Thread: Ext C Vs EP
Posted 13 July 2009 at 16:37:34 UK time
hcc, china,

I am think seriously on Ext C & EP & EPS. I weigh 64kg, 180cm tall, i do not race and ride 80km during weekend. Would anyone tell me which i should pick? I think I should pick Ext C which is more comfortable frame. However, it is difficult to be found in the market nowadays. Someone say EP & EPS is very stiff and is designed for strong rider and racer. Will it be too harsh for me to ride? Any advice is welcomed!!

Christoph, Innsbruck,


I am 186 cm tall with 69 kg. I rode Extreme C now for a whole season completing 13.000 km also doing races.

This is the best bike I have ever ridden.... perfect!

I have been offered an extreme c but I am worried is there a weight limit for riders for this frame I am approx 100 kilos.

Don't know if you got the Extreme C or not but from what I remember it did come with a rider weight limit in the 80kg range. I did read this was to do with performance rather than weight concerns, in the fact that beyond a certain weight a rider would negate any weight savings the frame made. I did see a couple in the flesh and they were pretty slender tubes and seat stays so it may be a risk. If you could find a C50 this may be a better bet.
