Yes very interested and now for use that have these posts, we just need to sort out the top section and what the best option above the rails is.

Great work. I wish I had your skills!

But I can change a diaper with one hand so I guess my skills at this moment in time are just in a different direction. HA HA!

Impressive! :D (swimmers have an advantage with that task. We learn from an early age to breath solely through our mouths. It's a useful tool when avoiding certain smells!)

Finished and prepared to send them to the two test riders.

7.9g

8.4g

Not perfect, but good enough to test it. Hope that I soon manage to send it, I'm really interested how it will turn out...


If it turns out well I can make them more - some new and better cradles.

Well I can tell you that this craddle will now be matched up with an AX Lightness yokes & ti-bolts that are being shipped from the UK so this should make for an intersting project. If everything works out and I get my WARD ti spindles, my build should be close to 5890g very soon.

I will take lots of pictures.

By the way they look great.

I think it should be fine. I will know how everything fits together once I have the parts in my hands. As mentioned I will be doing other mods at the same time but I will only use the craddle first to see the fit and check weight loss. It will be interesting to see if this carbon cradle matched up with something like a modified AX yoke and ti bolt works out. I will have to drill out the one yoke to allow the bolt to enter from the top as this is the way Cervelo does the front bolt.

I am very sure that it will arrive this week. I am farther north and west so it might take a few extra days. I have a lot of items coming in this week so maybe the post office is overwhelmed again. HA HA.

First ride with it today. Just an hour, but I hit some good cracks in the road with keeping my full weight on the saddle. I usually take my ass off the seat when I hit a bump since I have carbon rails on my Zoncolan saddle, but I wanted to see what kind of impact it would take. Everything is fine. I will carry my original cradle in my seat bag with my tools for a while, but I don't foresee a problem. If anything, the narrower bearing distance of the cradle will put more stress on the saddle rails. I would think carbon rails would fail before this cradle would fail.

I will continue with the testing though!

Weight saving is 14 grams according to my scale. Quite happy about that!

ME SAD. NO MAIL TODAY. Damn postal workers. Probably did not feel like carrying the extra 8.4g around all day.
