Hello guys!

Firstly, sorry for my bad english, I'm french.
I open this topic to tell you the Evolution of my first real roadbike, a 2013 caad10. I expect useful intervention on your part but also advice on how to alleviate or make it more efficient while my machine by paying as little as possible .

I found it on leboncoin for lass than 400Euros on Sram force 10 speed, quickly change for 105 5800 11sp

Now looks like this:

Image

Approximately 7-7.4Kg without pedals. Quite heavy!

And I've also received this new ride for 2018 season, a Ridley Noah size S with Ultegra 6800 (Levers, rear and front mechs) brakes and crank are basics shimano parts.

Here with training wheels:

Here with race wheels Which will change:
Image


Plan for it is to reach the 7kg without spending a lot of money, I think of the R8000 for the crank, and Chinese wheels in 50mm. The goal is to make me happy while remaining reasonable, I like gum walls and slammed stems. I'm waiting your ideas or proposals to help me in my project. It's going to be my bike for the races so I do not want too fragile parts!

-.-' French classifieds are always so cheap, that I cry with tears whenever I browse them. :(

Congratz for the catch! Very nice stuff, I am sure that this bargain only comes as a chance once in a year.

Please, keep us updated with your choices! :thumbup:

Do you like your fit on the bike? If there are things you need to change such as bars, pedals, stem or saddle look for lighter options. Place wanted adds here. If you have a good fit start with your wheels, tires and tubes and work your way down to smaller rotating parts before looking at static parts.

Bay, and placing wanted ads here or even looking over at Slowtwitch are all good sources for used parts.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

CAAD10 is a great aluminium frame , definitely better than some CF frames

You don't need a -17 stem with the amount of spacers under the stem, you rather should remove spacers and use an -6 or -10 stem ... My 2cents

I'd put a small spacer above the stem. Generally recommended for FCF forks.
