Hi My name is Chris, Im from the Gold Coast in Australia.

I've been in the background here a while but thought it may be good to say hi.

I have just built up my new ride.

Its a 56cm 2011 CAAD10 Frameset, with basically a full SuperSix Hi Mod Dura Ace parts swap.

So thats a Dura Ace 7900 Brake Set, Rear Derailer, STI Levers, Chain, Casette, FSA K Force Bars, FSA OS99 Stem, FIZIK Arone, SL Hollowgram Crankset and BB but with the FSA rings, and the Mavic Kysrium SL Black Wheelset and a Ultegra Front Derailer??? TIME RXS Carbon pedals, Ultremo ZX Tyres, Factory CAAD10 seatpost is it a C2? and a ELITE cage. All up I weighed it in at 7.3kg

I have to admit I was kinda hoping to get a sub 7kg bike, so any suggestions to help would be grateful. I can get hold of a SRAM Red groupset that is an option if its much lighter but didnt think there would be much difference????

Anyway this bike rides real nice, I had my first ride this arvo and am loving it so far.

Very nice bike. I've got a CAAD9 myself and it's one of the best bikes I've ever ridden.

In terms of loosing that 300g, lightweight tubes eg. (maxxis flyweight 56g, bontrager RXL 70g) will loose a fair amount of weight in comparison to your standard conti's @ 125g. The bontragers are still good enough for day to day use.

Other than that, seatpost may lose you a bit of weight.

Already working on the new chainrings, I'm trying to track the cannondale mk 5 rings down, maxxis tubes going in today, and going to do the numbers on the sram red while in the shop this arvo. Seat post for sure when I work out what one.

Brakes and race wheels would get you down to 6.8 kg.

Personally, I'd go with latex tubes for the nicer ride and suffer a minor weight penalty over butyl, but that's me.

Other suggestions that aren't too expensive:
skewers, replace the expander plug with an Extralight Ultrastar,

Welcome to the forum. :welcome: Look at the rotating parts first. Look at the listings for lighter wheel and the options since these have the biggest impact besides weight!

Yes I am wired that way aswell, rotating weight is definatly higher on the priority list, But wheels are so damn expensive to get under what these weigh as it is. Unfortunatly I do have limited funds LOL

I have some Ultremo R.1 that I thought were 180g yet the Ulltremo ZX on the bike now weighed in today at 220g. Are the R.1 lighter then the ZX??

Today I got some Maxxis tubes weighed in at 53g each the tubes coming out weighed 107g each so that saved me best part of a 100g, but problem was I fitted my garmin speed and cadence sensor LOL, I also grabbed a carbon cage that was 18g while the Elite was 47g (I do like the look of the Elite better though :roll: ) so all in all by end of trade today I managed to do a few things between customers and get down to 7.22kg

The supersix that donated the parts is meant to have the compact MK 5 chain rings so they should be here Tuesday......... :D and I would imagine be lighter then the FSA 53,39 and Im thinking I'll match them up with a 11-21 casette again should be lighter then the 12-25 on there now.

I cant decide on a seat post, not because I cant find a light one, but because Id like to have the bar, stem and post match up and while Im happy with the bar and stem The K Force post isnt exactly light. Any suggestions on a good three pack LOL I am only 68kg by the way so pretty much any thing "light" should be fine.

What is the general thoughts on good skewers, and not just light but ones that are light and can still generate a decent clamping force.

Thanks for any help you guys can offer me.

Chris

Get a set of Soul C4.0 (38mm Carbon Clinchers 1.39kg) look awesome, roll well and quiet light that would bring down the weight a bit :)

bike looks awesome btw, welcome fellow aussie :)

If you are on a budget there are some great options in my opinion for lightweight wheels.

You can do the china direct wheels for under $600... I have some from yishun and thus far no complaints.

There are also some guys on here who build some pretty lightweight wheels too...

did you get a chance to weigh the frameset? I'm thinking about buying a 2012 version when they come out.

Fitted up my Schwalbe Ultremo R.1 today and weighed in at 7.18k, have also ordered a USE Alien Cyclops Carbon seat post, I originally wanted to match the post to the bars and stem, but realised that the Cannondale EVO Ultimate has the USE post and the FSA OS99 stem aswell, so thought if its good enough for the EVO its good enough for me :) MK IV Rings still coming aswell. Also trying to find the TUNE skewers, right or wrong or just plain different, I thought it made sense to fit them to my bike since there OEM on the EVO Ultimate. So Im guessing a 100g saving with the post and skewers and maybe another 50g with the MK IV rings. Its going to be close to 7.00kg I think.
