Starting a new build. Sold the Fuji w/DA 9k and went "cheap".

Starting with a 56cm 2013 CAAD10 4 w/Rival that I got on end-of-season clearance. Going to sell the group, crankset (FSA Energy and SRAM S951 standard cranks) and wheels (Fulcrum Racing 7) if anyone is interested.

I bought Force 22 group, Hollowgram SL cranks and will be using both wheelsets from my previous build.

mind posting a weight of the force crank if you have it?
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

I actually think the Force 22 is the pick of the litter for Sram now. Clean lines :thumbup:

I certainly will when it comes in. Should be here by the weekend.

@ulty - I agree. Thought about Red, but liked the more understated looks of the Force kit. Also, it is going to match the frames coloring perfectly.

Weight is 16 pounds as it sits today. Should lose about 250 grams with the crank upgrade.
