I specially thanks superlite for all the answers and photos.
Last week i also become my fork from cannondale Europe ( after 4 months )
The service in Europe is very slowly and bad.

and Caadhead i see that you also have a good taste did you put in a other fork?

regards Optimo

Hi,regarding the diffrent fork on my Caad 7,I bought it as a frame only from Ebay and as I used Reynolds Ouzo Pro's before,in a 1 inch steerer version,I thought I'd go with them again as I knew they were super stiff stiff,although I know not the lightest fork.

Vette fiets. Waar heb je die CAT remmen gekocht? Gewoon via internet uit de US zeker? Hoe remmen ze?

Enne, die BBB bidonhouder vind ik toch niet kunnen hoor op zo'n fiets. Tune, Denti, Tacx Tao desnoods maar geen BBB!

En vanwaar die 'zware' velgen? Daar had je zo makkelijk nog 50 gram per stuk kunnen pakken?
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!

Hallo martijn,

Er zijn inmiddels nog wat dingen aan gepast er zit nu een carbon bidonhouder op, wel weer die van BBB 28 gr.. Heb tune eraf gegooid bidons plakken in de zomer veel te veel vast.
Velgen zijn besteld de amclassic 350.

de remmen zijn perfekt ben in de Dolomieten de Lavareto en dergelijke afgekomen zonder problemen had er ook mijn twijfels over, maar ze remmen perfekt afstelling is iets minder maar ja dat hoort er ook bij.
Heb er wel koolstop dual compounds op zitten
