Hi, been about 8 years off the bike. Got the bug back again Spring this year.

Upgraded my old race bike to a winter "hack", and just started a new project for next spring:-

Someting a bit special arrived in the post today, so time to start the pics...

That may be the first Di2 CAAD I've ever seen, looks sweet. Are the parts getting moved over to the new frame?

Well the 7700 was about knackered when I got the bike out the garage in spring. I was saving up for the Archon (or a Helix), but I ended up having to replace the grouppo on the cannondale to keep on riding. There's no going back to cables now, and I don't really wanna strip it all down each time i swap bikes, so another Di2 grouppo looks likely. Will hang the frame on the wall through the winter while I'm saving up again.

I have some new DuraAce 7850 C24's to go on, boxed and wrapped ready to open Xmas day. Another Di2 groupset is going on, no question about that, so that leaves handlebars, saddle...

Thinking about carrying on with the white theme adding a touch of red to go with the Red nipples on the wheels and the white (and red trim) Time Ultream shoes.

Havent ordered this stuff yet, not sure if it would be too ghastly, need some opinions. Weights are good though (not lowest of the low, but pretty low).

Saddle - 129gr

Post - 174gr
http://www.bike24.com/images/products/p0416139.jpg

Bars - 198gr
http://www.bike24.com/images/products/p0416137.jpg

Stem - 120gr
http://www.bike24.com/images/products/p0416135.jpg

Any thoughts before I click "Buy" ?

The color goes well with your frame. Keep in mind 3T has a tendency to stretch the truth when it comes to claimed weights.

Payday came, and so did a saddle. (SLR Kit Carbonio)

Edit: Ooops, bit of a "spot the error" going on with the back wheel in these ones!

Looks really cool so far even with the backwards wheel.
