Anyone use this plastic replacement part for the metal one that Factor uses for the fork/hose routing?

I did as well. More for curiosity. Although the fork steerer insert should be light and do the same job given that it is squeezed in the flat ‘D’ are on front of the steerer. I was actually surprised that Factor used aluminum or similar material there and it was quite beefy/heavy.

I have to remove one spacer as I left the steerer longer just to dial in fit. I’ll probably replace it then, when I trim off the excess.

Pretty light-hearted and not super nitty-gritty, but an enjoyable review.

I also bought the stem support and spacers but not the seat clamp. Noticed some seat posts as well but I already have the Darimo. Might be a more cost effective way to lose some weight.

When you’re saying stock Factor bottom bracket? If so, the answer is yes. Should work with no issues. A thin .5mm on DS is recommended by THM.

I have a Hambini in mine.
I don't think this is correct. THM has a 30mm axle, Shimano 24mm- how will the standard b/b for Shimano work with THM??

Factor include Wheels Manufacturing 24mm adapters that slide into each side of the 30mm BB. The included CeramicSpeed T47A is 30mm as well and the adapter are part of the frameset package.

More paint needed to cover up black carbon. I think the chrome is clear over raw carbon so I'm guessing that the chrome will be lighter.

I think the Flicker is clear over raw - I'm looking at mine right now and I can see the texture of the carbon.

When speaking to Factor, they said Chrome and Flickr are almost identical in weight and the lightest option.
