i see that EE Cycleworks has a new top cap and expander system.

anyone get this? i'm curious as the top cap has a very thin and clean edge. looks interesting.

I've been using a few of the prototypes for the last 6 months or so and have no issues at all with them.

I've been on the expander for the last 6 months too it's pretty nice and the lightest on the market right now.. It holds very well and doesn't work loose. I've got a few coming into stock next week

If you add to this Fedex's ransom you have to pay on top of your postage charge it puts you off.

Still not as light as an Extralite combo. 2.9g + 5.9g.

The EE eeNUT = 5.3 grams, so definitely lighter than Extralite's. If you want the lightest combo, just mix 'n match to save 0.6 grams. :wink:

Looks very elegant. Interesting how concentrated the point of contact is. I guess if it doesn't put too much force into the steerer in absolute terms i guess the stress riser isn't too acute.

it's actually possible to come to the conclusion even before realising it makes no sense at all

I plan to use an eeNut with an Enve 1.0 fork, the ID of the steerer appears to be just under 25mm. The 6 interlocking petals (don't know what else to call them), do they just flex out without breaking away from the center? There is so little material, I'm worried it will snap.

It certainly is very nice looking, probably the nicest out there. I'll echo what's been said above in that it will be very expensive to get in the UK

I'll keep any eye out at ubyk. This combo looks great design-wise, I wouldn't expect anything less from EE

Could the EE system be used on a Cannondale all carbon fork instead of the Cannondale compression cap?
