Sugarcane help me out here, could you explain in detail your thm bb pf30 install on your frame, my drive side cup is loose by 0.5-1.0mm. Did you use spacers? Loctite ? I'm open to any suggestion before I go from pf30 to permanent pf30 to bsa adapter with carbon fiber resin

I've got a few finishing touches on a climber I did.
Finished ready to ride is at 5.64kg (12.4lbs) now. That is with water bottle cage, spoon (heavy) Garmin mount and DA Pedals. I can shave another bit off that, but close enough for now.

Cranks are DA, and full Di2. Brakes are the KCNC things. They don't stop well. BB is WheelsMfg. Power Cordz brake cables (Di2 shifters). Stem is Ritchey SoloStream. Wheels ready to ride with cassette (RECON), tires (Vittoria Speed G+), glue, skewers(KCNC Ti) - 1380g.

The goal was power transfer 1st, light 2nd. I will stick with the DA parts.

While I have the Jagwire linked housing, Jagwire is putting out some new super light shift housing and cables this year (saw a quick review from tapei) that would probably be the best option. Fairwheel has some good deals on the Schmolke rims.

I'm surprised to see any stem caps on top of the steerer tube. once the stem is pinched onto the steerer tube, take off the cap!
