2011 Crupi Pro XL

My first new school ride! (now updated)

So having decided to go racing again after 30 years, I thought I should get myself a new school race bike. Having never ridden anything later than an ’87 Haro, it’s fair to say that I didn’t know very much about new school race bikes other than they looked a lot lower and longer than the bikes I was used to. Reading (and starting) various threads and posts on here and elsewhere, I started to narrow down my search for something suitable and after a great deal of deliberation and procrastination, finally ended up with a custom built bike!!! Not my original choice but when the opportunity presented itself, I couldn’t resist!! To cut a long story short, I was offered a deal on NOS from a recently closed-down race shop. The selection of frames and parts was quite limited, but mostly decent, high quality stuff. Based around a 2011 Crupi Pro XL frame, the bike has a mixture of largely Crupi, Promax and Sinz parts. With a limited choice of colours but inspired by the 1988, 24-carat gold Hutch Trick Styler, I went for a white frameset with a splash of gold in the form of a few, matching gold ano parts from Promax. The only thing I had to compromise on was the wheelset and pedals, though they will do just fine for now. Here's the full spec list (with updates):- •    Frame: 2011 Crupi Pro XL (made from 6061 T6 Seamless Drawn and ovalised, aluminium tubing) •    Forks: 2012 Sinz Stealth Pro Alloy (now carbon Answer Dagger) •    Headset: Promax PI-1 sealed •    Stem: 53mm Promax Impact (now 45mm Funnduro with Ti bolts) •    Handlebars: Box Maximus Pro (28.25” x 8”) •    Grips: Turner lock-on (now Odi Vans) •    Brake lever: Sinz (now Promax Click) •    Brake caliper: Sinz (now TRP Donny Robinson signature series) •    Brake pads: Promax •    Seatpost Clamp: Crupi Rhythm quick release •    Seatpost: Crupi alloy •    Seat: Crupi Titanium-Lite (now Tioga D-Spyder) •    Cranks: Promax HF-2 (175mm) •    Bottom bracket: Promax EX-1 sealed (Euro) •    Chainring: 44t Renthal SR4 Ultralite (now Rennen 47t) •    Pedals: VP 566 (now DMR V12) •    Chain: KMC Z (now Crupi) •    Chain tensioners: Promax C-1 •    Freewheel: 16t Nervar (now 17t cassette cog) •    Wheelset: Generic alloy rims (20" x 1.75" x 36H) and hubs (now Bombshell rims on Alienation Bullitt hubs with DT Swiss 14g spokes) •    Tyres: Maxxis DTH (20" x 1.75") •    Tubes: Maxxis Welter Weight •    Number Plate: Box Phase 1 with custom graphic sheet by Danger UK (now assorted mid-school plates from UGP, Lizard Skins and Knucklebone) • Bar pad: Knucklebone or UGP •    Weight (as at 14/11/20): 9kg/19.84lbs (minus plate, pads and inept rider). Thanks for looking!

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

Awesome and the new addiction is born!  I'm just amazed at the new school breaks, we were always used to them not working in the 80's and now the new school breaks will throw you over the bars if you aren't careful haha.


Don't forget to have fun!

Yeah, it's nice to know you can stop if you want to, especially at our age!! Another big difference for me is not having to retighten the headset and stem all the time. Must admit I had little interest in new school bikes beforehand, but now I find myself looking at new school stuff as much as, if not more than old school!! The times they are a-changing! wink

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

It seems like a long time ago now but since the Crupi was built up back in March, 9 months ago, the only thing that it's needed has been general maintenance. Nothing’s broken or needed replacing, despite my riding exploits, which is testament to the quality and choice of parts. However, with the race season now on its winter break, it's time for a few bike upgrades. First up are some nearly-new, DMR V12 pedals that I bought on here. These are bloody lovely – magnesium bodies, sealed bearings and cro-mo axles. They are also super light, at least in comparison to the Victors (VP-566) I was running with before. Tbh, the VPs were fine and I never slipped a pedal on them but the V12s are definitely a step-up in terms of quality and my Vans feel locked in like never before! Here's a pic of one in situ:-

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/47558/dmr-v12s5a436e14f2.jpg

Next up is a Tioga D-Spyder seat that I found whilst rummaging through the bargain box in my lbs. I love the Velo-made Crupi seat but the leather's starting to wear, so I've wanted to replace it before it ripped. Finding the Tioga was therefore perfect timing, helped by the 75% discount off the RRP! The Spyder's also a little bit lighter, smaller and, dare I say it, more race-looking than the Crupi. Here are some comparison pics:-

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/47558/seats-0275a436fd308.jpg

I may still use the padded seat on practice rides but as per the online reviews, the Tioga's much more comfortable than it looks, so I may keep it on permanently. The change of seat colour has also changed the look of the bike as a whole, hopefully for the better but you can judge from the pics below!

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/47558/tioga-seat-pics-125a4370c131.jpg

That's it for the moment, though I have a new set of wheels waiting in the wings, so hopefully these will go on over the New Year! smile

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

So I’ve finally got round to changing the wheels on the Crupi. I’ve wanted to replace the generic wheelset since I bought the bike. It came with unbranded alloy rims and a freewheel hub which, tbh, have been fine thus far, holding up well to my on-track efforts, crashes included, but as we all know, it doesn’t take long for us to want an upgrade! In my case, this was mainly being driven (excuse the pun) by the desire to have something with better engagement than the 16t freewheel. My first thought was a White Industries freewheel but these aren’t particularly cheap, so that led me to thinking about spending a little bit more and picking up a secondhand wheelset with a cassette hub, thereby doing away with a freewheel altogether! Before I knew it I was looking at used wheelsets with rims and hubs from a whole host of manufacturers including Sun Ringle, Box, Bombshell, Crupi, Answer, Alienation, GT, Hope, Mavic and Chris King. You name it, I looked at it, but for various reasons, didn’t pull the trigger on anything until last summer when I found a custom set of Bombshell rims on Alienation Bullitt hubs with DT Swiss spokes. Built up by a Canadian bike shop, they were sold to a guy who decided to move up to an OS20 bike, so the Bombshells remained unused until I picked them up on a trip to Canada. They have a few marks from storage and the stickers are missing from the rear rim but otherwise they’re sweet! The seller had swapped out the 16t cog for a 17t version, which wasn’t a big problem as I’d wanted to experiment with gearing anyway. I found a used 47t Rennen chainring on here and decided to give that a whirl since a 47:17 ratio is only slightly higher than the 44:16 I’d been running with. Initial impressions are good, the gearing is not noticeably higher than before, though a bad back has prevents me from giving it a proper workout either on the road or track. Nor is the cassette unduly loud. Instead it has a very understated click, with a nice purr to it. smile

In fact the biggest impact is not performance-related but an aesthetic one, with the bike now having a red theme to add to the white and gold of the original. There were already a few smidgens of red on the bike and the wheels have helped to bring those out, aided by a red Promax seat post clamp that I also picked up here. There’s no doubting that the bike is now much more bling than the previous setup but I love it. cool The change of gearing and chain also necessitated moving the wheel back about 10mm. What the longer wheelbase translates to on the track I’ve yet to find out but it makes the bike look leaner! smile

Anyway, enough blurb, here are some more pics:-

Thanks man! Yeah, I love these wheels and the sound the cassette makes too! The only downside is that I’ve lost the cool white and gold theme found on your Trick Styler!

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

Hey Baz, how’s it going?

Got a new race number this year, so decided to replace the Box #plate with a used UGP (thanks NORCAL BOYZ) and sticker-bomb the back!

I See That Seat Now.  I was debating going with the white and dying it purple or Blue.  But as you seen I choose The Black.   I was Not sure About the dying Process

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

I've recently made a few changes to the bike, principally swapping out the alloy Sinz forks for some carbon Answer Daggers, which has made the front end a little lighter and as a result, more "chuckable"! Having finally removed one of those annoying, rounded-off hex bolts, I also changed the grips and brake lever.

In the ongoing evolution of the bike, I'm currently looking at changing the stem for something with a shorter reach. Updated pics to follow as and when!

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

So I pulled the trigger on a smaller stem albeit an mtb one! It’s a Funnduro 45mm with a zero degree rise, so a bit shorter and lower than the Promax Impact. Weighing in at 110g with Ti bolts, it’s also 140g lighter! Check out these comparison pics:-

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/47558/988536a3-e7fa-4d7b-b7a1-ce6f2cf253475c8209c24c.jpeg

It also changes the look and feel of the bike as a whole. The steering now feels more responsive though I’ve yet to see how that translates on the track. A couple more pics:-

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

Got to test the new stem set-up at the track this week and as expected, the steering felt very responsive - I liked it!

Re: 2011 Crupi Pro XL

Thanks man! Just picked up this Knucklebone crossbar pad for it. Adds an extra bit of red (not to mention an old school flavour) to the front end, which I think balances out the grips. That's my justification for the unnecessary purchase anyway!! big_smile
