Got a set of the SLs with the FSA rings, standard 52/39.

I think that was a good decision. Doesn't seem 'right' to have a BB30 Cannondale and not a Hollowgram.

Agree....I wish I could have gotten the SiSL2 with the spiderings, but I am just too cheap. I kept telling myself that this was supposed to be a budget build, not a no budget build.

Hollowgram cranks arrived today!

Install will occur tomorrow since my normal tues/thurs ride is being interrupted by a thunderstorm/possible tornado.

This will mark the completion of the build....not sure of any other upgrade planned, save for a saddle upgrade.

Saddle is probably good until you decide you want something else. Maybe Praxis chain rings when you get tired of FSA rings? Otherwise I would just leave it and ride it as much as possible. :)

Yes, i think the silver will be a torn in the eye. But then again, no need to waste money if it's a budget build.

Yeah, I may wait a bit and throw some spiderings on there when the FSAs wear on me. We will see....:beerchug:

Looks pretty good to me (with my "heavy" training wheels).

Force 22 looks like it was made for that frame/paintjob, I love it. What are the cages?

Thanks! I have to agree :wink: The cages are Zipp Speedcages that I sanded.

I think I like it better than the Fuji, and I liked that bike a lot. Also have a soft spot for Cannondales and SRAM :-)

Seemed like you had fun building up something new, I'm a bit jealous...

Have fun riding it!
