i could reduce more weight. I didn't cut off seatpost and it't still 420mm. Might need to reorder 320mm. I ordered seatpost with longer length than I thought. also, I have ordered schmolke tlo expander to change. Anyhow, frame is too heavy due to aluminum. It's 1.17kg for frame and forks was 378grams. Which means even taken 1.5kg for only frame sets.

The Mcfk seatpost has a very specific clamping range. I'm thinking you're outside of the clamping zone which means it's likely going to crack. Mcfk puts 3k on the back to highlight the clamping zone. If you aren't in that range, you shouldn't be riding it.

Very nice CAAD12 build! Probably the nicest one I've seen so far. :D :thumbup: Having built this bike up with so many carbon parts, why didn't you spec a SuperSix Evo HM instead of this alu frame?

I like metal parts! I just bought a CAAD12 frameset myself, albeit on a whim, but I always wanted one. My aim is 5.5kg but with mostly metal parts (thus fewer carbon parts than yours).

Beautiful Bike! :-D
A quick question, how are the brakes, THM Fibula ? are they on par with the Ultegra R8000 or the Dura Ace for modulation?

Love the silver cables. Did you chase the front brake housing internally with a regular brake cable? Or did the links go directly into the frame?

I did a CAAD 12 build (not quite like this lol, mine is almost all alloy) but I assume you're talking about the rear brake cable? I did mine with nothing inside, just cable stops at the entry and exit - it doesn't rub on anything inside so it's been fine like that. Same thing for the rear derailleur.

That's right, I meant the rear brake. Good to know that cable stops were sufficient. Jagwire does indicate to use regular brake housing, but sounds like that may not be required. The rear derailleur doesn't actually route into the frame, so there's no issue.

Sorry to bump the thread but I can't send PM just yet. I too use the dust cover KP253 on a CAAD12 Black Inc but it doesn't sit flush on the head tube like yours do. Did you use something as a spacer?

Beauty of a bike. I have a caad12 and want to use the hollow gram crankset with ultegra di2 that I am planning to add. Can you post a link for the bottom bracket you used please? This should work as the hollow gram also has a 30 MM axle.

Thanks,

Alan
