Looking for a photo (can't find anything!) of the bottom of a CX Zero Evo.
Got a new frameset, didn't come with a cable guide.

Do these have custom cable bb guides or just a standard one?


Found this - off a cx zero disc. Same as on the rimbrake?

Here you go! Not the best angle, but I confirm it’s the same custom BB cable guide on my rim brake frame. Sorry yours didn’t include the guide.

PS - That “Made in Taiwan” sticker was the first thing to go. Must have saved 0.01 g! :D

Thanks
I think I'm missing the entire bag of frame parts -
Missing:
-cable guide
-Rubber grommets for the electronic holes included? and that hole you can see forward of the BB in your picture?
-Is there a grommet that goes into the end of the chainstay where the RD exits?
-does it include a steerer expander?

That made in Taiwan sticker is a good thing, not a bad thing!

Nah.
It's a constant reminder that you can't afford a C60 ;)



frf (aus distro) is sending me a cable guide so all good.

LOL, exactly!!! Prosecco taste, birra budget, amirite?

As best I can remember, you should have received the following:
- headset (bearings, compression ring, cover, top cap + bolt)
- fork expander
- seatpost clamp + bolt
- inline cable barrel adjusters (2)
- rubber blanking grommet (1)
- plastic chainstay grommet
- bottle cage bolts (4)
- recessed brake nut (front fork)
- derailleur hanger
- packet of carbon assembly paste
- two weird tubular rubber grommets (?) whose purpose I still haven't figured out

That's what I got anyway.

Thanks for the list. I think the frame must be an ex display - the tubing had been pulled. Looks like I'm missing more than I expected

- recessed brake nut - missing this. Will a standard nut work or is this specific for the fork?
- blanking grommet - is this for the electronic FD hole or the charge port underneath?
- chainstay grommet - frf sending me this as well.

- and more stuff missing...

Any recessed brake nut should do the trick. The original was 28 mm long end-to-end (25 mm end-to-flange). I replaced mine with a titanium nut from Toronto Cycles.

Electronic FD hole or charge port? Pick one. Maybe I was supposed to get two grommets? In any case I ended up using generic rubber grommets from an auto parts store to seal both holes. Found a size I was juuuust able to squeeze in.

Good thing the distributor is sending you the cable stop for the chain stay. That one’s kinda critical…

Good luck with your build. Let me know how it turns out. Mine is currently just a hair over 7 kg (size 50S) with room for improvement.

Often the fork brake nuts are specific to the fork. Just make sure you can get at least 6 threads engaged without the brakenut bottoming out (too long). Less than 6 threads engaged (Campy's recommendation) and then you start to compromise holding strength etc.

Distributor fail. Sent me a generic cable guide that doesn't come close to fitting. Can't really cut it up to suit either.
And the rd cable grommet sent is the wrong size as well
Back to sq one. Might try to get a shop to source it this time.

Building up a cx zero at the moment. Has anyone done this with Di2? I am pondering the best way to route the di2 cable into the frame. Any recommendations/photos much appreciated!
