Probably covered here before, but please remind me what method Seka employs to route the cables internally? Through headset? D shaped or drilled steerer tube?

Here is the build instruction that Seka includes as a QR code in the box:

It uses the standard oversized headset style with the cables/hoses going through the compression ring.

Great looking build.

At that saddle height, how close are you to the minimum insertion line on the seatpost?
~30mm away from the min. insertion line

Can anyone tell me if they're using light bikes WR 32mm wide rims with this frameset please.
Wondering on clearance, thanks

I use the WR50 rims 32mm wide/ 25mm internal.

Clearance is ok. I can take a picture, but I am away from home a couple of days.

I use GP5000 30mm tire that is 33mm real with the rims. GP5000 32mm tire (real 34,5mm) also clears, but with less margin.

Took a quick picture after finishing the build today. I like the frame a lot :)

It's a stunner.
Do you have any major issue with toe overlap? Also, what's saddle to bar drop?

A pic would great when you're back.

I'd use a max 30 gp5000 but most likely a 28 which I know will fit but just considering my options as tyres blow up big on these rims.

Many thanks

Pre-ordered June 15th, RDC Naked Black in small. 0mm Setback / 110x400 cockpit
Got the email to pay off the remaining balance last night.
Mine is almost identical but going for 380mm bars.

Pre-ordered July 20th. Got the balance payment a couple of days ago and just paid. Also €200 shipping to London, UK.
Hi Michael, did Cycling 100 give you any indication regarding TAX, or tax is included in the shipping? I'm based in Hampshire and about to place an order.

It's included in the shipping cost. I spoke with them last week to verify this.

Hello guys, I pre-ordered my exceed RDC from C100 July 6th and received UPS tracking after full payment on Sept 27th. Order to UK. Got a request to pay duty which I did immediately on 29th Sept, now there's no hide nor hair from UPS and they don't know where the delivery is since last duty paid update in Honk Kong. I've contacted C100 to get them to chase but not heard anything which is concerning me. What do you guys reckon my next steps should be or should i just be patient as been less than 10 days overall?
Cheers

That's odd. AFAIK duty is pre-paid in the €200 shipping costs. Normally you'd only be asked to pay customs once the package had landed in the UK. How much extra did you have to pay?

There are lots of ups scams at the moment so I'd pick it up with their support team.

The UPS request for "Import COD" payment was definitely legit from UPS. They requested 99Euros. I paid it and C100 gave a refund on that value (surprisingly quickly). I agree I would've thought that UPS would only ask for ICOD if it was already in the country. But on the tracking history last update it still shows it was in Hong Kong. I rang UPS they said I need to get the vendor to file a complaint on the UPS sender side, but C100 reply rate is diabolical, sent a couple emails over last few days with no reply.

C100 customer service and email response is shockingly poor. I was led to believe that shipping was via DPD and that the shipping fee included taxes, certainly to the UK. Ordered on 19th April, balance paid in mid July and still waiting. I've emailed them twice this week for an update but no reply....

Pre-order placed 10/08 and parcel reveived today 06/10. So 8 weeks total, not bad.

Really premium packaging.

Now the sad part : the weight --> 929g for the frame (RDC size M, with only the derailleur hanger and bottle cage bolts on it)

I was expecting something around 870-880...
