I am building myself a climbing/training bike (n+1) to complement my other bike, which is a Giant Propel.

I picked up a new old stock 2013 CAAD10 frame in the black/silver finish very cheaply on eBay. It had no fork so I found a new, uncut Super Six fork on eBay to pair with it for a reasonable price. It’s in the Liquigas colour way but I plan on doing my own paint at some stage anyway.

Frame didn’t include a seat clamp, cable guide or headset so I will source these through Cannondalespares, and swap out the bolt for Ti, though I’ll probably run an FSA Orbit headset as I don’t want the giant spacer the OEM headset comes with.

Finishing kit will be FSA SL-K (44cm carbon bars, 120mm stem, 27.2mm SB0 seatpost) as I already have them and like the bar shape.

Groupset will be Ultegra 6800 11 speed, as I already have cassette and derailleurs and run Shimano on my other bikes and want to stick with it, plus there are more Stages power meters turning up secondhand and I want a power meter on this bike, as a bonus I could swap it to my other bikes.

I have Ti bolts for most things ready and will try and get all the fasteners on the frame in Ti.

I run a Fizik Tritone TT saddle on my other bike and may try the new Mystica on this or a Fabric Tri Flat.

Wheels are likely going to be hand built. Haven’t thought too much about them yet, except they have to be clinchers as riding on tubs makes me paranoid. Hopefully 1400g or below to be <7.5kg for a relatively inexpensive and durable build.

Any tips or recommendations for a wheel build?

Rough thoughts are Kinlin XR200’s on Hope RS hubs 20/24h with Sapim Laser’s. There are lighter hubs but I want something strong.

Ordered seat post clamp and cable guide from cannondalespares today. Have Ti bolt to go on.

Have settled on an FSA C-33 Orbit headset. Parts will start trickling in.

If you haven't already ordered them get R8000 shifters and brakes. Better ergonomics and power.

I’ll look into it! Thanks.

I’m still looking into options for brakes as Shimano is typically the heavier end of the spectrum in this regard and I’m considering cnc callipers, though to be honest coming from two aero bikes this one has a modest weight target of anything <7.5kg initially. Once I invest in some decent racing wheels that will tumble obviously.

I’m just drafting a build list / spreadsheet to see where I’m at presently and compile actual weights to see where I should focus on.

FSA SL-K SB0 27.2mm seatpost - 222g claimed (looking for Ti bolts as they are rounded where they sit in the head of the seatpost - any ideas?)

Look Keo 2 Max with Rockbros Ti spindles (220g actual)

KCNC Ti skewers - 42g

Ultegra 6800 FD braze-on - 86g

Ultegra 6800 RD short cage - 193g

SL-K stem and bars are on my other bike at present - that will get alloy bars as I’ll be using it for some TT’s and I don’t like clamping on carbon bars

Have ordered the carbon spacers, expander plug and will be ordering the FSA headset and the rest of the Ti bolts this week. Have also found suitable Ti bolts for the seatpost - adapting some meant for a Thomson.
