Or you can lose the weight AND get the light bike :).

The top end bikes are never a bargain. Better to go to second-tier and weenie it down. Cheaper and lighter.


I think that the EVO Red is a bargain relatively speaking. ;)

Stoked to see how it comes out, my only criticism is the Zipp 145sl stem. Its a bit of a pig and quite heavy. I'd look into the new SL speed stem. It'll be blingin' and fit the lines of the bike better, I think.

Is the fork from SuperSIX Evo and Caad10 the same? Except the weight then. Could save a lot of weight with a Evofork on my Caad10 :)

I was told by a shop there's a difference between the carbon used in the Evo framesets associated with the different models, and an associated weight difference (other than paint). However, the website has no such indication.

Anyone know?

Funny. Cannondale fessed up to 727g for a 56cm frameset in the article.

evo framesets apparently have the individual frame pieces weighed before final assembly, the lightest ones go together to make the frame for the "ultimate" models, making those frames lighter than the other models. besides that, it's paint,

Slightly off-topic: Nothing broken, except for the wheels. The front Edge 1.24 failed and it was replaced under warranty. Now the rear is suffering the same fate: deformation near the seam opposite the stem hole. Miles on these wheels are very light, I use them for hillclimbs only, but of course that means I need to descend, and the braking may have caused issues. The front one which replaced the original seems better, so I think the originals were bad samples. The seat clamp (KCNC clamp on Thomson post) isn't great: I'd prefer a KCNC post with the KCNC clamp. I actually have that combination with my padded SLR saddle (avoid exposing the Becker to undue trauma) and should probably switch the KCNC over to the Becker and restore the reliable Thomson clamp to the Thomson. Other stuff is fine.

I'm sure Enve'll take care of you. How much do "you" weigh?
It's good to hear that the rest of the bike's held up.
I ask because I want to know what parts I can trust.
I'm over 200lbs, but it's mostly muscle (especially in my legs).
I'll be happy with a 15lb bike that I can beat and hammer without worrying about it.

I feel the same about matching components.
I have a KCNC post on my hit list, but I'm going to try match whatever I get
to as close to OEM in style as possible because it's been flawless for me.
I'm expecting to save about 15g there. The KCNC SC9 is pretty close.
I also like the Soul-Kozak & Woodman too. They both look pretty substantial.

Thanks for the info.

I weighed a 56cm and it came out to 14.13lbs. Running SRAM Red, wheels are Ksyrium Elites, aluminum FSA bars and SL-K post...5500usd retail, compared to a 6600usd Cervelo R5 SRAM Red at 15.5lbs with Fulcrum 7, 3T carbon bars and post.

Fixed :mrgreen:
