Added a product review for Sunday Conductor Frame 4/29/2011 1:20 PM
The Good: Solid, stiff frame that is exactly what should expected from a Sunday frame. It is basically a third wave frame without the waves and only marginal changes that aren't noticeably felt when riding. The main point worth pointing out is the placement of the brake posts. Going back to the chainstay for brake mounting is a definite plus! This location gives more stopping power and pull because of the geometery and leverage. I understand the need innovation, but it's good to see it go back to whats tried, true, and actually works.
The Bad: I would have liked to see the internal Chain tensioners carried over to this frame to eliminate the need to run one or two tensioners on the back axle. Personal opinion, but the frame gusset at the head tube should have the "Wave" technology or come to more of an oval point at the back weld. This seems to be the weak spot on Sunday frames where I commonly see them crack or break. The oval point would disburse the weight across the sides rather than the one spot on the bottom tube where they break.
Overall: Overall, the pro's out way the con's on this Conductor frame. This is my 4th Sunday frame and I have enjoyed all of them. The feel of these frames are different than most of the frames I have rode. I have 19 years of riding behind me and have rode alot of different frames. If you have read this review all the way to this point, than you obviously must have an interest in this frame. Most people don't ride at the level where you should worry about weak areas, as you mostly likely will not break parts. For those who do, know that these are durable frames but nothing is bullet proof in this world. All in all a fantastic product .
