My plan is to upcycle to eTAP on my 2013 CAAD10.
Someone has already fitted the FD eTAP on a CAAD without any issues and it seems I can still use my Praxis Zayante chainset (10speed) successfully with 11 speed components.

Ive already replaced my sold FFWD F6R tubular wheels for a new set from the FWWD outlet shop for not much more money than I sold the others for.

Other question do I go for the expensive SRAM cassette or the half of its price Dura ACe?

    Expensive 105 already deployed. Glitter to hide the scratches.

    on the new wheels, is the freehub body aluminium? if so, sram cassette

    shimano cassettes can chew up an al fhb (unless it has steel inserts/similar protection)

    Yes , alu. saving up for the 1190

    Get SRAM 1170, cheaper, just as good and probably more durable than 1190.

    But where from?
  • pinnopinno Posts: 50,547

    Harry could not have been more helpful and he is a gent to deal with, he sent me samples within minutes of me mailing him , made all the colour changes ,font changes , size changes etc etc. The decals were sent out immediately and they look the dogs nuts, totally pro looking vinyl products.........and the price, well I was more than happy to pay the required £12.98 posted.

    have used 1170 and 1190 cassettes. 1170 is better in terms of lasting. a few grams doesn't really make a difference at my level.

    Things might change, have to pay for the wheels yet
