How many times did you measure before cutting the second fork? :mrgreen:

Last time I cut a fork I didn't take into account the width of the saw blade. So I ended up with a fork that was 1mm shorter then I had wished for. But seeing how much extra you cut off, I kind of feel better now :mrgreen: Just kidding :wink:

Hahah, I must have measured 10 times, and I did account for the saw blade. Probably the most stressful part of a build.

I cut the seat post down and it's now only 88g. Total weight of the bike now is 6.2kg. I'm aiming to get it under 6kg. Next I'm getting lighter tires and going with latex tubes. Should drop 60g right there.

Hey drainyoo, very nice bike!! My Caad10 was stolen early this year and while looking at your bike, a single tear ran down my cheek...

How has the ride been so far? More specifically how does the cockpit feel so far with the super light stem? Confident/Nervous/Stiff(enough)/Flexy etc.
And how has the supersonics been treating you in terms of flats?

Really sorry to hear that. Did you get a replacement?

The ride is amazing. The cockpit feels stiff as a rock for me. Never nervous about putting too much force. I also don't experience any flex, at least any that I can feel. It's a great stem.

The Supersonics have held up great, only one flat. I am very conscience of the roads, so I avoid any debris. I'm actually thinking of going with the GP Supersonic tires with latex tubes. That should cut 100g on the wheels and improve rolling resistant.

Overall, love the CAAD10.

Thanks!

It really is a great frameset. For the price, weight and performance, I don't think you can do better.
