    Ask a Cervelo dealer. The Di2 grommets should be good enough.

    Now that Cervelo has eTap bikes (S3 disc), try asking them.

    Sugru indeed. Apart cables holes I also covered unused bottle cages inserts. The good thing about sugru is when set it's like a rubber. You can unplug whatever you covered and reuse it.

    Is there any chance that this product will react negatively with the paint finish? Would hate to put on this mouldable "glue" and then have the top tube get ruined by this. The web site says to remove it, you need to scrape off part of it with a knife...

    Haven't noticed anything worrying. It doesn't go into any reaction with the paint, at least according to my eyes :)

    What cranks are you fitting? I've just bought a near new 2016 S3 frameset and wanted to swap the eTap off my R3 onto it. Running the RED GXP cranks on the R3, and am trying to ascertain how easy (or not) it is to fit these onto the S3

    Re: SRAM red etap blanking grommets s3

    If the cranks are bb30 they won't fit!!!,you can fit gxp cranks with adaptors but I run rotor cranks.i have it all working good but the low stop is wound all the way out.i think the issues lie with aero fame and how close it is ...basically the chain line but I got it to work ok,I do believe if the crank was spaced out 1mm it would allow for a larger range of adjustment,I will try it long term and may swap to sram if it gives me hassle .

    Yeah, I've got the GXP crankset. Think Wheels Mfg and Enduro both do the appropriate adaptor. This gives a pretty good run down of what's involved: http://blog.artscyclery.com/ask-a-mechanic/ask-a-mechanic-adapting-sram-gxp-to-pf30-bb30-bbright/

    I'm still getting the chain drop on the top of the teeth on the small front if I'm not far enough up rear cassete,sram recommend 25 mm from bike centreline to bolt center on front mech.i think this is down to frame design .i will be intrested to see how you get on with red crank.thought of spacing crank out 1mm as this will give the mech more inward throw.

    Re: SRAM red etap blanking grommets s3

    OK, have been running this set up for about 12 months now. No issues. I've got SRAM Red GXP 52/36 cranks with a BBInfinite BB setup. Was easy enough to fit myself (although getting the old PF BB out was a bit unattractive without the right tools) I do notice I get a bit of chain rub on the large chainring when I'm in my 36 (front) and 11 (rear) - so cross-chaining it full throttle. The rub is not on the FD cage, but actually on the large chainring, so nothing I can adjust out. But I don't cross-chain it normally, so not fussed about that Cheers, Mike
