Hi, just bought one of these frames to build up for next year. Could you help me out and tell me what the cable outers stop up against when they run through the cap in the top-tube?
Yup, got the hardware that came with the bike; top tube caps, noodles and other bits for the brakes
Had some issues with my Oval wheels so i plan on using my flo's now. Might just be me since im not bike savvy in the brake dept but it doesnt look like these TRP brakes open up too much to fit a flo wheel. again, i know it's probably me but i was turning the knobs near the brake lever and underneath the bike near the brakes wondering which one would open up the brakes.
Do you have an inline barrel adjuster on your brake lines? If you don't I'd recommend adding some or getting brake levers that allow you to adjust the distance between the pads and the rim. I'm using the Bontrager xXx ones and they have built in adjusters. TRP makes some as well.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.

One of the ways they get some of the advertised range of fit is that the arm rests clip to the extensions (so you can slide them to where ever you want to adjust reach). I'm 185 and they just didn't work for me -- I couldn't get them tight enough to stay at the level I set them (and it sucks to hit a bump and have the arm rests drop).
I bought the Zipp alumina clip armrests and used them with the Oval extensions that came with the bike. The Zipps are really comfortable and far better, and they were a quick/cheap solution. Eventually, I upgraded the entire bar to a nicer base bar (with better cable routing, also), but the Zipps were a fine solution that I could have kept using in terms of functionality.
Just waiting for TriRig to release the Sigma X and my front end will be finished. Cable routing for me is pretty simple since going to a 1x11 drivetrain.
