The last few months I was busy upgrading my Magnesium White CAAD10 Ultegra.

This is the upgrade list so far:

Campagnolo Shamal™ Ultra™ 2012 Wheels
Ritchey WCS Carbon Matrix 4-AXIS UD Stem
Sella Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow Saddle
C-Bear Ceramic Bearings (after the original Bottom Bracket was broken within 1 year -> thanks Cannondale !).
2 x Cannondale Carbon Cage EVO
2 x Schwalbe Ultremo ZX

Next on the (wish)list is a Ritchey WCS Superlogic evolution carbon bar to replace the heavy Cannondale C3 Bar (would save more than 100 grams).

The Weight came down significantly, but I want to push it further. So, my question is to you guys: what do you recommend ?

(yes, forget the saddle bag in the picture ;-) ).

Here are some that worked great on my build and aren't too pricy

Thomson masterpiece seatpost. 142gr
SRAM red cassette 166gr
Kcnc skewers 45gr
Tune topcap and extralite expander (should save you 30plus grams)
Conti supersonic tubes - saves 40gr each over conventional tubes.

Exactly. Not only eye candy but functional too.

look around for a used sisl. I got one for $340, albeit it had some wear but still. Its an awesome crank, super stiff and light.

Shamal Ultra on a Cannondale, is straight-up sexy. If you want BAMF....you need the Hollowgram Si or SiSL crankset:

The last year I have been busy lowering the weight of my CAAD10.

I upgraded to the following parts:
Campagnolo Shamal Ultra 2012 Wheels (1425 grams)
Ritchey Superlogic II handlebar with 3T Pro Tape (188 + 61 grams)
Ritchey WCS Carbon Matrix 4-AXIS UD Stem (121 grams)
Sella Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow (115 grams)
two Cannondale Carbon Cages (40 grams total)
Dura-Ace 7901 chain (252 grams)
Dura Ace 7900 pedals (248 grams)
KCNC Chainring bolts (10 grams)
Ultremo ZX tires



What parts would you recommend to save more weight on the CAAD10 - and then especially looking at a USD/gram basis ? (yes and forget about the pump and the saddle bag in the picture ;-) ).

Thanks !

looks at some of the builds in the into section - it will give you lots of ideas.

what crankset do you have? might start there. also consider the seatpost, brakes, cassette.

Change the crankset, it's heavy. Then group for a Force or Dura-ace for example. Can save weight everywhere but don't start with handlebar and stem that is pretty light.

Then it depends on your goal. A low profile tubular wheelset would save some weight to and be a nice upgrade

loose the saddle bag, put the CO2 and the tube in your jersey pocket. A good 200grams savings! :-)

Thomson Masterpiece
Lighter brakes
Shallow profile tubular wheels
Expander plug/top cap system
Gruppo
Crankset

That's where I'd look to shave weight on that steed...

Thanks !

By the way I did upgrade the topcap to a much lighter one.

The question for me what the most cost effective way is to reduce more weight (i.e. in terms of USD per gram).

The crankset I gave a thought of course, thinking about Dura Ace 7900 one, but in terms of weight reduction costs, it is like USD 2 per gram - which is not really tempting ...
