I'm really loving your bike!!

Curious though, do you know what the distance is from the center of the BB to the top of your seat? I have pretty short legs and I'm having a hard time finding info from others who are actually short.

so on one side you've got the wheelsmg adapter and on the other the reducer??

killkelvin says:

Yup. I needed to do that so I could deal with the asymmetric bottom bracket. (At the time of purchase, the Wheels Mfg. BB30A adapters didn't work with the exact CAAD12 specs. They've made a CAAD12 specific version since.)

Any reason why the steerer tube wasn't cut to height and spacers are used above the stem?

killkelvin says:

Not really. I feel it's marginally safer to have the carbon steerer go completely through the stem clamp.

... but my warranty is almost gone so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not true unless you have a long ass expander. Actually, it's quite the opposite.

hey man, i'm trying to slam my stem on my caad12. where did you get your top headset bearing cover ? or what is it?

There's a ~1-2mm gap between the cover and the lip of the headtube, though. I guess the CAAD12 has slightly shaved off some of the head tube compared to the CAAD10s and Supersixes.

thanks man! did you had to use the micro spacers for it to minimize the gap?

killkelvin says:

The ones that came with the bearing cover? Nope; they would've made the issue worse.

I just looked up those chainrings, finally ellipticals that are affordable, how are you liking them? More research needed but I may have to try them out, I've been wanting to change my rings for a while

killkelvin says:

They're alright for the price I paid for them. They can flex to the press of my thumb. I don't think they make a huge difference in the way I climb or sprint. Great inexpensive way to try out oval rings, though!

Some special sauce there. Nice chaining! I gotta look that up.

Thanks! I ended up getting the chainrings for $16 on an eBay auction.
