Great build! Impressive how quickly you got it all together (well, except for the wheels). What rims are you going with for the ultralight wheel build?

Great inspiration for my SS EVO HM winter build, also a 58cm and going for budget weenie. I'm considering paying a local company to strip and clearcoat my '13 frameset...but I'd probably try to source some black Cannondale decals to go on it - something like what the older Black Inc got, just a head badge and top-tube. I won't get to your level - maybe sub-12lb. depending on wheels. I'll get an intro post up soon.

Sounds like a good project. I still haven't figured out what I am going to do for graphics yet, but it won't stay completely nude forever.

How many links in the chain at 222g, was looking at changing to KMC and wondered how many grams I could save. !!! Cheers.
Thanks! I believe I counted 117 links, hopefully that is correct.

So currently installed:
