    Looking forward to setting it up, and trying it out on Friday afternoon, then racing it on Sunday...
    That could be the right weight for a Large. A medium = 9,765 kg

    Wait for the 2014 models, that's what I'm doing

    Looks like you are in the same area as me jbbikerider. I had the shop swap out for black spokes and logos on the wheels, otherwise looks to be about the same bike.

    You brought some Enve wheels didn't you? I'd say that was a success. Nice of the bike shop to throw in those accessories

    Because right after the jump there was a corner.
    Btw, mostly of the time when I'm riding technical tracks, I'm riding with one or two fingers on the brakes. Always a quick response!

    I guess my bike classifies as a 29er too. Just posted in the trail thread.

    Cannondale F29 Carbon 3 Custom with mods

    Here is my new Cannondale F29 C3. I recently sold my 2010 26 Flash that i had posted on the "Post your Flash" thread. Weighs in at 8.9kg. Flys!!!
    All original parts are boxed and stored for resale.

    New parts include:

    1 x 10 Shimano XTR drive train
    Shimano XTR race brakes
    Cannondale SI crank
    EggBeater 11Ti Pedals
    CruveCycling wheel set

    A tip to other F29 owners. Note how i have routed the cabling for the rear mech. It is tied to the brake hose and runs down the drive side seat stay and maintains full outer casing. I recommend this routing for increased shifting performance in muddy conditions. The straighter cable line and full length outer generally improve shifting in any condition. And improve the longevity of your cables. IMO

    Hey Brucesleeve,

    So glad I found your post 'cause what you've done is exactly what I'm trying to build up. I have the same spider for a RaceFace narrow wide 32 tooth chain ring for 1x10 setup. What chainring bolts did you use for your bike and have you modified anything else in the conversion? Also, what shifter are you using?
    I love your idea about the rear cable route. Am going to take that on too. Always bewildered me somewhat that Flashes have exposed cables on the down tube to get covered in dust and crud. Seems counter intuitive to me given its something one would want to keep clean and reduce friction on.

    Cheers,

    Abes

    Hey Abes,
    Yeah, having been a bike mechanic for many years I was baffled that Cannondale hadn't evolved its cable management on the flash since my first 26 flash in 2010. Every race I did on that I had to recable it. This works a lot better.

    I'm using the 3x10 hollow gram spider on the middle setting. With single speed c/ring bolts.
    I'm using an xtr 10sp shifter that is directly mounted to the brake.
    The chain guide is the e-thirteen e-type direct mount with an e-thirteen 34t ring. Cassette is 11-36 so I get quite a wide range and no chain rub. All of this set up using the xtr clutch type rear mech is perfect for me.

    One other thing ill mention is when I removed the original SRAM crank to install the Cannondale crank, I found that the new bb shells have a machined in bearing race that eliminates the need for circlips. It however also had circlips installed. These need to be removed to get the spacing on your Cannondale crank to work properly. If you leave them in you will overload your bearings, as you will see the wavy washer press flat as you are tightening.

    Good luck, any other questions please ask. And share pics when you're done.

    Brucesleeve,
    Cheers for the quick reply and extra advice. I've got an XTR ispec shifter coming but will be going with an XT shadow plus rear derailleur. Thanks for the detail about the chain ring setting. I'm going to do mine sans chain guide as the word on the narrow wide RaceFace chainring is that they don't drop, especially with a clutch mech. The reality is I'll come off the bike before the chain does if anything gets hairy enough to threaten displacing it!
    Will be sure to get pics up as soon as I can get the bike built. Probably about a month from now but I live in hope it'll get done sooner.
    Cheers again.
