Thanks you for preventing me going over to the Dark side :) New MKV chain rings are on the way.

Anyone know what the difference are to the MKIV that I'm running now?

Very nice.
General question. How easy would it be to strip the CAAD 10 down into a total stealth bike. It wouldn't really go over well with my team if I was racing Cannondale but really seems like the best option for fit weight and performance for me. Most of the labelling looks like stickers but would I have to sand the stays?

All decals are under clear coat so you need to sand the whole frame and repaint it. If you want Ulegra di2 you could buy the 2013 black edition, which only has a small gold Cannondale logo on the top tube. As the frame is anodised this can probably be removed with acetone.

Dammit. You get punished for running anything else than Campy on Neutrons.

So right, you should always be punished not running Campa ;)

Picked up the painted fork today and mounted the new stuff. Was worried if they could match the very matte look of the original fork, but it was a perfect match. IMO much better than the original and 100g lighter. With the new paint it ended at 310g incl. the bottom race.

Choose a Dura Ace cassette as the Red is not available in a 12-25 and as I previously was running SR11 on a 12-25 I didn't want to increase the jumps between the gears even more. Besides I think Shimano is superior in drive train engineering with a long track record, but SRAM has taken the lead on the shifting.

New MKV chainrings and bolts brought new life into the old Hollowgrams. As one wrote earlier they are classic.

Not sure.....mine got to me in a week or so, but that was CONUS. They certainly do not ship it the day you order it, and they definitely used the cheapest shipping option available.

It took 17 days for it to get shipped and then almost two weeks in the mail. To Norway.

Bike is coming along nicely!

It took about a week and a half to get my STS cover, they are shipped flat rate USPS though, so it's to be expected.

Looking forward to see the final build! consider that you might loose those jagwire frame protectors during time. In silvan I picked up a set of krympeflex that I put on the cables for frame protectors, I copied what "prendrefeu" did: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=108235
