That's around the same time as China Cycle Show. So my guess is that they've been busy 😉

Yeah, after taking it apart and putting it back together I have to attribute it to ring noise.  I've just never experienced it that loud in previous bike builds. It sort of echoes inside the bottom tube near the BB. It's most noticeable in the stand when spinning backward.

BTW, the Rotor 52/36 rings fit this frame and shifted smoothly with a 11/34 cassette with a RD8000 rear mech.  I figured I would test it before I swapped it for a set of compact Praxis rings since some early posts in this thread inquired about it.

Getting close...this is my first time working with discs (and hydros) and I'm having a bear of a time eliminating the rubbing...and I think I have a leak in the front[frown]

Sadly frameset with bsa bb is not available anymore ... decided for a bb86 one.
Adam did not answered me for a long time trying to find a bsa one for me .. instead received some feedback by Sunny.

Now it's time to pay ... i've chosen paypal, total price is $724 and now Sunny asked me to proceed with payment to a very strange email address composed only by numbers similar to 1248476949@163.com

Was the same for you?

Thanks guys for support ; )

Yup, used the same. They have some weird mail hosts in China I guess. I've bought different things from China via PayPal and they often have some weird email addresses. But I have always received the goods I payed for. So it's legit. :)

Can anyone link to some alternate options for a rear thru axle? The one that came with my frame is too difficult to get through the hub. Not looking for light weight/expensive. Thanks

When communicating with Chris from Velobuild and Adam from Carbonda you have answers in a few hours....

CSC has some good deals of wheels as it seems but if they dont communicate it is gettinghard


i bought a frame and wheelset from velobuild, the wheels melted on a decent and the frame couldn't accept the di2 cable through the rear stay.... no emails after that...

Hi folks,

I'm looking to build a Carbonda 505 for my wife, as she is asking for a gravel bike. The size S will fit her pretty much perfectly. She wants a light bike, so my build idea is:
- Carbonda frame, fork, seat post
- Ultegra Di2 2x groupset, 50/34, 11/32
- Hambini bottom bracket
- power2max power meter
- Shimano MTB pedals
- 650B wheelset with 25mm ID, 45mm tires (probably WTBs) for gravel use
- If she likes the bike for on-road, get a second 700c wheelset
- Extralite stem, Specialized carbon handlebar
- Meld 3D saddle

I was wondering if anybody had run into trouble installing internal di2, and if the BB86 shell has a clear line of sight through it (nothing sticking into it, like a BB guide screw or cables) - this would be important to install the one piece Hambini bottom bracket.

Thanks for any feedback
Jever

Hi @SteeleWheels

Thanks for the photos. I recall from the original colour plan you shared that the inside of the stays and forks were to be UD carbon. Are you able to see the carbon in those areas, or were they painted matt black?

Hope you’re enjoying the bike, even though the freight guys weren’t your friends.

C!

Are you able to share a picture with the standard seat clamp please?

But only 140mm flatmount rear disk option as far as the description shows - strange. Other than that interesting as it has a standard seat post and not the dedicated seat post like workswell.

The inside of the blades were painted flat black, the inside of the crown is silver. I don't know why they did it that way.

Clamp problem is fixed. Just use carbon paste and torque to 6nm. Also, request an extra just in case.

This is the same frame as a workswell r 146.  I've got one on order and it should be arriving soon.  I'll let you guys know if the rear brake is 140mm only.  So far in my experience with flat mount disk brakes, you can switch between 140 and 160mm calipers simply by turning the flat mount adapter around.

Bike is done. Had a short run yesterday. Built it with SRAM eTap HRD and some Reynolds Assault.
