Here are the Lightning cranks in 160mm length in 110BCD Compact. Like the handlebars, there are no other Weight Weenie options other than the Lightnings in such a small size. THM and Ax Lightness stop at 170mm. I use Lightnings on my mountain bike and like them a lot. I am pleased with the weight. For comparison, I listed the weights of some of my other cranks:

THM Classic 130BCD 170mm: 346 grams
THM SE 110BCD 170mm: 295 grams
Zipp Vumaquad 172.5mm: 363 grams
Ax Lightness Morpheus 170mm: 346 grams

Thanks Everyone. I am not going to go crazy and tune these brakes down to 98 grams like I did on the Ghisallo. Wife gets the standard version with metal leaf springs.

You know you want to tune the pad holders ....it has to be done. and swap the adjusters for the lighter ones. The WW force is strong for this build :thumbup:


Hi Xena, where can buy the lighter adjuster? any links?

I thought you had lighter adjusters on your bike? I was going to ask you about them and the weight difference and do they come in black?

I bought the adjusters on Ebay. Just search "Brake Cable Barrel Adjuster Screw M6" They come in various anodized colors (blue,red,gold,black) They are a little shorter in length compared to the Ax Lightness ones. I think I saved 2 grams replaced the front and back. I will have to reweigh to make sure. They were $9 usd.

As much as I want to use Fibrelyte chain rings because they will look cool with this build, I must come to the realization that this bike is not for me and I will not be riding it. My wife is not an experienced road cyclist so she will be cross chaining and shifting under load as she learns how to ride. I can already see the carbon teeth breaking or chipping due to inexperienced shifting. So, I will start her off with some aluminum chainrings that are stiff. Praxis will work but I do not like how they look. I think they are ugly as F%%% They will not go very well with this build in my opinion but they are the most durable option. Maybe an Osymmetric 56 tooth front ring will work better for her as she cranks out 100 watts :mrgreen:

These are so much nicer! They are my spares and for now they will stay as my spares. If she shows to me that she can shift like a pro, then she will get these......But honestly she could care less. I am more excited about these than she is.

I had my scalpel sanded and matte cleared a couple years back. The painter had to fade the joints bc of the filler, it still looked awesome.

The Matt finish looks very nice. I really like it and I think that is what I will do with the Cannondale. I am not going to fade it with black paint so mine will have more of a raw look.

My Scott Addict was sanded down to bare carbon and finished with a gloss clear coat. You can only see the carbon underneath when the lightning is correct. Otherwise it looks like a shiny black frame. I want the Cannondale to look different from my Scott so it will get the matt finish instead of gloss.

Nice sanding! I also asked myself the same question about the filler on the frame. But I think it's just there to fill dents that don't compromise the constructual strength of the frame.

Sanding a frame down to raw carbon is so rewarding!!

That guy went all the way with his Evo. He left nothing and sanded until the frame turned dark gray. That is what I am doing on this frame. I have sanded the head tube, top tube, and seat tube and have reached 697 grams. I still need to sand the downtube, bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays. I am guessing in the mid 670 gram range when complete. I am planning on using this 3 day weekend to get most of the sanding done. I will post updates as soon as I can.

My wife saw the frame and asked why I took the paint off? I told her that the bike had lots of dirt on it and I needed sand paper to get it off. She said "oh, ok" and walked away :mrgreen:
