Are these Enve 3.4 disc?
If yes why do you prefer these over the Enve 5.6 disc?

Newbie here; I've enjoyed trawling my way through this thread and do like the look of the fluoro caad12 above (amongst all the others).

Thought I'd share my 52mm caad9 that I've owned for about 9 years now and recently given a makeover with new ultegra gruppo, ksyrium sl wheelset and enve 2 fork (the old ultra was flaking paint and was a little structurally concerning).

Image

Other notable changes are Thompson stem and seatpost, and SI saddle. Continental GP4 tyres - 25mm. DA pedals.

Rides like a dream.

7.5kg. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for further weight saving. Possible areas are; stock bb, headset, and FSA aluminium bars?

Thanks for looking.

Keep up the awesome CAAD builds!

Ahh yeah lets have some CAAD9 love 8) Nice build there calv1n

Image

Mine was around 7kg as pictured, she went down to 6.7 with my tubular 303s. My old build thread with detailed weights is here - might give you some ideas where you can save some weight . She went through several upgrades / rebuilds over the years

the 2018 caad12 disc with ultegra spec and higher come with a 12x100 TA flat mount fork. i believe it's the same as the supersix evo disc fork. regardless, the answer is yes, there is one available.

thank you. probably going to be easier to go aftermarket then finding a fork for sale. Shame cannondale doesn't sell forks individually.
