Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Used a red hot screw driver to melt away any adhesive in front of the cable - in turn probably shrunk the carbon a little bit and the cable just popped out

I hope none of you even have to deal with something like this, but thanks for your help!

One more question.. The bottom bracket that comes on the foil is a press fit Shimano BB91. I have a SRAM GXP crank and it looks like I need a spacer. Is that the case? I thought the two were compatible?

Edit: Nevermind, I guess they aren't. Which SRAM Pressfit bottom bracket would I need?

SRAM/Truvativ Press Fit GXP. Basically a set of GXP bearings in Delrin cups to press into a frame. If you have a road frame it's likely an 86mm shell width, not 91. Only difference there is the length of the internal seal sleeve, if you end up with a 91 (mtb) then just cut to fit.

that is what I used, I'm not sure what it is

Dremeling is much harder than I thought it would be, probably making it worse. I'm going to call a local carbon repair shop on Monday


according to the msds the solvent in that glue is toluene, so white spirit or petrol will probably work ok too

if it's a cf frame i'd be wary of using a soldering iron/other heat source in case it affects the epoxy resin or damages the cable guides
