According to THIS it is just the 2016 and 2017 Si arms that they can't mount to. I'd love to know why though.
This bike is looking to be what I wanted in mine. I wanted a black frame but couldn't find it one in my shop. In the process of going full 9100 too.
Eagerly watching this build



You know I'm not quite sure, but they did send me this pdf and asked me to take some pictures with a AAA battery in between the crank arm and the frame. Here is the pdf.

Yes they do add up quick! What is your spreadsheet showing for an estimated final weight? I'm very confident my CAAD12 will be at or below 6.8kg but getting to the next milestone of 6.3kg will take a miracle and way too much $$!

So here is the spreadsheet but I'm missing a few things still. (Forgive me as this is my first time) not sure what cables will weigh. Nevertheless,

I am glad to see the Slam That Stem cover. The stupid stock cone-shaped bearing covers drive me crazy.

... What about ergonomy? :)


Oh for sure. I was definitely projecting my flexibility and desire to look P-R-O on Cannondale's desire to sell a bike that is comfortable to their target demographic :wink:

No worries! Hope they work lol!

So bit of a dilemma. I was given some giant propel slr bars by my bro. He upgraded to some Aero 3T stuff.....

I think I can make it work.....

But..... it's no weight weenie.

I'm going to assume I can trust it since it's made by Giant. Do I sand it paint and run with it? Or upgrade?

I say save the pennies and run the bars.. 210 grams is respectable and that difference will be made up with the fork and Seat post trimmed!

Also looks like your knocking on the 6.8kg door! A good reference for the cable weights and other odd bits can be noticed in the below awesome thead...

On a side note, it looks like my cranks and shifters will be here tomorrow so I might start putting together mine this weekend :)

Oh man! Great great thread! Thank you!

Congrats on your parts coming in! I don't think I've been as excited about a bike, there is something to be said about putting a bike together ground up.

I don't think I would ever buy another "off the shelf" bike for the fact of just seeing it all come together piece by piece with parts you choose.

I vote to use the free bars too. My stock bars were 325g, my new ones are 240g. You probably won't get much lighter than 210g without going cheap knock off, or $250+.
I replied to your other post with pics about the 4iiii
