Today’s Bike Of The Day is sick Chase RSP 4.0 Pro Cruiser ridden by Todd Kay! He actually sent me this bike at the same time as his 20″ that was featured a few months back. This is such a solid race bike, shout out to Todd for sending this one. Be sure to rate this bike via the sliders below.
So what I look for in components is good, solid quality in construction and ESPECIALLY performance. I’m not looking for the lightest parts, I’m looking for the best performance that I can get. Looks is always a plus but I’m all about the performance first. The parts that I’ve chosen happen to look totally awesome too.
Since I race both class and cruiser as much as I can, even at locals, I make sure to get matching parts so both bikes feel just about exactly the same jumping from one to the other.~Todd Kay
Almost all components are exactly the same but here are the differences:
- Chase RSP 4.0 Aluminum Pro Cruiser
- Box handlebars with 5.5” rise, same backsweep and upsweep
- Rennen 41 tooth front chain ring
- Rennen 18 tooth rear cog
- Sun Envy hoops – these were the stock hoops when I first got a Chase Element cruiser about 5 years ago
- The rear Onyx hub has a custom etching of a New York license plate with NY 2 NE
- Tioga Powerblock Tires 24×1.75 front and 24×1.6 rear
- Box X5 carbon forks
- Elevn Overbite stem 45mm long with 31.8 clamp
- Troy Lee ODI lock-on grips (I’m always trying new grips when current ones wear out)
- Elevn carbon seat post
- Elevn seat clamp
- Elevn saddle
- Elevn tapered headset
- Elevn BB86 press fit bottom bracket
- Box Genius brake lever
- Box Pro V-brakes and pads
- Shimano DXR cranks 175mm
- Spank Oozy pedals – I don’t clip in because I had a clubbed left foot when I was born. This caused me to have almost no calf muscle. The very small muscle that’s there is pretty useless. I did try clipping in for a year but my left leg would get fatigued so quickly because it focused too much on that left calf area. It hurt me at a lot of races but at least I tried it. A good shoe and spikey pedal always works great!!!
- Tubolite tubes – these are half the weight of a standard rubber tube which creates less rotational weight. I’m experimenting with these to see how they feel.
