A friend gave me this frame on the right time, I had enough pedaling around the city on fixed gear bike. I don't use my car often and most of my life I commute by bike. I love it now when I can change some gears during the ride and the weight issue, my fixed bike was chromo 13.5 kg bike, this one is only 7 kg..

The spec:

Frame: 2008 CAAD 8 54
Fork: Cannondale Premium full carbon
Stem: FSA OS115 size 110
Bar: Ritche WSC aluminum
Shift: Shimano XT 10s
Brake lev: Shimano V-Brake (think it's Acera)
Brakes: Ciamillo titanium
Front wheel: old Dura Ace 7801
Rear wheel: Bont' X-light
Rear Der: Shimano 105
Crank: Dura Ace 7900 with 39 ring
Cog: Dura Ace 12X25
Seat post: ?? carbon
Seat: Fizik

Weight: 7kg

I can shave some weight, dont see why, but I can do that easy

went down to 50cm frame , same stuff just different frame

oh this thing weighs probably 16.5 as shown. not weenie at all with tko bars and other random stuff. 16.5 is probably the lowest i'd wanna go on it. All the components on my sworks sl3 framese (RIP) was about 15.0 , so frame makes up for most of the weight difference.

Here's mine, just outside of Oudenaarde to ride bits of the RVV route. Stayed in the room where Tom Boonen was with Quickstep!

I just finished my new CAAD10 build. It ended up weighing 15 lbs. 6 oz. (6.97Kg) with pedals and the Garmin. I was hoping for something under 15 but the wheels are just too heavy. maybe later I’ll get a set of 202 tubulars. I’ll get some decent pics this weekend.

i think you're talking about mine. by match do you mean brand? if so the seat post and bars are white letter SL-K, the stem was but the stock C3 stem is 20 grams lighter so i put it back on.
