You've nailed it. Chapeau.

I have those same skewers on 3 of my bikes, never had any problems, love them (one set is on a set of r-sys slr's like yours too).

Yeah there are lots of places I could swap things and still make big weight loss. As it is though, it's rock solid and super dependable. I've had enough of bare carbon saddles etc.

Thanks. Ti bolts were just purchased from eBay. I've used various sellers, but now only buy from ones based in the UK that state the grade of Ti they sell. I had a cheap Ti bolt from a Taiwanese seller snap at way less then the expected torque. When snapped it was easy to see that the structure of the metal wasn't dense at all. It looked like it was a cast part with air bubbles!

Pretty sweet. just needs a tidy up of the cables. Remove the adjusters, shorten the lengths & then your done.

The PF30 Bottom Bracket supplied by Cannondale as part of the Hollowgram kit collapsed during the London-Surrey 100. I literally ground to a halt at 55miles and had to get the broom wagon off the circuit. I think the design of the Cannondale unit is flawed. Although it's very lightweight with its separate press-in cups, the design allows the cups to be misaligned when installed which puts the axle and bearings under huge strain. So, I decided to try a unit with the bearings already installed into cups and one that when installed, the 2 parts press together which will ensure alignment. The finished install also has to increase stiffness as there's essentially an extra tube formed that the axle runs through. Obvious downside is weight. I weighed the parts but forgot the numbers and didn't make a note. It's about an extra 50g overall though.

It pressed in really easily with hardly any pressure. I put the new SiSL2 axle in the freezer before installing it and it slid in through both bearings, showing how well both cups were aligned.

So far, I'd recommend this WheelsMfg BB if you have PF30. It seems a huge improvement.
