Syntace sells the F119 stem with the 1.25" steerer clamp standard and a shim to get it back to 1.125".
You can find this stem on a lot of websites or perhaps well-equipped shops - or order it direct from Canyon.
The F119 stem in 110mm length with steel bolts that came with my Canyon frameset was 136 grams on the scale, as I recall.
The ti bolts drop it about 10 grams or so.

thank you Farm, do you by any chance measured how heavy the canyon seatpost is? and the old clamp seems your using a special seat clamp :thumbup:


thank you Stolichnaya, canyon sells em, but shipping cost as much as the stem itself...

some simple modifications i did.
while waiting to order zg low-profile holders for 22-24mm rims, had to cut part of the pads to make space for the 404s.

so that the jagwire cableheads dont snag on the ergolever cable path since the jagwire heads are flat. used the kitchen knife sharpening stone. :)

THAT is seriously one of the best looking rides I have seen here... bar none!

How is the recon cassette? I'm contemplating it for my new build and can't find any feedback whatsoever.

cheers and thanks!

thanks matti!
as with the recon cassette, it holds up fine and is suited for my riding (i only ride 2-3 days a week, around 160-200km) so durability is not an issue for me. of course we all know it wears faster than a steel cassette.
its a little harder to tune than standard cassettes but other than that, works fine for me.

cheers.
