Have you ride it? What do you think of the Neutron Cassette?

yup..took it out for a test ride last night..

the neutron cassette had a few imperfections..there are some teeth sticking either in or out (misaligned) mainly in the middle down to the smaller cogs..had to really work on rd fine-tuning to get rid or at least minimize the ticking sound..i'd probably change to another cassette later on..

I like this build, good stuff. What's the weight of the frameset? Frame, fork, seatpost?

taking some weight penalty for a more comfortable and smoother ride..

- selle san marco concord fx to a wider fizik argo tempo r1 saddle

Very nice build. 8)
I am also interested in the frameset. Can you share where you bought the frame? I can't seem to find a lot of information on the frame or where to buy one.
Thanks!

Very good looking bike, love it!

May i ask: What is the stem length of your Farsports F1s ? (i believe to recognize "120mm" ?)

(I bought a F1s as well, which is althought delayed. :| )

Good ride

thanks! bought it from kaze bicycle, their website is outdated, you can reach them instead on their fb page..my frameset was shipped from their thailand shop via fedex after paypal payment clearance and arrived in HK in 2 days..i think their latest release now comes with same gloss black finish but w/ a more visible red decals

thank you! yes, my F1s is 120mm x 400mm..ordered the F1x originally but they had problems with their stocks as well..opted for the F1s and it was still worth the wait
