    It would be great to get some stem and seatpost info. I'm looking at your Medium wondering if I'm going to be able to raise that post a little higher. If I can I assume a 120/ -5stem with a flat bar is going to do the trick.

    YB....I have a 100mm stem with -5deg. I can pull the seatpost out to max and give you a BB center to seat rails measurement if you like.

    That would be really helpful and I would appreciate it. How much is still in the seat tube right now? Looks like you should be able to get another inch or so out of that SAVE post.


    I would also love to see some more pix too if you get that better camera. Right now I anticipate going mtn. tubular on my Flash 1 with a 3X10 Sram XX/XO component mix. Edge rims and now I just need to decide on hubs and leaning towards 28 spoke....

    With the post out to max, it's 770mm (77cm) from center of BB to seat rails.

    Hey Trauma Md
    COUPLE QUICK QUESTIONS
    1) Why 42-28 combo and not 39-26 normal 29er setup?
    2) What spindle did u use for the cannondale cranks? 131 or 132

    1. Just the gearing I am used to running. The cassette is 11-32. It's a pretty light bike and I love to climb, so it won't be any different than what I've been running on my previous 29er's.

    2. Using the 132. The 131 is for 68mm only. Even though the Cannondale Flash Carbon manual says it's a 68mm shell, it is really a 73.

    Cool bike and nice pix!

    The gearing however hurts just looking at it. You must be able to sustain 350 watts plus at LT. I don't love the idea of putting a triple on my Flash but don't see anyway around it. Guess I'll end up with XX on the Scalpel and some kind of mish mash on the Flash 29.

    Amillmtb: Yes. Keeps my brakes and shifters out wide...and I don't have big hands anyway...

    HAL: I have always run 140's on my 29 and 26ers. I'm about 60kg so there's not much to stop

    YB1: Thanks a lot, I have finally redeemed myself

    I've got a Flash 1 full bike coming with the FSA K Force triple, and I figure the 42-27 combo on the FSA 386 crankset would be just about perfect gearing for a Flash (without the obscene expense of going to XX and 10 spd.). Oddly, FSA doesn't list a carbon 386 crankset with BB30, although they do have an alloy Afterburner crank in that configuration. Has anyone thought about the 386 for the Flash?

    Yup... plan on doing the same thing you are. I don't have the $$$ for XX, so I'll keep with 2x9 and make my chainrings a bit smaller (used to run 29-44 rings). Should be fun, if my bike ever shows up!!!

    Oh, and there is a 386 carbon BB30 crankset... saw one this past weekend.

    What is the rear hub that is coming on the ZTR Arch wheelset that is coming on the 29er 1 carbon? It is not listed on Cannondale's web site. I have heard that it might be a DT 240, but it was never confirmed.
