Here is my latest build project.

Cannondale Scalpel 3 Carbon – 2012 model in large (bought new a few weeks ago).

Changes to standard spec as follows:-

Wheels
• Stans Crest 650b rims with Slick Graphics custom rim decals in ‘Cannondale Green’
• Pillar DB aero spokes with red anodised nipples
• Soul Kozak lefty front hub
• Novatec rear hub
• Schwalbe Thunderburt TL-ready EVO 2.10” tyres
• Stans tape and fluid

Transmission
• XT Shadow+ medium clutch rear mech
• Oneup 40t cassette adapter (green) with 16t sprocket
• Token 11t (green) cassette lockring
• Works Components 32t SRAM BB30 Spiderless thick/thin chainring
• Delete front chainrings, front shifter and front mech

Brakes
• Quaxar Axim Ultralight floating rotors (160mm) in green

Contact points
• USE Atom carbon riser bars
• ESI grips (green)
• USE Sumo carbon seatpin
• Crank Bros Eggbeater pedals

All in, I have removed 1,300g of weight from the standard bike which ‘should’ weigh in at just under 23lbs. This should bring me pretty much bang on 20lbs (I haven’t got it on the scales yet). I could quite easily shave another 500g from the bike with lighter bars, seatpin, saddle, cassette, cranks, brakes etc, but as I weigh 92kgs and am now feeling quite poor, I’m reluctant to go too far in this respect. I might however upgrade the shifter to a new XT affair as it has the nifty double shift functionality which I have quite valuable when running a single ring on the front.

With the 650b wheels and Thunder Burt tyres, the thing absolutely flies. The Thunder Burts give a decent amount of clearance on the seatstays which is the limiting factor when fitting 650b wheels to the Scalpel.

As a partner for my All Mountain spec Yeti SB-66, it works great. I now have all the bike I need, plus more.
