If it isn't stiffness, what else..?
The size of bb shell may explain it. Cervelo's bbrigh is just bigger in every dimension.

Have you had any issues with the kozak soul top cap? I'm about to order 1 but wanted to make sure that there weren't any issues with the first. Any issues with it fitting standard expander plugs?

It's absolutely fine, trouble free top cup.
Previously, it served me well on my mtb bike.

New addition, 162g. I'm curious how my bottom will react after almost 3 years on 67g saddle :)

Hi Krzychu, fantastic bike, but I preffer your Canyon ;)

What's wrong with Smud saddle? Wasn't comfortable for you?

Hi, Smud's saddle is/was absolutely fine. Although 67g is still kind of compromise, which was OK for me to accept over the quite long period I've been happily using it. Prologo is a consequence of this bike idea, durability, as much comfort as it's possible with the minimum weight. So in terms of the weight, 100g more or less it doesn't make any difference to me :)

Bear in mind that you put the oring after the battery cap is screwed in.
It couldn't be easier.

Sorry, have no idea. I'm still using the one which came with the frame.
Have you looked at Lizard Skins carbon leather?
