Cannondale SuperSix EVO Nano Black Inc. 5.57kg/12.28lbs
I picked up the 2015 frameset/crankset package half price in the January 2016 sales and this has now been ridden for two seasons racing, TT’s, hill climbs, trips abroad to Ventoux and Majorca, club runs, long solo days in the saddle, and everything else in between. Finally settled on a build I’m happy with after a while changing a few things. Thought I’d put the bike up on here and introduce myself since acquiring a nearly sub-1kg wheelset which has helped push the weight well below 6kg, I also have a lighter freehub body with ceramicspeed bearings to fit which should push the wheels sub-1,000g.
This is not a serious weight weenie build and while all components are relatively high end/lightweight all finishing kit, both sets of wheels & groupset has been carefully purchased nearly new second hand on eBay to save money. I have also made no concessions on safety or durability and this bike is meant to be ridden hard without unnecessary maintenance or faff. Just after getting my 3rd cat license last year I got caught up in a high speed crash leading into the sprint and despite going over the handlebars with 5 other riders and sliding across the road the bike was thankfully unscathed. I have since built up a Canyon Ultimate for crits and wet weather races (6.8kg).
I’ve listed the build with my new tubular hillclimb wheelset, but have also listed the weight with my everyday wheelset of Zipp 303/404 combo on Tune hubs.Frame:

Apologies for the rubbish photos, I'll take some decent ones at some point and update this post. I'd be interested to hear what people think, and whether anyone has any recommendations on components to help make this any lighter while still remaining affordable and practical (I weigh 73kg).
