Built up my new Cannondale SuperX this weekend. Not with those really light parts as I use a heavy stem and heandlebar but is pretty light anyway:
Image

Spec:
Frameset: Cannondale SuperX size 52
Saddle: Tune Komm-Vor+
Seatpost: Omniracer carbon
Headset: Original but with Tune Top cap and Extralite Ultrastar expander
Stem: Tune Geiles Teil 3
Handlebar: Deda Newton Shallow
Handlebartape: Deda Perforated (so nice)
Shifters: Sram Red, tuned and with yellow hoods
Brakes: Avid Shorty Ultimate with yellow Swissstop
Crankset: Cannondale Hollowgram SL, 39/50 at the moment
Pedals: Time RXS Carbon, later Crank Brothers Candy 2Ti
Rear Derailleur: Sram Red, tuned to 126g
Front Derailleur: Sram Rival (only original part except frameset)
Cassette: Recon alu 11-25
Chain: KMC X10SL, always
Wheels: FFWD F2R DT190
Tires: Challenge Criterium Seta Extra
QR: Tune U20
Wires: Shimano Dura-Ace yellow brakekit, Sram and Shimano Yumeya for gears
Weight: 6,12kg

Frame is 1151g, Fork uncut 533g, Headset with Tune topcap and Extralite Ultrastar 99g,

Had a Caad10 I took most of the parts from. Except stem, handlebar, brakes and small things like wires, bartape and such. Later in the autumn it will get some Challenge Grifo tires instead of Challenge Criterium. So fun rain/winterbike waiting to afford my new roadbike.

Looks great and good weight for a cross bike :-P A higher profil rims would suit it better but that's just my taste :-)

Have a cheap 50/85mm wheelset that I will use with cx tubulars in a while, like a week or so.

Any CX build less than 6,8kg is already impressive!

Changed wheels today and pedals. Will put it on a scale tomorrow.

Mosovich: Waiting for a new seatpost and saddle that works better for CX.

Looks better with the F2R. Btw how do you like the F2R?

Loving the yellow hoods. Nice touch! It makes the bike IMHO.

7,02kg on the scale today. Rode just asphalt and pavé today so 2,5bar in the tires. Huge difference comparing to 7,5bars in my roadtires :) Wanted to train too but my throat doesn't.

gravity: It's a much better pic with the F2R too. Like them a lot except the front rim cracked so have changed it to a Planet X rim instead. Feels faster than my Ambrosio Crono F20 last year but not the best on flat roads. A little to low if it isn't much climbing of just an easy ride.

Thanks for the comment about the hoods. Riding with yellow Mavic shoes, sometimes yellow jersey or yellow socks so nice matching :) And love yellow

For you, a Alu seatpost and a saddle made for mtb instead of road. Tune Starkes Stück and Tune Komm-Vor on the bike:

Your chain appears to be at least 3 or 4 links too short....otherwise a nice build. EM3

I know em3. Took it from my old Caad10 that has shorter chainstays. But don't want to change as it would ruin my Recon alucassette so will ride with this chain as long as the cassette works. And really impressive over how durable the Recon alu cassette is.
