That's a cool bike. I had a 14' Scalpel and liked it a lot except for the double hydraulic remote control, it gave me a lot of trouble. Other from that the bike handles nice! I can't imagine the new one.grover wrote: ↑Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:54 amI'm on a 2019 Scalpel Hi Mod Carbon 1 - https://www.cannondale.com/en/USA/Bike/ ... adf8d60ca7
10.48kg - changes from stock
- Maxxis Ikon 2.2 TR 3C Exo - heavier than stock but work better for me (I don't have good luck with air staying in Schwalbe)
- Ritchey WCS grips - lighter, have been using for years and suit my hands
- Tune Speedneedle - lighter, and actually comfortable for me
- XTR M9100 pedals - because you need pedals to ride the bike
- XX1 Quarq powermeter - heavier, but you gotta know your watts
Ideally I'd change
- seatpost to KCNC Ti Pro Lite
- stem to kalloy ultralite
- handlbar to mt zoom
- wheelset to nextie ultralight
$1500 to save 500 grams.
But I probably won't. Just had my first kid, would prefer to spend my time riding the bike than wrenching. I'll just live vicariously through you
That would be a nice upgrade. As long as you swtich wheels you're going to feel the weight savings because it's rotational weight.
I don't have much time for wrenching either, a buddy helps me with the trickier stuff.
I have a race tomorrow and haven't been able to start the build, the package with the XTR shifter and derailleur got lost on the mail and Jenson sent another one. I should start the build by monday except the wheels, since they're hand built, we still need to measure the rims and hubs to get the spoke length.
Little by little getting there
