These wheels are awesome! I Changed the hoods for stock black. Looks better and don't have to worry about getting them dirty like the white ones. I will order the smud saddle soon.

Great looking bike.

I'm tuning my Deda Superzero seat post too. The diameter on the cradle is too small for Smud and other carbon cradles I've seen online. I am wondering where you found that lighter cradle? Thanks.

thanks RimClencher! :beerchug:

The lighter craddle comes from the new superzero and superleggero seatposts. They come with that craddle now. When I saw the new superzero, I noticed the craddle and yokes were different so I brought my scale and it was 10 grams lighter.
You can contact the distributor and ask them to order it if they don't have it in stock. If they have some seatpost from warranty they could give you the craddle.

When I was in search for a lighter craddle, I bought the carbon craddle kit from Linskey , but the diameter was too big. I wanted to modify the diameter of the seatpost to match the craddle but the space between the bolts is not wide enough. Still have the kit. Have to put it for sale lol.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to contact a distributor or two and try to get hold of one of those new Deda cradles.

I have something that's probably very similar to that carbon cradle - a cradle I bought from CarbonCycles.cc for a different post. Someone else on this board (vinceflynow) I contacted about their Deda seatpost successfully used a Dremel to re-shape the carbon cradle so it fit his Deda seatpost. I don't have a Dremel or otherwise might give that a go.

For me it wasn't worth the trouble to reshape the craddle and compromise the part for just 3 grams saving. The carbon craddle is 14.4 grams. My seatpost is currently at 135 grams cut.
