Hi guys. I finally have something to post on Weightweenies. Previously I ordered a Chinese open mould FM066 SL but I have yet to see anything come out of it. In the mean time, I used the components planned for that build and picked up a unique CAAD10 frameset from my work place.

I did not attempt to actually weightweenie the bike, as I decided to just turn these parts into a crit build. As she is right now, she weighs 15.3 lbs. Not bad. I can actually go under 15 just by cutting the excessive seatpost (I grabbed the longest length one from work, because that was all that was available for 27.2), carbon cages, and ti spindles for the speedplays.

As for the FM066 SL frame that might come, I may turn it into a di2 build and try to get <14 with a partial Ultegra Di2 group.

Build list and some more pictures to come.

I'm biased but that paint job looks incredible ! Is it a 'repaint' or is a one off from cannondale ? The whole bike looks awesome ! :mrgreen:

Can you custom paint your CAAD 10 without voiding the warranty?

I don't live near InCycle, are there other dealers who do this?

Basically I'd love a 2013 CAAD 10, but I don't like the graphics. So this would solve my problem.

It's factory painted by Cannondale. I believe we get custom paint for our frames for being the #1 cannondale dealer for mountain bikes.

The paint has a very nice finish in person, and I love the fact that this paint scheme is very exclusive. I didnt want just a regular CAAD10 so this fits the bill.

Build list when I have access to a computer, as I am on my phone

You see the Incycle versions pop up on eBay occasionally......ok, sometimes. I would jump on one my size in that colorway.

Nice! I concur with Zitter. I saw these CAAD10s raced on by Cory Williams. Really nice paint!

Nice CAAD10. Love the custom color. I really want to get frame and do my own custom pain job (thinking GULF racing colours). Currently looking for an old CAAD 4 - 8 to do up.

Who needs a high priced boutique frame when you can get a CAAD that changes color! :thumbup:
