After months of searching/researching I finally decided on a CAAD 10 frame! This will be my first actual road bike, I've had plenty of mountain bikes and a cross bike but never an actual road bike, so I'm pretty excited to say the least! I'm still waiting on the stem, wheels, and bottle cages, but it should be done by the end of next week.

Build list:
Cannondale CAAD 10 BBQ
3T Pro cockpit (Not exactly light, but it matches so well!)
FarSports 38mm Carbon Clincher
Michelin Pro 4
Shimano Dura Ace 7900
KMC X10SL
Cannondale Hollowgram Cranks
Fizik Airone CX
Fizik Tape
Yokozuna cables
Mavic Race SL Ti pedals

EDIT: Finally, finished it! After six months of waiting, planning, and saving I've finally got it all assembled! And I have to say, I am very pleased with it! It still needs some minor adjustments, but for the most part it's set.
Also, please excuse the mediocre bar wrapping! I've only ever done it once before, and believe it or not, this was way better than my last attempt! I also managed to mess up the cable routing a tad while wrapping the bars, so I may go and redo it tonight.

Anyways, here's some iphone shots. I'll get some better ones soon(with it in the big ring, and the cranks in the right position!).

I have the same frame as my winter bike. Not built too light, but really like it. One thing that I bought which was made for it is the black arione with the white stripe (which matches the top tube) - will post up a photo (once I have worked out how!).

Looks great!

I am really digging those pedals. The chrome like finish really pops.

Looks good. Have you thought about maybe sanding the decals off the stem?

Can't say it's ever crossed my mind, but now that you mention it, that may be pretty cool! I'll definitely give it some thought!

Don't sand them. They will wipe right off with acetone.
