    My new F29

    Just thought I'd share with you all my new F29, started out with the stock bike, then made the following changes before it left the shop

    easton bars and post
    cannondale si stem
    ergon grips
    juicy carbons, 185 up front, 160 in the rear
    xt crank and cassette
    shimano 540's
    a rampage up front, an ignitor in the back

    Very nice. I like. One concern, might be an optical illusion, but would that front tire strike the bottom of the headtube once the lefty bottoms out? If so, bottoms up.

    Sweet looking ride. Nice to see the tires good and dirty.

    nice

    hey walter nice bike! I like your tire choice too out of curiosity do you happen to know the weight savings of the SI steerer/stem over the stock steerer and stem? i've been thinking about going the route myself

    enjoy

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Sorry, not exactly sure of the weight savings, I held the si stem in my hand before it was installed and it felt like next to nothing, didnt get a chance to hold the stock stem. I am actually going to the shop today, I will see if we can do a comparison

    I am pretty sure the weight savings from a normal c-dale stem and steerer to the SI combo is about 100 grams

    I got one tooo

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just took delivery of my cannondale 29er in team colours. Hit the trail today and it flys. I was doing stuff that semed a bit clumsy on my scalpel!! Two pics to look at, stock standard at the moment. Just one thing, my paint seems a bit "bumpy" very high gloss, but a bit of ripple through the paint. Is this normal???
