C1 Seatpost, C1 Stem, C2 bars. Sub 100g carbon saddle (Aliexpress) and Cinelli Gel bartape.

This must be one of my favourite liveries amongst all road bikes to be honest. Plus this same livery was my first ever proper road bike some 3 yr ago, so a bit sentimental value too lol.

Ran out of ideas how to make it lighter on a budget, so any ideas welcome. :)

Cheerio


I love to see the old USA caad projects. Beautiful bike. Is it bb30?

Thanks!! Yeah you spotted right it is bb30, which means the BB bearings is the only thing on it that I can not do myself :mrgreen:

Looked at a few CAADs in here still a bit shocked how people get them to 6.3-7kg :O

Here is the caad7 R5000 project it's well under 6kg. It's easy to do. My caad 9 is hovering around 6kg with Zipp 404'

Oh my that's some impressive results. Great!
I'll go on to check. What a shame I haven't had any scales available to me when building the bike, so I could weight the individual bits. Make a bit of a hassle now trying to figure out what's the best $/gram saving now. Oh...first world problems lol

Hello hello,
You guys might be able to help me.
I was wondering how tight should I tighten the stem on the carbon steer (Caad10) of my fork ?

The stem (Zipp) says 5nm but that seems a too tight.
Scared I crush the steer !

To all CAAD10 owners - what do you recommend ?

I was thinking about 4nm or is that also too much ?

Cheers !

Folks , Anyone running 28mm on caad12 disc by any chance ?
Is there enough clearance ?

Also has the 2017 changed slightly in the smaller sizes .Mine is a 52cm myself . I've heard a rumour that the seat tube is shorter and the top tube is sloping ?

I was running 25c Conti GP4KS2's which measured around 27mm at 110PSI. There was still enough clearance but not sure if Conti 28's would fit since they're more like 30c's...

Just finished my CAAD12 Dura Ace build and then got hit by a taxi on my commute home, fully totalled the bike, hopefully all covered through the taxi's insurance since the bike owes me around £5,000!

I didn't even have time to take pics of the completed build :(
