Use carbon paste and 4 nm should be enough. When carbon parts are involved, I don't use more than 4 nm.

on the parktool site is a nice Recommended Tool Lists:

Youtube: use good search words, like "rear derailleur adjustments" or something like that

- When carbon parts are involved always use a Torque Wrench and carbon paste. ALWAYS!!! Never over tighten, read the instructions of the parts. My onw rule, don't use more than 4nm on carbon parts. Use carbon paste between your seatpost and frame, between the (carbon/aluminium) stem and your carbon handle bar. But it's not needed when the stem and handle bare are made of alu.
- Use mounting paste for everything that should be tightened, like BSA bottom brackets, screws of the stem, pedals.
- Use locktide for screws of the rear hangers, brake bolts, disk bolts.
- And use grease on all spinning parts, examples: on the crank axle, on the outside of the bearings (and inside, but most of the time it's already lubricated) to keep water outside, wheel axles. When everything is on his place, remove the excess grease (don't know if I say this right, but the grease what is to much)

Good luck.

I had to Google translate the word "blasphemy".  ;D

When you're getting older and it's hard to keep up your mountainbike-friends, an e-bike is the way to go.
But yes, when you're young and fit, e-bike is a no go.

Oh, Castelli is a real brand?  ;)

Just received my Castelli socks. Very high quality! Shipping was about 10 days. They arrive in an individual packaging that looks really nice. I'm surprised by the quality, glad I grabbed 6 pairs (3 white, 3 black) when price was low (paid 2.8€/pair).

I have some pairs since last summer(the black and white). As you say, perfect.
The color faded away a little, but I still wear them after many km.

Some other I tried didn't last at all.
Really nice socks. Last year I bought the flour yellow version. This week some black pairs arrived.
With this link they are even cheaper :

Registered for an account just for this thread because I have some questions.

Is this the same as the CX028 Miracle frameset? If so, why is this more expensive?

Are the internal routing holes diameter ample enough to fit in hydraulic lines for brakes?

Do you offer custom paint schemes? Looking for a single color other than black with perhaps some stripes or simple design. Whats the price and process?

Is the only way available to place orders through aliexpress?

Yes, it's the same as the CX028. Even the GR029 is the same.
The routing holes are big enough to fit hydraulic lines of course.

Lol...maybe the mods deleting a few of her spam threads helped her along in the "right direction. ;D

bottom bracket bearings(cups), brake pads, mineral oil and tire sealant

Some from China too?
Only the brake pads. Looked for the bb, but not yet convinced, read some bad comments about the screw thread. And I don't want to mess up my bb.

I'm stocking them  :)
When I see a good price, I buy one.

just like hub bearings, bottom bracket bearings(cups), brake pads, mineral oil and tire sealant. And recently I also stocking a chain.
I saved the race of my son last weekend with this stock chain.(he broke his chain in sight of the first round and I could replace the chain (already with correct length) within a minute and he was back on track (25th place) and did a Verstappen and got 3rd.)

Chris, how much warranty do you offer on your frames?

- Is that a chiner seat? How do you like it? I'm curious about longterm durability with those, but interested due to the price, weight, and surprisingly positive reviews in regards to comfort that I've read.

I've definitely wondered the same about that saddle, and I'm curious to hear OP's thoughts.
The saddle is crap. It's cheap and it's crap. Used the same saddle for a couple of month and it didn't hold my weight (82kg) and shown a crack. Bought one for my 8yr old son, and the same problem.

It's better to buy this one, is slightly heavier (15gr), but more durable.;product=126354;menu=1000,4,37

Whow, that's a big step to the last cog.

Which cog did you remove ? And how's the shifting ?

In my setup, I replaced the 15T and 17T with a 16T and added a 42T cog. But the shifting was dramatic. Shifted good for the cogs, 11T - 16T, but then .... or shifted good for 19T and 42T. I guess the 16T had a wrong thickness. Now I'm riding with a Sunrace cassette, 11-42T 10sp.

it seems a few warn to stay away from the NECO headset, but a search shows few riders have no issue for years.
That's nonsense. The NECO headset is a good headset. The best you can get for the money. The CC isn't as twice better than the NECO. When there's water or mud in the headset, the CC is warned out as quick as the NECO.

I've got multiple NECO headset on stock. If one of the  current headsets is warned out, I'll replace it. Once in a year or two. We're all riding NECO (three chiners, three NECO's). And they last at least a year without problem.

However, I have read from a few people who drilled out the entry and exit points in the frame, and removed the inner tubing to be able to run full housing through the frame.
That's what I did on my IP-256SL. Still running smooth after 2,5 years.
