Since the clamping forces will be directly against the new "fins" there should be no loss in strength. Similar to the way a cardboard box is extremely strong on one axis but not the other.

Looks smart.


I was referring more to the actual expander, which on the old version looks longer and is in full contact with the inner surface of the steerer. As for the top cap, which is supposed to provide support as well, on my Evo I can remove it easily after the stem is installed to 4-5nm. Easily, meaning, no difference in resistance than when the bolts on the stem are loose. Which means, it is not providing support anyway...

Received my cap today! Weighed in at 16 grams as opposed to the old one at 50 grams! I'll take that easy $1/Gram!

When did you order and how far are you from CannondaleExperts(assuming you ordered form them)?

I ordered it Tuesday afternoon, received a shipment notification on Wednesday afternoon, and it arrived this morning(Friday). I'm in Nevada, so not a long shipment from Utah. :thumbup:

According to Dr Cannondale the new bolts weigh 13g vs 14g for the old ones. Any chance you could weigh them?
I wanted to order black bolts anyway and will probably get the sisl2's.

thanks a lot :thumbup:

I got some plans to drop another 350-400 grams of my CAAD 9, and it's in the little things too I guess. Gonna be expensive though :mrgreen:

On that note, has anyone weighed all of the parts from a sisl2 vs the sisl? I've seen a few individual weights but nothing complete.

I'm especially interested in the weight of a spidering vs the normal spider and chainrings.

I asked at my LBS and they told me ETA for the KP017 is April 30. They also told the MSRP is $20, while cannondaleexperts sells it for $32. Is my LBS wrong? Is cannondaleexperts overcharging? :noidea:

Cannondaleexperts charges what they can get for things. A lot of items are MSRP, some hard-to-find and/or desirable items are more. More power to them. If people don't like the price they can get it elsewhere...

Hi (first post here, so hello everyone! 8) )

I have the SiSL2 crankset, the spider ring and the new 109mm BB complete set. Absolutely love it.

I weighed the whole lot, and it came to...

568g

That is 568g in total for the following;

Left and right crank arms
Chainring
Chainring lock ring
BB cups
Bearings
Spacers/bearing covers/wave spacer, etc.
Axle

Amazing, considering my DA7900 chainset alone weighs 666g, and that is before I even started on the BB.

Here is the evidence... The BB and axle is underneath (the only way I could get it to balance on the scales!). I put the spacers, wave ring, etc on the BB set.
