Sharing my CAAD 10 build from the Philippines. Not really a weight weenie rig, but a real solid race machine that isnt afraid to rough it up... Weighed it at around 7.0 kilos +/- . XS frame, for a small guy, 167 cm. height, 60 kilos. 66.5 cm saddle height

Specs :

'11 C'dale CAAD 10 size 48
Sram Force groupset / with rival brakes, 50/34 compact crankset
Prologo scratch nack pro carbon railed saddle
3t rotundo pro h. bars 40 cm.
3t arx team stem - 110 mm (custom painted stripe in white)
amclassic 420 aero wheelset
Kenda kaliente tires
bontrager xxx lite tubes
USE alien carbon seatpost 27.2 mm ( cut to 280 mm)
kcnc ti skewers
prologo bartapes
speedplay zero pedals

* Suggestions, comments, criticisms are absolutely welcome.

Future planned upgrades:
* deep rim wheelset : dream - zipp 303, practical - UnBranded 50 mm wheels.
* brakeset : dream - ciamilo negative gsl, practical - kcnc c7 or token accura/planet x cnc. ( But so far, im happy with how my rival brakes are performing, had zero gravity before and i wasnt really contented with the stopping power.)
* ward ti spindles - probably a must for speedplay pedal users.
* cannondale sisl bb30 crankset - dream upgrade. practical - sram force bb30 crankset

I, too, have a Caad10 but with 105 parts. Would you recommend me upgrading my parts to Sram Force... because I'm incredibly interested in the group. Some people say that it would be best to just sell the Caad10 5 rather than upgrade the parts and keep the frame... what are your opinions?

Hi, not to be biased, but based upon reviews and opinions on this forum, the CAAD 10 frameset itself is a very solid platform as a race bike. Lighter than most carbon frames. So go ahead and upgrade. 8) I am totally happy with mine. Hope this helps.

Shouldn't have a problem with cars or other riders missing you on the road with all the white on the bike. :thumbup:
