Hi , great build !
Don't suppose you have a link or details of the eBay carbon headset spacer or cheaper versions of the top cap expander you used ?

Do a search on eBay for conical spacer and you should find it.

The top cap is from Tune. Not expensive at all.

This is a fantastic build. One of the lightest CAAD 10s I've seen.

Went back to drool at your bike, and didn't realize you asked me this…lol

Anyways, I am good. Wounds and bruises are practically gone. My CAAD is great, aside from scuffed shifter. Wheels are kinda fudged, so I'm on the 404s for now (which i can't really complain about 8) )

How are you replacing the parts (which looked super new) to cut down on the weight like that!! And how's the Recon cassette coming along?
Great digits for the bike to hit on the scale by the way, I enjoyed the thread!

Damn, glad you're ok. 404s are sweet. Any new upgrades coming?

The cassette is doing great. No issues or wear yet.

Sweet build. I'm building up a Caad10 at the moment. How are the components holding up?

Might borrow a few tweaks on your build for mine. 8)

Congrats on the amazing build.

I'm looking into getting myself a Saevid saddle also.

Can you post your thoughts on it, please?

Cheers!

I love the Saevid saddle. It's the most comfortable saddle that I've used. It's really well made, and super light. I don't feel any discomfort for the first 40-50 miles. I do recommend it, but saddles are different for everyone. Give it a try.
