    Just to clarify, "Evol" is not the shock but the air can. "Float DPS" is the shock and it can be run with regular or high volume positive or negative air cans. However, I suspect Fox is only selling them with Evol air cans since they're pushing that "technology" right now. For a bike like this I'd choose the low volume positive/low volume negative air can.
    Keep the Country country.

    This color is so much nicer than the green that comes on the carbon 4 in the US.

    I also asked Quarq and this is their answer:

    Hi Goran,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. Unfortunately we do not have a power meter crank set option for the Scapel Si frame due to the AI offset. I do apologize for this inconvenience and please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Kind regards,
    Rebecca

    I'm hoping you can help me out. I got a Wheels Manufacturing Press Fit 30 Thread Together BB installed at the shop, but I notice now that when riding the chain movement isn't as smooth. If I put the bike on the stand and slowly pedal, it looks as if the chain is not leaving the crankset smoothly. Every couple links or so they "stick" to the crank ring as they leave and make their way to the rear derailleur. That's the best that I can describe it. Improper install? Chain line messed up? Spacer issue? Any help could be greatly appreciated. I'm going to back to shop tomorrow, but thought I'd check with posters here that might have some insight.

    Thanks!

    I asked a rep about the 7.5x2.0 shock on the scalpel since my RS monarch is basically 1 step above utterly useless...I was told it would void the warranty. Were you told differently or just didnt ask?

    I'm 5'7 on a good day, smaller guy, no long arms or legs and the medium fits me perfectly. I demo'd the small and medium and found the small was nimble but I was constantly having to "push" myself back from the bars and the medium just felt good. Initially was worried I'd gone up too big but couldn't imagine riding the small now. Hope that helps

    No I was not told anything like that.Funny thing is that my cannondale dealer is also the fox agent in my country so not only do they supply they also fitted the shock for me.
    I'm pretty sure it won't do anything to warranty or they would be reluctant to do that.

    I believe it is without a rear shock! Especially considering this press release.

    ****WARNING****
    PERIODICALLY CHECK PIVOT HARDWARE TORQUE


    Was rollin on the Scalpel a couple days ago and a screw from my lower pivot went missing. So far from what i can tell, to get any piece of the hardware you have to order the entire kit for $100
    See thread here:
    Source for Scalpel/Habit frame pivot hardware?

    I advise to remove each one, clean the threads, apply blue loctite, torque to spec. If you do not use loctite then def periodically check the torque spec.
    What is the torque spec? Manual says 3Nm, but the screws have 5Nm printed right on em...

    If you check Cannondale Habit thread, you will find out, that this is a very known issue!

    Please also note, that the kit will be useful for you in the future. These pivot axles last about a season usually and later you need to change them anyway. Wear marks will develop over time and you will feel rear end play from side to side. Something like this 2016 Spitfire pivot shaft hole wear

    So no need to panic!

    Cannondale directly changed the Specs to 5NM for the lock'r screws !!!

    If you use lower torque the pivot axle can move like some customers had this issue.

    Many ways to do that but i believe the only correct way although the most time consuming would be to revalve the shock with a thinner face shim.

    I was servicing my rear wheel, I got the hub axle broken, and I was wondering how much torque requires the end cup that holds the freehub.

    There's no indication about the Nm required, but I noticed if it's to tight then the freehub doesnt' spin freely.

    Just to be clear I mean the end cup on the right:

    Hi rupps5! Did you test the bike with this setup chart? I have 95kg and using 230psi with the rebound about 2/3 clicks from fast. The chart says to use 161 with the opposite rebound adjust. With less the 220 psi I felt the bike too soft, losing energy. Thanks!

    With a weight of 150# I had the shock at 105psi with around 10 clicks of rebound +/- 2 from fast depending on conditions/ trails. Rebound was adjusted to no oscillations after initial compression.

    Does anyone know what max size chainring on the front will the Si frame accept (on stock SiSL cracks)? I'm currently running 32T but want to have more (like 34-36T)

    So I decided to swop my shock around for better bottle clearance. Seems to work a treat. Lever is very close to top tube at full stroke. But no touching yet.

    Standard 36 teeth on eagle crank



    Garbaruk Melon 6mm offset (oval) 36 teeth works great. But i think 38 should fit perfectly, too.

    Has anybody had this happen? Any recourse with Cannondale you're aware of?
    Cawley,

    Did you live with the channel under the BB shell, or did you replace the frame? Did you contact Cannondale about the issue? I ask because I am in the same situation.

    Has anyone tried or considered fitting some 27.5+ wheels on a Scalpel Si?

    If so what diameter rims and tires would possibly fit?
