I ride the same exact height and went with the large. You can see what it looks like a few posts up.

I have a f29 carbon.
I have ordered the stuff to go 1x11 but I have just seen this post.

I have ordered an Absolute Black sram gxp (6mm offset)

will this foul the chainstay then?

will a sram 11speed cassette work ok on the original rear 10sped hub?

Depends if the hub is 11 speed compatible!? But i dont think so.

What Crank are you using? there are different axles.

Since this is where all the F-si folks are lurking...trying to comprehend all this new crank/bb lingo

Building up a 2010 Flash hi-mod frame. Want to put a RaceFace Next SL G4 cranks on there. As it has a 30mm spindle it will work fine with a bb30 bb, right?

Hi,
My friend's FSI after a race.
On a trail in some moment he felt something like a flat tire. He stopped and looked at the wheel, was fine. Checked the QR and tried ride further, but still felt something wrong.
Stopped again and then he saw the cracked frame.
The frame in theory is under warranty, but distributor for Central Europe - Aspire Sports (Czech republic), based on pictures said that was a mechanical damage - no warranty :(

Cheers

shooooooocking! Big brand manufacturer blames cracked frames on crashes or component failure. If you have a Cannondale bike shop around, maybe bring the frame to them and see if you can get some leverage on the warranty claim.

I'm sorry but it does look like the result of an impact.

What are the options regarding aftermarket wheels for the FSi? Do you need to have wheels customs built by a wheel builder with 6mm offset? Or do some manufactures make FSi specific wheel-sets?

Custom wheels is the way to go (shops will also build them for you, if you say it's for an F-Si). Check out my bike, one of my friends helped me build the wheels on it. No big deal :)
