Thanks grover. I did finally figure it out at cannondale experts. com.

my steerer tube will be 110mm


I was wondering if I should go with an ceramic option for the top tube and bottom bracket bearings?

any ideas to save weight along the way? trying to save as much as possible right from the start

if you want to save weight buy the MCFK or darimo carbon steerer. that allows a standard 1-1/8th stem. if you get a decent stem you end up 200grams lighter overall than the stock steerer and stem.

Make sure you don't store that bike exposed in the sun, this Cannondale's orange paint work tends to fade really badly :(
