Slight problem with new GT zr1.0 frame(10 posts)

Slight problem with new GT zr1.0 frameStarliner
Feb 28, 2002 12:14 PM
Supergo finally got it right and sent me the Team frame after mistakenly sending me the stock colored frame. They erred, but made good on it.

Team frame has nice pearlized yellow paint with black and red secondary colors. Standard frame has royal blue as primary color - nice for some but not what I wanted.

Anyhow, the team frame also has sponsor logos spotted around the frame. That's where a slight problem may have materialized.

Campagnolo happens to be one of the logos. While I've nothing against Campy, I'm going to have to stick with Shimano for wheel swapping compatability reasons with my two other bikes. I thought I might go with Campy brake calipers at least, but I found out that they don't have the trim adjustment at the caliper as do the shimanos.

I wonder if I'll offend any campyholics I may encounter when I hit the road with it.
now you know how Campy-phile postal OCLV owners feelmapson

If you ride with a campyholic who is offended by this you are riding with someone who is a snob in the full meaning of the word. Such a person's opinion is not to be valued.

There's another problem with the Team ZR1 frame, at least on mine (58 cm): there's a pro number mounting braze-on under the top tube near the head tube, that interferes slightly with one of the brake cables. I had my LBS grind it off and retouch it, but I wonder what they did on the TDF bikes?
you can trim with campy at the ergo leverishmael

if you are talking about rubing the front ring that can be adjusted easily with the ergo levers...if you are talking about slight adjustments at the rear that can only be done with the barrel adjusters, but then i assumed thats the same for shimano..then again i dont see a reason why you would want to trim the back if the rear deurailer is adjusted properly..

That is SO nuts! I have the GT team lotto zr-1.0 frame and it's yellow, red, and black and Shimano is on it. Funny thing is mine is about to be built up with all Campy parts. What year is it? Mine is a 2001 and all the 2001 bikes I can see pics of in the lotto-adecco homepage also have the Shimano sponsor flash on (http://www.lotto-adecco.com/eng/downloads/fotos/2001/fotoindex.htm).

Would have been nice to wind up with that Campy badge just for symmetry. But look at it this way, you know someone now who is doing exactly similar but opposite experiences. :)

Ahhh, I went to their site, pics of the 2000 team have Campy gear. So you got one of the 2000 frames. Don't know if there's any difference between 2001 and 2000.

Starliner this is your lucky day.
Do not build up that frame, you can exchange it with supergo for one with the Shimano decals you prefer and here is why. I have just bought a zr-1 frame frome the supergo stores out here in L.A. and I saw mostly all Shimano decaled frames with a few 2 per 50 with campy decals. Like dank I run campy and when I noticed a frame in my size with campy decals I took it as a sign from Tullio to buy it fast. It seems that you have recieved one of the rare 2000 campy decaled frames. These frames are also different in that there head tubes acomodate a 1" steerer tube not the 11/8" set up advertised in supergo"s catalog. This will be a major problem if you plan on installing a 1 1/8" headset and fork, and it should be reason enough for supergo to swap out framsets with you agian .If the ID of your head tube is aprox. 1 3/16" it is for an 1" steerer.
These are Great frames don"t be discouraged.

Good luck,

Wow that's not good! Considering that I'm set up with fork, stem and HS for a 1-1/8 headtube. I noticed that Supersham changed their online data on the frame so that they now claim measurements are c-t rather than c-c which is what I saw when I ordered. As well as the 1-1/8 HS which if I undestand what you say I might not have? This whole thing is becoming an idiotic comedy.

I'll measure the frame Saturday morning and go from there. Where's the lawyers when I need one...

Woken up by the sound of crows laughing at me, I got up and checked out the frame which is not built yet, and it's 1-1/8. False alarm, go back to sleep.
