Hyvät 80- ja 90-luvun maantierungot, onko niitä?

Kuten jo todettiin niin Italialaisissa kasari-ysäri-rungoissa on tyypillisesti tiukempi geometria kuin joissain muissa saman ajan vastaavissa. Erityisen kiinnostavia on muuten ns. Criterium -tyyppiset rungot, kuka tietää näistä enemmän?

"[i]Racing bicycles used for criteriums are typically no different than those used in other mass-start road events. However, some criterium racers will choose bicycles with:

  • a wheelbase shortened as much as possible, for increased turning ability, with the shortest chainstays possible, and a slightly shortened top tube (often causing some toe overlap with the front wheel on certain frame sizes)…

  • forks with less rake (not more than 40mm) for increased turning ability (albeit sacrificing some stability).

  • slightly shorter cranks (167.5-170mm), often slightly higher bottom bracket (+10mm) to facilitate pedaling through turns without hitting or scraping the pedals on the ground…"[/i]

Näähän kuulostaa jo ihan mun jutulta, :wink:
