I've got myself another set of canti's, I'll weight them when they arrive. Al;so decided to use SS-5's, those cheapos would have bugged the hell outta me. Got my nipples through as well but still waiting for my rear wheel. :x

Also fitted a Zoom hanger instead of the cannondale force 40. Decided not to tune it because it looks nice, also running nokons to get a nice tight loop into the hanger. And I've got some pimpy tri dangles. Still losing skewer auctions :roll: but do have a 9gram seat clamp coming.

Allegedly lighter but never compared tbh. They are a faff to build and can annoyingly 'tap' the frame, but they do allow for some tight routing. I also have some powercordz cables but I'll not bother with this one, need all sorts of weird clamping and liners.
