I noticed that the carbon Arundel cages come with their own mounting hardware, and I wanted to get opinions on what mounting hardware would be the best to use. I can use the silver ones that came with it, or the standard ones that come with the cervelo r5/s5. Is one set a different material? I would think to use the ones that come with the bike, but Arundel must have included their screws for a reason, right?

Edit: Also, what's the recommended torque for carbon cages?

Use the one that comes with the cage. It has got smaller head so it wont scratch your bottle when you insert them

The ones that come with your Cervelo are nice because they are aluminum. Unfortunately they will not work because the head is too tall. The ones that come with the cage will fit but are steel and are very heavy. This is weight weenies, I use the Schmolke carbon screws M5x20

You need a button head screw like Arundel supply to allow bottle clearance. The ones you got were steel but you can find aluminum

I used the Arundels on my R3. Honestly don't know where the "original" Cervelo ones are at this point... :oops:
