I received the frame (58cm) and it's light. I couldn't believe it.

As i get to building it up, a couple of questions:

1. I'm using a Wheels Mfg PF30 OUT and they recommend a 100% PTFE lube, which I have. Interested in others' experience with installing the bottom bracket on this frame.
2. The cable guide sleeves are quite long. Am I correct to assume I should cut them to fit?


Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm using a Wheels Manufacturing bottom bracket, similar idea to Praxis but without the expanding collet. I asked about the PTFE lube as it was specified by Wheels Mfg but they've since replied to my email. Thanks again.

I finally completed my build. I'll get some pics up this weekend but my overall impression is very good. Much more sprightly than my CAAD10 and not flexy at all for my 77kgs. Not sure on a weight but I figure around 15lbs. I did my build wiht parts from the CAAD10 but with new wheels - DA9000 and Boyd wheels.
