Also, Crius frames can be purchased separately, and you can build it with your choice of components. Offical Dahon and Tern frames cannot be bought individually, you will have to get the whole bike before upgrading it.
Check out this custom build using the Crius AEV20 folding bike frame! It is an aluminium frame for V brakes, and is designed for 406 sized 20 inch wheels.
Hi, You have an interesting blog. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Are you by any chance still open to help others put together a custom crius bike?ReplyDelete
Hi I don't build bikes commercially, only for close friends.Delete
Cool! thanks. Keep up your good work on your blog!ReplyDelete
Hi, can you share the weight of this bike built up?ReplyDelete
The bike weight is shown in the last post, Final Assembly.Delete
Hi, I want to custom build a Foldie? Will you be able to help me out?ReplyDelete
Sorry I don't build bikes commercially, only for close friends.Delete
Sorry to highjack your thread. I have an old Vitesse D7 that's probably >10 years old. It's been in a bit of neglect. So am thinking of changing most of the parts except for the frame, including the neos derailleur. Would you know of any shop that can help me upgrade to litepro parts? Probably changing the wheelset, Crankset, drivetrain, handlepost etc. thank you!ReplyDelete
Hi, hows the ride quality (frame) of the crius brand? Im in the midst of searching a 20" foldie, current ride is Dahon vybe 2018 JP JDM which I find its adequate for me but its got hijacked by the Mrs. CheersReplyDelete
All these frames are similar, Dahon/Crius/Fnhon. Ride quality depends more on the components you use, such as wheelset, tires, etc.Delete
Hi Steve, i need your advice on wheelset and hope you can help me out. Currently i'm riding crius maser d. The current wheelset is kfun 406 20inch. Will changing the wheels from 406 to 451 increase my speed? If yes, then what kind of wheel set would you recommend?ReplyDelete
Changing from 406 to 451 wheelset will not increase your speed.Delete
More effective way is to change to a slick and slimmer tire, such as Schwalbe Kojak or Schwalbe One.
Lowering the handlebar position and optimizing the saddle height will also help.
What are the component specifications on your current setup?
This is the current spec for my crisus master d. 9speed sora, wheel set is 4 bearing sealed hub (kfun) and cst 406 tyres. Crankset is litepro hollowtech and cema ceramic BSA24. Cema ceramic jockey wheel. I'm a beginner so this is all i know. Hope u can provide your guidance. Thanks in advance.
Start with the tires, it will make a big difference. Other components are pretty OK and will not make much difference in speed even if they are upgraded.Delete
Steve thank you for your valuable advice.ReplyDelete
