    Compression Plug

    Hi guys, need some advice.
    Can I use compression plugs from other manufacturer or should I use the original FSA SI ones that comes with CAAD10?

    I have the Tune carbon compression plug on my bike for weight weenie purposes 16 grams. Love it. No issues. It is a little tricky to make sure everything seats properly. 18g savings over stock (34g). Its not huge but it all adds up. That being said the Cannondale supplied ones work great and are easy to use.

    Cannondale has a new, lighter compression plug assembly for 2013. 12 grams total! Don't have the part number yet though.

    a comparison of the new vs. the old. my scale shows 2 grams heavier than dan's but you get the point. such a big weight savings in such a small piece.

    I would get the new plug and avoid the Tune as it can be more hassle for some setups/people. The new Cannondale one is nice and so easy to setup.

    If your local shop can't get it then try this place.
    They are very good about stocking the newest gear a soon as it becomes available.

    the only place i've seen them is on the evo red racing and up. they are using the older design on the lower models but i agree with metoou2 about cannondale experts. they always have the newest stuff as soon as it's available

    I got a reply from Cannondale Experts this morning. They have them on order, but don't have a delivery date from Cannondale yet. They will have them up on their site as soon as they receive them.

    Considering some guys spend $300 to save 50g with handlebars it's a bargain. Plus it looks awesome with it recessed.

    By the way why is the new KP017 plug so much more expensive than the old one?
    The previous KP017 only costs 9 euro at Top cap 23,5 new - Dr. Cannondale
