If that's a bell in the 4th picture then its impressively stealthy. This is a nice CAAD10 though. What do you plan to do to it?

Thanks, that's the Spurcycle bell. There's not much more to do other than keep riding it :D I'm actually confused why my CAAD weighs much more than other similarly modded CAAD10's. It was never intended to be a super lightweight build but I see the weight of others and I'm blown away.

A good solidly built Caad, congratulations. Would look nicer with a slammed front end but that's not important if that position works best for you. I have a real soft spot for mechanical Dura Ace, I think it's what will find its way onto my Supersix eventually.

Is the 16.1 weight as pictured with bag and bell and everything? My CAAD10 weighs 15.2 with DA9000 and Zipp cockpit and such (and I could go lighter to sub 15 if I change some things).

Very nice. I prefer the ride feel of the Caad10 over that of the EVO by far in terms of every day riding. The EVO is very hard and really is a race specific bike.

Thanks guys!

Riceboy, that's light! What size is your frame? The weight I listed has everything removed except for cages and pedals.

Go whistle, I reckon all the extra weight is in that bell.
Nice saddlebag though.

The bell was added to make my bike 50/50 weight distribution
