Couple of questions, what do you guys use to plug the FD hole? I dont have my chain rings just yet but kind of questioning the FD/Crank clearance... (Last Pic)

Hi airpoppoff. I have the same frame, same crank arms and etap.

Once you have it dialed in the problem you will have is the limit screw pertrudes too far so scrapes the inside of the crank arm. Sram can supply a shorter limit screw apparently to resolve this but in my case I didn't know this at the time so I filed the screw down a little to avoid the clash.

With regards the stopper it should of been supplied with the frame. If not already installed then in a little baggy with bits and bobs in it. There is no closed stopper provided for the rd cable exit hole unfortunately. I took the one designed for di2 which has a small hole and put a drop of silicone in it to seal it.

Best of luck with the build, it really is a pleasure to ride!

Awesome! Thanks for your help, I dug through the little bag and couldnt find anything to fit that hole, however it did come with a RD hole plug that has a specialized logo on it. I'll plug it with some black silicon then. And good news on the FD.

Thanks again,

That "S" logo stopper is actually for the seat post clamp access hole.

That's true. They do state that an authorized dealer should assemble it though. Of course, my LBS put the plug in the rear derailleur hole anyway. I had a piece of soft rubber I cut to fit the rear derailleur hole and didn't worry about the front derailleur cable exit hole.

Well, Yeah! I love to support our LBS but best part about the little bikes is they trade them in 50% towards a bigger one every year.

Reason: This is where the quote comes in handy as you are referring to something that has been written a couple of posts above.

I used to work at a shop that did this -- Alameda Bicycle in Alameda, CA.

Great for the parents and kids. And it built good relationships with customers that eventually came back for Tarmacs and whatnot... don't think I sold any eTap S-Works, though! Really looking forward to updates on this.

Yeah its really awesome they do. And who wants to learn how to ride a 40lb bike with 12" wheels???? :noidea:

Thank you, I should have it built within the next couple of weeks, most everything else comes in next week.

This frame with this crankset with PM looks awesome. One of the best bike on this forum. One you mount here,that wouldn't be black are S-works tires in cotton version with yellow walls

Nice build! Re the front derailleur clearance, when I upgraded my Etap Tarmac to a Quarq, they had to install spacers. Hope this helps. Looking forward to the finished build!

Pls ignore the dirt, consider it proof I ride the hell out of my bike!
