My CS-N019 build
« on: February 01, 2016, 07:58:34 AM »
At the suggestion of others I am going to start a thread for my build
I ordered frame , 100mm wheels with SRAM hubs, stem , handle bars and seat post from Carbon Speed. Just got notice that everything has shipped.
Plan is :
XX1 cassette, chain, derailleur
190 mm Race face hub and 28 chain ring , probably turbine cause next is so much xtr a
Shimano XTR trail brakes and 160 rotors Front and Back
Will go tubeless ( have it on My mountain bike without problems)

Tires ? Anyone know if snowshoe 2XL will fit ? It's a fat bike .. Wanna be fat !!

Comments and criticism welcome.  ???

Whatever tire you're getting, make sure you look up the actual size mounted on the rim width you've got. Looked up the Schwalbe 4.8"s and discovered they only measure 4.4. Guess that matches up with my 4.5" Snowshoes which only measure 4.0". Gotta love what a wonderful work of fiction tire sizing is - and has always been.

I hear the Specialized fat tires are really good. If you value traction above all else, then the Bud/Lou combo is supposed to have phenomenal amounts of traction, but they're heavy and roll slow. This is just what I heard when I was looking for myself. I want to try _big_ tires to see if getting closer to 5" helps with this "flotation" promise, considering the 4" tires didn't help me ride anything that I wouldn't have been able to ride with the 29x2" tires. Figuring my weight needs more width, but at this point a pair of tires close to 5" are gonna run well over $200. Yikes.

So, dunno on the tires... good luck! :D

Should be a great build! Based on rvc's experience with the same frame, you should be really happy!

In looking at my headset , peter Xu tells me that my carbon fork has an integrated crown race such that the carbon fork sits right against the bearing. The "integrated crown race " seems a little rough ,
Does anyone have any experience with this or suggestions ??

Heh, I'm experiencing headset issues on the CS-041 that I got for my wife. Maybe post some photos about the spot that looks rough?

got it all done. tried to post final photo but site says upload folder full. my photo is 342 KB which is smaller than has to be, will try again later. Headset seems good and tight, Bottom bearing sits right on carbon fork ( integrated crown race) looks and feels great. will post more later and some lessons learned. All in all , went together without a hitch.

Rode 10 miles on Snowmobile trails yesterday . components worked great . After Ride had to re tighten headset and am trying to figure out "creaking" sound in BB or crank( goes away when stop pedaling or when pedal hard) doesn't appear to be any play in spindle ?? 

Things learned :
Frame is well thought out.Hydraulic line to rear brake  runs easily thru the frame with no trimming . Rear derailleur cable runs down inside  frame , then outside frame under BB and back in chain-stay to exit by derailleur.
Front fork with integrated crown race appears to be working well. ( time will tell) I used headset from Carbonspeed. If it loosens routinely, i may have to try another. Front hub has 2 caps that adapt to fork, they are loose and have to be careful when removing wheel as could easily lose them . They are supposed to have a ring washer to help hold them in place, mine dont . Peter ??

i mounted surly bud and Lou tires , have great clearance with frame and chain, (Raceface for 190 rear spindle ). I dont think snowshoe 2XLs would clear frame for anyone out there thinking of that.

Wheels went tubeless without a hitch using gorilla tape. I bought latex strips from Fattystripper.com ( firewall at work wont let me go to that website  ;D)after watching his video and will mount them later.
My final weight came  in at 27 lbs including platform pedals (Chromag contact ).
still cant post picture cause "upload folder is full " at this website.
