Chinese carbon bike and cheap operation – Friends, today I want to share with you my impressions of the Chinese carbon fiber, which I bought last year for my great Bianchi Kuma. I’ll tell you a little about how and where I purchased it, and how it showed itself during a year of operation. You will also find out if it is worth buying carbon from China.
If you really want to save money, learn to service your bike yourself. To get started, you need a good set of hexagon, something like angular with handles, or even simple split hexagons, which are much more convenient to work with than regular multitools. Of course, they are not interchangeable when traveling, but they are not very convenient in the workshop. The corners will become your main tool.
The more complex chinese bikes become and the more components require specific tightening forces, the more important it becomes to get your own torque wrench. For example, the need arises when you have a machined aluminum stem and carbon handlebar, and you do not want to pinch it so as not to damage it. The stem usually indicates a tightening torque of 5 N.m (Newton / meters), just insert the wrench and look at the torque indicator. This way you can be sure that everything is clamped correctly and there will be no problems.
