Just got the bike.

I have been skimming through the owner's manual, and I noticed the part KP123 chainplate. What is this thing for? The reason I ask is that it looks like the top of the FD is rubbing the frame. Like this:

Also, the bike didn't come with a downtube protector (KP054) and scuffguards (KF103). Should I have received those with the bike?

EDIT: The bike also doesn't have protective film on the right chainstay. It does have a neoprene chainstay protector, but I thought it should have protective film as well? Something like this: http://www.cannondaleexperts.com/Cannon ... p_449.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The flash seat tube always sits very close to the back of the front derailleur. Some particular front derailleurs will not fit due to interference. I can't see yours that well but if it was mounted, it's probably fine.
As I recall, mountain bikes that come with the neoprene chainstay protector do not have s separate clear vinyl protector. I remember the downtube protector coming factory installed, the scuffguards should be provided, I'm sure the place you got it from will just give you some.

kp123 is for fitting a shimano FD on there. it is not needed if you are running a sram FD.

no. neither one is supplied as standard.

Thanks for the replies. I'll ask them if they have any spare protection tape.

I think I'll take a closer look at that FD. I just want to make sure it's OK.

Hmm, I don't have the hex wrench to remove the cranks at the moment (10 mm). I thought I had, but I don't. What I did do was to loosen the leftmost screw that holds the front derailleur.

It does seem like the front derailleur is just touching the frame. Should I do anything about this? I am worried that vibrations might cause scratching of the frame.

Could other Flash 29er owners please check how much space is between their front derailleurs and the seat tube?

Mine is touching just a tiny bit as well (f29 carbon 3, size L. X7 derailleur.) I removed the derailleur and put a frame saver there (the little clear 3m patches that come with all cannondales) Once tightened down, it compresses the sticker a little bit, but it seems like its going to prevent the frame from getting scratched.

hi, marsbar--i wanted to amend something that i wrote earlier.

my scalpel did not come with the downtube protector, but my flash did come with the KP054 part installed, as well as several other scuff guards to prevent cable rub.

i apologize for that confusion.

No worries. I bought some coptertape and used that instead:)

skywalker268: Thanks for the information. I might do the same.
