Just get the Habenero........We've had this discussion, and you know you want ti. :)
Yeah, the smallest stock habby would fit me well too I think. Thus the dilemma!
Not a fan of the IF Planet, Cool bike but the BB was higher than I like. I do like that IF is USA made. But I would get a custom Habanero, not as cool but you can get the Geo you want. Geo is everything in a CX bike.
Interesting John. The BB height is kind of an issue. What are you running now? The Hab stock is pretty low but I honestly don't think it would be an issue for me. I tested a friends Carver Ti last night and loved it. I imagine the Hab would be similar so now I'm down to Carver and Hab!
I run one bike with a 7cm drop and one with 8cm drop. With the 8cm drop you can't pedal in some circumstances but man you can rail the corners. I don't remember the height of my IF Planet but I sure felt it in the corners. If I was going to custom another bike I would go with something in the 72-73mm range.
I currently ride a Blue CXC. It's drop is 6cm. I feel "perched" on it if that makes sense??The Hab has a 7.8 cm drop. In all reality, if I was going over roots or large rocks, I probably wouldn't be pedaling and that moment so the clearance probably isn't an issue! I love stability so railing it in the corners sounds very nice. Thanks for your input!
