I continue to have problems with the lid for my draft box coming off when hitting bumps. I have the replacement lid (not original). I lost my tire lever in a race last weekend, but fortunately had no flat. Any ideas to secure? Is a better solution in the works?

Those who had this issue with the original lid used tape, I believe. It remains to be seen if the rate of occurrence on the new lid approaches that of the old one...and that would depend on all claims, not just the ones here on Slowtwitch.

posting here does nothing to get it recorded in our warranty & service system...only working with your dealer does that.

Next question: I want to buy the Garmin Vector for my SC 9.9. I don't have the bike yet but would like to order asap so the everything arrives around the same time. What size Vectors do I order? 12-15 mm spindle with 38 or 44mm pod or the 15-18mm spindle with the 44 mm pod? I cannot find the information anywhere and yes I have actually looked.

DA FC-9000 cranks, 170mm.

Thanks Carl.

Carl: Sizing question per the SC Fit chart.

Current measurements from a 2008 P3 size 58:

BB to back of aerobar pads: 446 (center of pad = 486)
Armpad Stack: 675 (aggressive) to 695 (moderate) -- I'd prefer the fit range using the spacer options only, not a change of stem. Change of spacer depending upon length of race. Electronic shifting so cable changes would be simplified.
Basebar height: 619 (can go +/- 2cm without issue)
Saddle height 796.

My saddle is an SMP PRO, so a little longer nose and I sit further back on the saddle, so the saddle sits pretty far forward on the existing clamp.

The chart seems to fit best for an XL frame and medium far stem. I'm only 6' tall but have a taller saddle height due to 165mm cranks. I'm not at the extremes of leg length as my inseam is 32".

Does this seem right?

for the relevant crank dimensions to plug into Garmin's picker tool, I get 13mm and 40mm on the 9000 cranks.

Your plan to have a 2cm pad stack range and doing so without changing stems is the only reason you're in the XL portion of the chart...nothing else about your fit or other measurements would have made me think anything beyond a Large. If you stick with that plan I might suggest going with the medium-near stem vs the medium far...both can hit your fit, but your pad reach is closer to the heart of the medium-near's range than the medium-far's.
