Frame Selection Help
« on: April 28, 2017, 08:06:44 PM »
Hey, I'm looking at a new frame to move all my existing running gear onto (Ultegra & Kysrium Elites).

I was looking at the LTK118/FM686 because this appears to be the frame Ribble are using for their new SL which gives me some confidence in the frame. However, when I contacted Longteng the assistance pointed me at their LTK036, stating that it uses EPS and a BB86, both of which result in a stronger, stiffer and lighter frame (790g I think).

Does anyone have any knowledge of the LTK036?

I'm basically looking for a frame for training and climbing rides, about 300km per week.  I don't want a bone shakingly stiff bike, but I want something with great power transfer. Also, if there are more appropriate frames or vendors I'm open to direction/advice.
