Building up a new CAAD12 that has replaced my old and trusty CAAD8. It went to a good home with a new rider and so onto newer and better things...
I purchased the whole 6800 Ultegra bike. It will be completely torn down and built up with some parts being changed. Obviously will try to get it as light as I can while keeping things durable and dependable for racing. Will probably upgrade things as budget allows. Will ride Ultegra for now as its been a long time since I had a Shimano group. May switch over to Sram Force/Red at some point. The new Ultegra does look and feel nice. Look forward to putting some miles on it. Onto some photos and weights:
Frame weight pictured above has been completely stripped and only includes derailleur hanger and BB bearings which weigh 46 grams (according to prendrefeu and his tare down of a 105 bike)
Frame (black anodized, 54cm) - 1088 grams. Quite impressed here.
Fork (uncut) - 384 grams. About 5cm to be cut.

As of now the wheel choice will probably consist of the new Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL and November Rail 52. I also have a set of hand built H+S wheels that I can use for poor weather/gravel.
More to come...
