it'll vary by stem size.

my practice is to run something longer than I need...making the connection (or running to the front brake cable stop) at the stem first and then cutting to length at the bullhorns...then installing the brake levers and finally running the cables themselves.

Where are people finding is the best place to put the Di2 junction box? Strapped to the stem? In the bento box?

Not sure which version SC you are on (sorry if I missed it), but I am on the gen 1, 2011 SC9. I ended up getting a Glen Alden (Alden Designs) cable cover, to replace the original grommet cover, which I slip the junction box into. Here is a pic of his, but i don't know if he is still offering them or not:

Does anyone know of a low profile 1 inch steerer dust cover that would fit on a 7 series speed concept? I'm trying to run a cable stop on my steerer, but when I set it above the original dust cover it raises my bars a bit too much. I would just set it on the very bottom, but it's a 1 1/8 inch cable stop so I need to shim it to fit and when I do it doesn't depress the bearings properly and allows for a little play in the steering. I haven't been able to find a 1 inch steerer cable stop either because none I've seen will fit over the little bump out in the head tube.

The simple answer here is to run cable to a fork mounted or brake mounted stop, but that wouldn't look quite as pro...

I know this has been discussed before, but I still cannt find a definitive answer.

I'm looking to put one bottle on either the down tube, or seat tube for concentrate. Which aero bottle out there are you all liking and which position is best (down or seat tube). I think I have read somewhere that the bontrager bottle on the seat tube was the "fastest" but that was on a medium frame and not nesessaraly the best position for the large frame, which is what I have. This is for the Gen 2 SC.

I would look at the Elite Crono CX aero bottle and run it on the downtube.

cage mount provisions are in exactly the same place...tube shapes are the same...same answer would apply to both sizes.

Thanks Carl! So bontrager aero bottle is best way to go on the seat tube?

pretty much any aero bottle. not to say there aren't (small) differences, but as a rule, aero bottle should go on the seat tube for the SC.

I tried search but maybe my searching ability is lacking. What is the bolt size for the SC Gen 2 seatpost clamp?

PSA - the newest Zipp hub used on the NSW wheels rubs the inside if the fork legs very lightly on the 9 series. The tolerance seems to be about the thickness of the paint because after a few miles the rubbing was gone and so was a narrow line of paint on the inside of the fork leg.

Hi Carl - I have a gen 1 SC 9.5. I have the elbow pads setup as wide as they will go with the aerobars to the inside. Is there a longer extension for the elbow pads, or is my only option to move the pads out wider to flip the aerobars to the outside position and then adjust the pad width using that wider base position? I'm guessing that is the only option.


Thanks!

That's the option.

Is there a stem that's longer than one of the "far" ones? I've got a "mid-far" on my new bike and still need a few centimeters of length on the bar ends. I've already go on there the longer monobar, unless there's a trick to move that more forward than what I'm seeing. I can post pics if it helps.

Thanks ahead of time for your help. The bike is BEAUTIFUL!

The far stems are as far as we go.

If you're already running a long mono and still need more reach, my next suggestion is to look into the "plug'n'play" mono (PN 438481) where you can throw whatever extensions you want in there.


for example: the carbon ergo extensions (OE on the original SC 9-series) at min-insert in a plug'n'play would put the shifters 12.5cm further out than you can get on the current long-ergo mono. you're only looking for a few cm, so you just slide them back to where you need them.

I've attached an example pic (with a lot of excess extension cut off)

Thanks! Are the two monobar attachment bolts able to move fore and aft, or are they fixed in place? I keep wanting to loosen them and slide them forward, but it doesn't seem possible.

they can be loosened which allows you to move the mono back and forth. it helps to back out the setscrew in the the tilt cradle a couple turns too. that same setscrew limits the forward range (i.e. you'll never get the mono to slide all the way forward in the slot...that setscrew will always be visible).
