Awesome Evo!

I run Campag 11 with a Hollowgram crank and aftermarket Stronglight CT2 chainrings. These rings are the best! I got mine from XXCycle as someone else said. Prices are fine and arrived in the US in a week or two. Easy to fit.

I just wanted to post about these chainrings, because you've got such an awesome bike and I LOVE the way you've built it up, but it does need those chainrings!

Great ride. Enjoy.

Thank you jonehall.

I took the advice and ordered them. Shipped on the 6Th and I trust they will arrive sometime next week.
Will post pics once they are on.

I also see according to Quarq web page no adjustment will have to be done on calibration as the FSA and the CT2s are 0.7% difference.
So all good!

Thank you for the advice everyone!!! :thumbup:

Posted in the Caad build thread as well, hope you'll forgive my doubleposting.

Things that have been changed:

-Cannondale Hollowgram Si SL 172.5 53/39, with customized FSA chainrings
-Shimano ultegra 6700 deraillers with bolts tuning and painted the FD clamp
-Ti Bolts all over

Just a few more things need to be done and I'll be finished.
-Black SL crank bolts as these aren't matching the rest
-Thomson masterpiece and smud carbon parts
-Smud carbon FD clamp
-7800 shifters with black levers
-Extralite ultrastar and installing the ultralight top cap, remove some steerer
-Sand down the fork, clearcoat it

Hey QR,

When you say "black levers", what do you mean?
Did you replace the levers for the 7800 shifters?
I'm interested in that if this is so.

Don't know how I'm gonna accomplish it, I've been thinking of a few options:

-Sanding and painting them
-Use vinyl wrap
-Using some kind of plastidip, as this will give it a great grip, I'm not sure wether or not it could be used in this application though.
-getting 7800 Ud carbon levers fabricated by http://www.concept2composite.com or smud or somebody else

I reached out to concept2composite.
Got a quote for $600. for carbon levers.
Here's what I did myself for $18.:

Why not just spring for some 5600 or 6700 levers??
