Nice. I was thinking of doing something similar. Where did you get the frame and how much did you pay for it?

I was just going to build up a campy chorus 11 speed CAAD 10. I've done it several times with a CAAD 9, but not a 10. Got the frame and it was the liquigas colors - sold it straight away. It's a team frame, so what can you do, but that frame you have looks much, much better.

I rode it with the Si SL cranks, too. Worked fine, but make sure you check those cranks every now and then, not a play with the press bearing and mine got to a point where there was a lot of friction.

This will be nice and clean. Had 10-speed Record on my Caad10 last year, and Ambrosio Crono F20rims on one wheelset :D

Thanks for all the comments.

Build nearly complete.

Wheels complete. Total weight with quick releases is 1540g. Was actually expecting a bit less, but high spoke count. Having said that, the wheels do look incredible!

Update to spec includes:
- Stronglight 11 speed chainrings 53/39
- Continental Sprinter tubs 22mm
- white brake hoods

Seatpost has yet to arrive. So using a temporary Cannondale one.

Decided on Speedplays, only not which ones. Can get a ti pair in green for good price, but would wreck the dark look. Also looking at black or white in cromo alloy.

Aiming for under 7kg for the whole bike. Not sure if this will happen now.

Will update with pictures and weights soon.

Very cool build!

Where did you order the 3T Stealth components from?

To answer some questions...

Frame and 3T kit came from bike shop. Think the 3T stuff is fairly widely available. Still waiting for my seatpost to arrive. The stem does have a very nice finish in the flesh.

Why hollowgram? It's light, stiff, looks incredible and matches frame perfectly. Although chorus crank nice, I think the way to go on a Cannondale is with the hollowgram.

Total weight as shown without pedals is 7.04kg. Should definitely be less than seven with correct seatpost and cut steerer.

Swweeeeettt. White hoods are a nice touch. I love when people put Campagnolo on a Cannondale, Specialized, Trek or Scott. Respect to you for doing your own thing.
