thinking of buying a 24” street trials bike and choosing from Czar Ion or Neutron and Inspyred Skye v1/v3.
I like the fact that Meutron and Skye have fork axles, but at the same time carrying extra 1 kg for stiffness - not sure it is worth it.
Also question on Skye V1 vs V3:
Is there a big difference in the way they ride/feel? The main geometry difference is the length of chainstays which went down from 380 to 362 mm. But is there a big benefit in it?
Also would you vote for a hub like hope on the back or trials freewheel on the cranks for street trials?
So to summarise, the options are:
1) light Czar Ion on good trials components (9 kg)
2) heavier Neutron on OK trials components (10 kg)
3) even heavier Inspyred Skye v1 on Hope components (10.5 kg)
4) heavy Skye v3 on cheap components (11 kg)
