WW mods to the MAX :thumbup: I really like the look of the 'classic' saddle coupled to the ISP.

Nice work!

How do you operate the front derailleur on the Cannondale? And what is going on with the kink on the cable housing?

Initially I had a fancy tuned campagnolo downtube shifter (9Gr), but i sold it (and i regret a lot) because i didn´t use the bike for a long time. When i use it again i put the emergency solution (which lasted for more than a year) that you can see in the photo. A Deore shifter from an old MTB. The kink on the cable housing is because I used two chunks of housing (an old aluminium housing from the 80´s or older), but it worked perfectely anyways.

I'm guessing it is a bar mounted lever from what I can make out and that is what this latest mod is for, yes?

anyway you can show us or tell us a bit more about your process of making these parts with carbon? You mentioned you use pressure and not vacuum, I for one would like to know more about the process.

Yes, I use pressure instead vacuum because this way give me the chance to work with 3-4 Kg/cm2 or sometimes, even more. (in one of the photos above, you can see that the seat mold is reinforced with an iron structure). I think this way allows me to make more complicated pieces with more sharp angles, and also have less resin in the final result.

Another good reason is that when i started doing this kind of things, i had a compressor but not a vacuum pump. Everything influence a bit :-P .

Here you can see another part (from a wheelchair) i did with pressure. I can´t do photos with more detail ´cos i don´t have the parts but i´ll show you some photos of the molds.

Right now i´m trapped trying convert my Sram Red in a 11sp group, (here are some photos) but when i finish it, i ´ll do a simple carbon part with mechanics pressure and another hollow part with air globe pressure and i´ll post both here step by step.
