Evening Weenies

Ok, I know, Caad9s are not unknown to this forum. I have gone through all the caad9 threads in the introduction section. Despite the numerous caad9s on the forum, I didnt found any that I thougth was real hot except for member airsoft white caad9, Fail's black caad9 and 2002saecoreplica's one. This will be my contribution to this cummunity under the section dedicated racing/functionnal yet "light" bike. I cant wait to ride it, maybe I'll be able to do so in a few..... months... crappy winter weather.

here's a short summary of how I ended up buying a caad9 so soon after buying a velocite slene.

After having started building my Velocite Selene, I realized I needed to finally buy what I really wanted for long: a caad9 with an hollowgram crankset, built into a decent light bike. So I broke the bank and spent the cash, now, bike related expenses are over.... at least ....uuggghh for.... arrrgg.... now :P

The Selene came in at a heavy weight because of the BB adapter and the SRM. So it will be my training and B-race bike. The build is not done yet because I am waiting for some sram stuff, I'll update when I get it.

The caad9 will be my nice, "light" bike, my target weight was 7000g without pedals. I'll use it for A races and long ride without the use of a powermeter. The cannondale frameset was slightly used but in very nice shape, thanks to a local cannondale head for helping sourcing it.

Also, special thanks to Phallenthoul who helped with a lot of parts at a great price, great seller, I would never hesitate to buy from him again.

The fun part: PICS

And now, the crunchy part: WEIGHTS

Frame: caad9 BBQ black bb30 54 cm =====> 1277g w/o cages bolts
Fork: cannondale premium full carbon fork =====> 419g
Stem: thomson x2 130mm -/+ 10 deg =====> 161g
Bars: ritchey wcs classic =====> 243g
Seatpost: thomson masterpiece setback =====> 161g to be tuned with Ti bolts
Saddle: Prologo nago evo nack =====> 157g
Seatpost clamp: KCNC =====> 11g
Headset: cane creek =====> 53g
Expender plug: extralite ultrastar 2 + 5mm spacer =====> 8g
Top cap: tune carbon =====> 4g
Shifters: Sram red =====> 293g
Rear derailleur: Sram force =====> 173g
Front derailleur: Sram force =====> 101g
Brakes: Sram force =====> 286g
Crankset: cannondale hollowgram sisl SRM 175mm 39/53 =====> ??g
BB: cannondale SI ceramic =====> 56g
Cassette: ultegra 6700 12-25 =====> 234g
Chain: ultegra 6600=====> 262g
Cables and housing: gore ride on =====> 151g
Skewer: KCNC =====> 45g
Bottle cages: generic carbon with steel bolts =====> 69g to be tuned with alloy bolts
Computer: SRM PCV =====> ??g
Bar tape: easton cork =====> 50g
Tires: michelin pro 3 race =====> 408g
Tubes: vittoria ultralight =====> 175g
Pedals: Look keo2max =====> 258g
Wheelset: 240s, kinlin xr-200, dt rev and comp, 32/32, including rim tape and cateye magnet =====> 1436g

total weight with handbuilt wheels and pedals: 7123g

total weight with cosmics and pedals: 7546g

The build has nothing spectacular. I tried to pay attention to details and I picked components one by one according to my needs. I expect to drop arround 50g with the planned upgrades/tuning. I could easily go sub 6.8 if I'd changed the brakes for KCNC ones and the porky fork for an Alpha Q one. ANY COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS WELCOMED

Hope you like

Very nice. Thomson MP is lighter than I thought! Was it cut?

Interested to see what you do with the expander! The cap bit on mine is 21g.

I will use look keo 2 max pedals, the weight does not include them.

The Si expander and cap weights 48g!!!! Ultrastar and tune cap should come arround 12-13g. I'd love to get the build under 6.8kg without pedals

@choiboi

my masterpiece weighted in at 192g uncut. I then cut about 8 cm and saved 31g, the Ti bolts kit would save another 7 g

Very cool bike :thumbup: .

I like it better with the Mavics, to bad they're the heavy option. I think an Enve/Endge fork would look nice, and the matt finish will match your frame plus the added bonus of the huge weight savings.

yup, I thougth about the enve fork but is expensive. I was looking at alpha q fork but they seem rare... Maybe if I get some spare $ someday I will buy an edge 2.0 fork.

The handbuilt wheels look more classic. They are perfect for racing and training! Plus they are solid.

Soo stealth! 8) Very nice and classy build!

What's your saddle height (center bb - top of saddle)? I'm doubting between a 52 or 54 C'dale and this could help me to get a reference. Thanks!
