Make sure you take a lot of pictures of everything, please.

I've got pictures showing this step to completion, but I didn't have time to post 'em. That cable is complete & it works perfectly. It's so clean now!

Next step is either the front derailleur or the shifting cables. I haven't decided. Next week I'm flying to Denver to get some assistance with modifying the battery to take that internal as well. :mrgreen:

I chopped my seatpost too since I'll be taking the battery into there. Nice weight savings. I should save that much again when I take the batteries out of the case.

So one cable down & 3 to go......

Is that your own cable or a stripped down Shimano one?

Those are my own cables. When I cut the cable to the RD there just wasn't enough wire length to work with to make the splice once I ran the cable thru the frame, so I used other wires. When I do the shifter wires there should be enought that I don't have to use other wires. I'll find out soon enough.

Pritch, where will you enter the shifting cables coming from the bars? The holes you used till now, were they already in the frame or did you have to do some drilling? :D

I'm going to drill a 5 mm hole in the top tube similar to the holes in the newer S2 & S3 models. But that hole needs to be within 10 mm of the headset. Those instructions are from Cervelo & drilling this hole will NOT void my warrantee. Pretty cool, eh?

That is pretty cool, but I can't believe your flying somewhere to get some battery help!!

Let me clarify: I'm going to Denver for business. While I am there I will be driving to Colorado Springs to pick up my brand spanking new SRM, having a Retul fit done by Todd Carver in Denver, and going to Boulder to do a ride with some guys there. It just happens that I'll be there when I need to do the battery modification so I'll be able to get help from someone who has more experience in this department.

Oh I know where you are going with this build and it is spectacular. Good work. I can not wait to see this completed. Now all you need to get is the custom remotes for the top of the bar so that you can have shifting from the drops, hoods and tops.

That is an option. You might get to see it later this year. I have to go to BC for 2 weddings this summer & fall. I'm hoping to bring the bike with me...

Bring it out and we can ride for sure. I should have my SLC completely finished by then as well as a few other builds.
