickly measured my Elixir CRs and the tips of the levers stick out a good 95mm from the bar at full reach.

The levers will twist around on the handle bar before they would brake, and if you crashed hard enough to break the brake levers then that is probably the least of your concerns. I have already gone down once hard with my XX brakes and they shook it off better than I did.

Don't you have carbon fiber brake levers? I'm guessing you run 'em nice and high.


Sweet bikes btw.

Yep, Elixir CRs. Stuff's set up so that it won't hit the tube when I fall, though. I tend to be picky about putting things together so they are long-term durable and maintainable.

I'm not saying that the durability of CF is in question here, more the setup of the bike itself as it appears to me that it's not designed to provide appropriate clearances.

78 degree seattube with a 2cm setback post cap and the seat slid back on the rails? Hmmmmm... There are many positioning factors to consider in a TT bike.

Just to clarify, that tubeset from Deda is not custom at all, they are a stock tubeset that gets mitered and glued into the aluminum lugs. The Lugs are the custom aspect of this frame, everything else is basically a kit. There are very few builders who actually make custom carbon tubes for each rider. In fact there are very few builders that have the capacity to do anything "custom" with a ti tubeset other than cut and weld.

Not that Scott needs any defending, but that bike is a work of art, and if that's the geometry the rider wanted, that's what he got. Oh yeah, made in Michigan by a local hero, great rider and all- around good guy. Let's see, what brands do you sell? Oh yeah, and where are they made? I thought it was a bad business practice to denigrate another company's product?
