@bmxed, I bought the m6 yokes. But the distance between the "highs and lows" of the thread are different from the KCNC yoke and the Schmolke bolts
@ devinci: Haha, that's so cool to hear!
And yes, the seatpostwalls are soooo thin. I've seen a lot of pictures of the Schmolke posts, but never one from this angle that shows just have thin it really is. Amazing to say the least.
And I've been trolling you a bit. I'm planning to use 2 cassettes. 1 to actually ride on (XX 11-32), and 1 to test durability and shifting quality (Recon alu 11-32). My bet is that the Recon will be used for weighing and testing a couple of rides, and if it performs well, I will try it on a race or two. I don't expect more of it than that. If it exceeds my expectations then I'll might get a second Recon alu, but it's mostly for testing purposes. The XX will only add 53 grams or so, and the bike will still be sub 7.3 kg (according to my Exceldocument that is).
There is one problem though. I have the wrong BB type for my lightning cranks
I have PF30, but my frame is BB30, but the lightnings need outboard cups. I guess I need these?
Also, my Extralite Garas probably won't fit as they'll scratch the chainstays. I need the THM bb30 BB + some nice chainrings. I have the 104/64 BCD 4-bolt spider, and I plan to go 36T - 28T/27T.
I'm currentyl trying to decide to go for one of these:
+ the EP 27T@16g
TA specialites chinook 36T@43g
and the 28T@34g
Or a combination of the two. Or maybe some else. Does anybody have any tips and reccomendations?
Now that the cat is out of the bag, here it goes:Crankarms
The lightning SL. I can't afford the THM claviculas, so these will have to do just fine. I'm certain they will. They have a 100kg weight limit, so I can outgrow a couple of pants before that becomes a problem.

These are the ones I originally planned to use. But I guess they'll be to large for the frame. I'm going to buy new rings and BB, and if they fit, then great, if not, then I'll just sell them or something. Extralite gara 42-28: 77gUntitled
