Update 6/25/10
Budget $3K, purchased a 2010 CAAD9 5. With a few upgrades up was hoping to get close to 6.8kg, looks like I will be around 6.6kg Here is my build so far. Verified weights are ones without ? in front. Let me know what you think. I have learned a lot from reading this site, thanks. Like limiting my $/gm upgrades to $1/gm for my budget. Awesome advise. Thanks.

Pictures to come later

Wheelset (Front): Rolf Elan front - 530g
Wheelset (Rear): Rolf Elan rear - 716g
Skewers: KCNC - 45g
CPU: Sefras wireless s+c - 97g
total 7.36kg

Thanks for the suggestions and comments.

The last things I will eventually replace with my budget is the cranks, brakes and seat to: Hollowgram SL (Still not sure:170 or 175mm), KCNC CB1, and a Chinese carbon 100g saddle (worth a try@$60), that will get me to about 6.6kg and still under budget or 6.75kg with the Fizik saddle.

This is a race/training specific build, it is rode daily. The Frame is size 54. I tried the rival/SRAM group when I was test riding new bikes, didn't like the way it sounded. And I didn't like the shifting either. I would be upgrading the crank so I didn't want to spend extra for something I would replace anyway.

Brakes are a big killer than i can see already.

And from what I know of WW products, $1/g (from the point that you are at now) is going to be pretty tough to stick to.

$3000 USD?

Buy the caad9-4 to start with. The 2010 rival is lighter than DA7900(the caaad9-4 has the bb30 force crank). Use the $1200 or so you have left to buy whatever bar/stem you like and a nice set of hand built wheels.

Supersonics? Hope you're not planning to use it daily :wink:

Get some proper tyres (Vittorai CX 320s) and save the weight with lighter pedals.

Get some alligator i-link and mini i-link cables/housing and replace the rim tape with velo plugs, should see 50-100g improvement.

Plus the pedals can go lighter

Agree with others to start with the rival build but it looks like the bike is already purchased. 150g for bar tape? Some deda cork tape would save over 100g at that rate and cost about .15/g some speedplays/look/whatever would cut another 60-100g off your pedals and a set of kcnc brakes can be picked up for fairly cheap now to take another 120g off. Even a heavy(by WW standards) saddle would be around 200g which would easily come in under the $1/g criteria.

I agree, go full Dura Ace and the bike will be well below 7kg. Here is my CAAD 9 with full Ultegra and 298g Si fork at 7.0kg:

I know saddles are very personal but I could not help but give a giggle when I saw yours. Its a beautifull bike but the saddle... :noidea:

Im sure if you experiment a little you can find something more suitable... and lighter

cranks and saddle. those fsa's are tanks. and the saddle if you bought that bike you should know better by now. those seats put to much pressure on your hands. try putting a regular saddle on, lower your seat about a half cm and rotate your bars up and you would probably feel more comfortable.

Personally I think that a large rod pressing against my perineum is QUITE uncomfortable, but that is me. I am fine with this setup, man, you would DIE laughing if you saw my commuter. I found that comfort is most important and "The SEAT" is it. And yeah the FSA cranks will go once I get the Hollowgram SISL's.
