That's a gorgeous bike. I've got a 2012 EVO with 7900 Di2 and you've made me super jealous, despite the fact my own bike is perfectly awesome. Well done, sir!

Why spend all the money on such a nice bike and get the least accurate powermeter on the market for it? Surely you could get a Hollowgram SRM (pretty light itself) by having SRM install the proper spider on the arms?

If people want to discuss the Stages Power Meter that isn't even on the bike, which appears to be more controversial than Rapha clothing on this board, there is a great thread thread for that over here:

Please feel free to use this thread to discuss the topic at hand. This is not a power meter debate thread.

I updated the post with battery pics and a screenshot of the firmware update process.

Beautiful bike! I have the older Di2 on my C59 and what thinking about upgrading to the newer lighter version just because.

Sweet! Thanks for the photos!

Looks like the battery enclosure is bonded to the post some how, can't wait to get my hands on it.

edit: read your blog post and got my answers, thanks!

Awesome!

A really think zip or two tie looks a lot neater than the shimano-provided strap thingy that holds the junction box to the stem.

I really like this build a lot and the EVO is a pretty damn ugly frame thanks to the crap paint cannondale has been throwing on 'em. I like yours, though. The cranks, though, are awesome!!!!!

Apparently calfee does the bonding of that enclosure to the post so my shop sent my cut Enve post to Calfee to get setup. It should be back in a few days.

Thanks, I'm really happy with the way this bike looks, and I thought it would be semi-ugly. I bought it for the ride/tech/cranks and not the looks. I think the pictures on the Cannondale site really do it a diservice. The paint is shockingly good compared to some of the other Evo paint jobs that look cheap/boring.

The wheelset in the dealerbook is listed as Ksyrium SLR

That said, the rear wheel is a mix of carbon and zircal spokes.

I think they changed it...
on the US website it was with R-SYS slr and i just looked now and they changed it for Ksyrium aswell...

in the end, both are almost the same wheel... i think ksyrium is even more aero!!

well, great bike anyway!!
instead of a powercrank i think my upgrade will be racing wheels (probably 303 tubulars).
