Hey,

I've been reading on this forum for quite a while now. so i might aswell share my bike with you. :D
My priority isn't really the weight but making it competition ready.I'd rather have a solid bike then a breakdown.

Parts:
Ultegra 6700 grey
Cannondale Caad 10 (bought in 2010 but is a 2011 model)
Standard Cannondale Bars, stem and seatpost.
Proloq seat
BB30 bracked
FSA SL-K (carbon w/clear coat)
Wheels: Mavic reflex w/ dura-ace hub, FFWD f6r, maybe a new pair of tubulars.

Hoping to finish it this saturday. Mostly posting phone pictures but will get some better photo's when it's done.

Thanks! They are FSA SL-K ones, as stated above. They had white/red decals on them but i had them removed at the paint shop. Buying new one's is around 300 euro and getting the decals back on would also cost a boatload as they didn't do that before. Really happy with the result!

It's main purpose is criteriums (~65km) and also classic's (~130km). Some results of previous years if you are interested: http://www.cyclingdatabase.com/rider/allard-klijnstra/13062

Update: new wheels
Was able to purchase a new pair of wheels: Reynolds 32 mm, 1100 gram, planet x skewers, tune mag rear hub and a reynolds 240s front hub.
Edit: No idea what skewers they are.

They seem very light to me.
Tubes seem to be glued really bad

Wow, that colour looks really good! And the simplicty is striking as well. So much better than the original paintschemes from any past or present model year CAAD10.

And not many colours go well with the Ultegra grey, but this blue does! I think it would look great with the 6800 group too, especially with the 6800 crank.

Finished building it today in Emmen. @ http://www.bikes4you.nl

Turned out great and the wheels i bought seemed very solid to them.

Image
Finished with Reynolds wheels and retro vitoria's. Seat is from my fixed gear,i will swap it out for an proloq before the season.
Crank is clearly my favorite part of the bike, the gears have such an nice look tho them.

Image
With my retro wheels when we where building it. :D

Will hopefully get some better shots soon (with a nikon)

Good looking bike.
could you post some more shots of the crank? I was thinking of stripping mine as well and just wanted a closer look!
thanks in advance!

Looks very nice. Like the bleu. Mooie fiets. Espacially if the seat gets swapped. I noticed that you de logod the crank, seatpost and bar. Is the stem also gonna bee de logod? I must agree that this bike deserve some better pictures, but thats comming. Who has done the paint job?
i like the looks of the stripped slk crank mine is being stripped wright now to.
Everything is all right in the end, so if everything is not allright it's not the end
