Don’t use anything rougher or you’ll take twice as long getting the scratches out (I tried 400 grit ..)
My fork (super six) was advertised as 1&1/8” - 1&1/4” in the eBay listing.
It’s not - it’s 1&1/8” - 1&1/2” and this does not fit.
I did not think to check this before stripping the paint.
Does anyone need a super six fork with uncut 295mm steerer?
Unfortunately the project is stalled until I sort out a new fork. If anyone needs the Super Six fork I have PM me..
The problem I have being my height and with the 63cm frame I ride is that I need a lot of steerer tube. Even without any extra spacers I need (220 + 15.6 + 40mm) aroun 280mm of steerer tube, making it hard to find forks secondhand.
I am likely going to replace the fork with a 3T Rigida Pro - there are lots of NOS ones from Focus Izalco Team's on German Ebay with uncut steerers. 395g painted ..
Have got the headset and the Ti bolts for the deraileur hanger and seatpost now. Also a carbon top cap and FSA carbon 13mm tapered spacer.
I’ve changed my aero bike over to an integrated bar and stem this freeing up my carbon FSA SL-K cockpit for this build, however I may change the stem for a 130mm as the top tube is a little shorter than my Propel.
I will also need to run a slamthatstem top cap to copy the fit of my Propel.
Here’s where the parts pile is at thus far :
I’m keeping an eye out for Dura Ace 9000 parts to mix and match with the Ultegra 6800 I already have as well. I’ve always wanted to try longer cranks.
The 3T fork is from a 2014 Focus Izalco Max, hence the OEM paint. It came in at 395g with 300mm of steerer and the paint. I will repaint it later.
I have finally written a parts/build list with weights (most actual, a few claimed or guesstimates) and the asterisks are for the bits I still need to buy.
Unless I’m totally off it should come in at around 7.4kg with an average set of 1500g clincher wheels and good tyres and tubes. I’m happy with that given the budget nature of the build and Ultegra components. It’s a good starting point!
Build parts list:
Frame: 2013 Cannondale CAAD10 63cm - 1305g with derailleur hanger
Fork: 3T Rigida Pro - 395g
Headset: FSA C-33 Orbit, FSA 15mm carbon tapered spacer, 1x5mm spacer, top cap - 92g
Expander plug - 40g
Bottom bracket: KCNC BB30 Adaptor - 115g / $62.70 *
Seatpost clamp: Cannondale - 13g w/Ti bolt
FSA SL-K compact handlebar 44cm - 235g (claimed)
FSA SL-K stem 130mm -~165g
FSA SL-K SB0 27.2mm seatpost - 211g w/Ti bolts
Saddle: Fabric Tri Race Flat - 180g / $124 + postage (sigma sports) *
Bar tape: FSA Power Touch - 39g / $34.49 + post (wiggle) *
Groupset: Shimano Ultegra 6800
Shifters: 419g / $ *
Front derailleur: braze-on - 86g
Rear derailleur: short cage - 193g
Crankset: 53/39t, 175mm - 694g / $ *
Pedals: Look Keo 2 Max w/Ti spindles - 220g
Brakes: Shimano Ultegra 6800 - 340g
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 6800 - 11-28 - 251g
Chain: KMC X11 SuperLight - 237g / $47 + postage (chain reaction) *
Cables: Alligator i-Link - ~80g / ~$105 ebay *
Skewers: KCNC Ti - 41g
Subtotal: 5325g with skewers, but without wheels/tyres/tubes
So about 7470g for the total with guesstimate ~1500g wheels, 205g tyres and 75g tubes.
What I want is some Reynolds attack carbon clinchers which would bring it down to <7.4kg.
FSA bearings (does anyone know if their SL bearings are much lighter?)
FSA carbon tapered spacer (15mm) and plain 5mm carbon spacer
Ti bolt m6x30
Total 92g I’m sure it could be improved upon.
Fork expander is 40g - definitely changing that later on.
