When set up properly, that rear brake works as well as any other brake. First check for excess cable slack. Then get spring tension equal. Should work fine.

I agree. However, after watching the LBS guys work on it and getting a bit frustrated, I figured I would go with the Shimano. We'll see how that goes. May be only thing I fiddle with this year.

I don't think this is an IA-specific problem, but I thought this might be a good thread for a solution. I have one of those hitch-mount carriers that basically holds bikes by the top tube. When I went to put my new IA 16 on it, I discovered that the "prongs" (for lack of a better description) that hold the bike are too far apart/the frame of the IA 16 is too thick for me to mount my bike. Has anyone else encountered this? Any solution other than "buy a new bike rack"?

Nope, the seat post is too wide. This is using the similar swagman adapter

Has anyone used the Wheel Mfg. BB30 OUT bottom brackets for running shimano cranks on these IA frames? Any feedback?

Specifically, I'm looking at this one

Did you remove the Vision TriMax aero?
I'm looking to replace my Tri Rig brake.
LMK if you have it and want to offload it.

EDIT: If anyone removed their Vision TriMax aero front brake and wants to sell, I want to buy. PM me.

You need to use your Clay Davis voice from The Wire:

Sheeeeeiiiiiit you think I'm worried about :02, maybe, over 40k knowing what I know. I'm ditching my tririg front to be fair to the rest of you old M45-49 dudes.....or at least that's what I'm telling you.

The IA16 doesn't come with the Vision brake. It comes with a traditional dual pivot brake. And a pretty crappy one at that. According to Tririg's test, the Omega is 2 seconds faster over 40k than the Simkins Egg Brake that is very similar to the Vision. Since every company skews their tests in their favor, I figure it's really 1 second faster. I got a very good deal from someone here who ''upgraded'' to the Omega.

If I ever race him and he beats me by 1 second, I'll change my mind and think it wasn't such a great deal!

If I lose by 1 second, I'll challenge him to a sport that I can win like dick measuring!

(I wish Vision had done a better job with the cable on their brake, but 2 seconds, one wind gust will change everything)

First, do you have an inline cable adjuster? If you do, back it off.

If not, first thing; release the cable, then hold the pads where
they belong, pull the cable tight and tighten the bolt.

Need more? Remove the brake pad holders and switch the adjusting washers to the outside.

One of those should do it. If not; grind the pads. (yuk)

Hi Superdave or any IA owners. I just got the call from my LBS that my IA16 was in and they had started the build. they had already put the rear brake cabling on wrong, but I schooled them with photos from this forum. The real problem, there seems to be a huge blemish. When I brought it to there attention they sorta wrote it off as if that is just going to happen with carbon layups. Am I just being overly concerned, and this is on all IAx's or is this something I should have them send back to felt? I personally think it looks like crap. Let me know thanks.

I do not know man my wife tells me all the time how big of a dick I am and that was before the new bike. ;-) Glad you like the brake. I hated to see it sit on the shelf.

I took a look at my IA 10 and don't see ant spots like that.

It looks like they sanded through the top weave layer. If it bothers you that much send it back.

Maybe it had the same quality control people that let one through (I think it was posted earlier in this thread) the said "FEL" on the downtube.

The cosmetic impact would be the least of my worries; I'd be more worried about the structural integrity of the frame. It's hard to tell from the photo but what is there in that spot where there's no cross-weave carbon cloth visible? Can you tell if it's something over the weave or the weave is missing? Is it a big patch of resin devoid of carbon (unlikely I'd think) or is there unidirectional carbon tow showing through?
If it's anything other than excess material covering the weave pattern, it would concern me with respect to structural integrity and potentially put a bit of a question mark over the quality of these frames in general. But hopefully it's purely cosmetic and/or an isolated case.

Have to be somewhat concerned that demand for the IA line is causing corners to be cut to meet anticipated delivery dates. How does this frame get out the door, not to mention the "Fel" bike.
