Last year I rode a Cannondale Caad10 at 5,74kg with Sram Red, used it with Campagnolo Record 2 years ago and missed Campagnolo. Also missed the bit premium feel as I built the Caad10 pretty cheap. So for this year it's not that light, not that special but supposed to be good and first full carbon fibre frame:

Image

Ridley Helium size small with tuned ISP
FSA headset with Extralite Ultrastar and Tune Topcap, POP-Products spacer
Campagnolo Super Record groupset
Campagnolo Chorus 12-25 cassette
Campagnolo Record chain
Rotor 36/50 Q-Rings
Tune Komm-Vor+ saddle
3T Arx Team 100mm stem
Deda Newton Shallow 420 handlebar
Deda Perforated white bartape
FFWD F2R DT190 wheels with Planet X rim front
Vittoria Evo Corsa CX and soon with Vittoria Mastik glue
Tune U20 QR
Arundel Mandible bottle cage
Will change from Time RXS Carbon to Time Xpresso 8 pedals
Total weight: <6,1kg

Sad part is that seen the handlebar at 256g and brakes at 284g made me want to get something lighter instead ;) And also thinking about a more high profile wheelset around 40mm so we'll see were this ends ;)

Great Looking bike, but how often do you use that 25 in your cassette?

Very nice :beerchug: !!!

Is the Planet X rim as good as the FFWD one ? Many claim they're the same rim.

Louis :)

Very cool bike. Forgot how much I like Ridley bikes.

I am running Fredrik Willems' Lotto-Belisol bike from last season. What modifications did you make to the seatmast topper?

+1

only the mis-matching wheels and the single bottle cage detract a little for me.

Changed the bolts for ti and took the adjustment part on the bolt in front of so no big modifications. Would like a seatcombo from Berk instead.

LouisN: Cracked the front rim and as FFWD F2R was 450€ and Planet X around 100 I tried it. Same thing and can't tell any difference at all. Weights the same to, 269-273g somewhere for both.

sawyer: Matching hubs and spokes ;) And got another bottle cage too but don't have 2 mounted when I don't need 2.

Beauty! Why does some part of me feel like this frame needs a straight bladed fork?

Nice bike there Cerro.
I like the way it looks modern and oldschool at the same way. Even the lowprofile wheels looks nice there.

I think that an all black fork would look a bit to clean in that colorful frame.
