I do not have many miles on these chainrings yet but I have a ton of miles on my other sets and the ones that I have had the longest have about 3000km in them now. I do not race on them so they have been all training mile with a lot of big ring out of the saddle climbing lately and they are holding up very well.

I have decided to use the EE brakes on my new English build so this build will get the KCNC brakes back on it and that should drop me down to about 5880g for the build and under target weight.

also I have ordered the KMC X10SL chain...

how do you find this chain versus say the DA7900

I note on the zipp site they say 7900 is no good with their gear???

Here are some pictures of the Cervelo tuned post. As mentioned cut to 255mm and currently at 145g. As you can see I had to drill out one of the AX yokes to allow the bolt to enter from the top. Everything alright so far.

Awesome pics. Kick-ass tuning too! Fizik makes the best carbon rails in the business. :banana:

Re: My rebuild - SLC BSL 5890g - 12.98 lbs. OH YES BABY!

Postby BMANX » Sat Aug 21, 2010 4:58 pm

YES BABY! I DID IT!

I had a package in the mail yesterday with my BTP carbon cages that dropped the weight of my cages from 34g down to 24g for the pair and that was enough for the scale to drop down to 5890g / 12.98 on the build. I was so excited to see the numbers.

The best part of this is that I thought I would not without having to resort to a carbon saddle. So you know what is going to happen now. I am going lower. I am really thinking that the English build needs to have the EE brakes on it so the KCNC brakes will come out and that will drop about 30g off the build if not a bit more and then yes I can go with a carbon saddle and drop another 70goff the build. I can go sub 5800g for the SLC. This is getting stupid.

I LOVE IT!

Williamsf1 - I had to use standard chainring bolts on 3 out of the 4 positions. Fot the bolt that is used to attach the rings to the arm, you have to use their standard version but I instead of using their spacer, I had Fibre-Lyte make me one in carbon. No weight difference but pure bling. If you have carbon rings on carbon arms, you need to have a carbon spacer right?

As for the 7900 vs. KMC X10SL chain, I have no idea as the last time I used a Shimano chain was about 10 years ago. I stopped using a chain that requires a pin to attach each end. If it has a quick link or something like that then that is what I have been using.

The 7900 Chain is a quick link/master link chain now too. The Shimano chain is asymmetrical, whereas the KMC chain is not. The way its designed, the only advantage that should give you is slightly quicker shifting on the front. Not sure its noticeable or not. For what its worth, the KMC is lighter.

If you were to compare it to the 7800 chain, which is also made by KMC and uses a pin like bman said, you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

ok thanks so much....

I just bought the zipp cranks, and noted that zipp state that the 7900 chain doesn't work that well... so bought the same chain as you!!! ( I smell a theme here, what have you started me on!!! haha )

I will have to contact fibre-lyte and get the same chainrings also....

this is going to get quite cool / out of control easily!!!!
