Hi all,

I'm just about finised building up a Cinelli Superstar disc with Ultegra R8000. This is my first build with disc and I'm concerned about the clearence between the cassette and dropout. The lockring has been torqued to 40 nm.

Is this ok ???

Looks normal to me.

Post a ride report. I'm always curious about these frames.

Nice looking bike. I'm guessing it is utilizing full length shift housing? As that cable path through the chainstay looks totally fubar.

Yes it does. The gear change is pretty smooth so far. I've had only the trainer when getting my fit sorted.

I had a quick spin yesterday evening and comparing it to my Ridley Fernix the rear end is a lot firmer. I was expecting the compliance to be the same but it's definitely firmer. Steerer seems to be quicker and feels pretty anchored on the front. Did a short couple of sprints and it seems responsive but I will find out more on short steep hills on my next route. There is a couple of niggles I have to sort out, the front derailleur on the big chain ring and 11 on the back gets a bit of rub, if move the cage too match over it rubs against the crank arm. The dropout hanger may be slightly bent as I get a bit rattling in the 11 and the limit screw is just about all out. Also the cause for initial post about clearence was due the bolts for the dropsout not being fully screwed in only 1 of them had loctite, better QC needed here.
