Well about a month ago, I was hit by a car after one of my races while heading back to the team cars. I was relatively uninjured but my bike was banged up. Had some dents and cracked so I got the insurance to reimburse me so I'm building up another caad10 now. I really like the frame and I don't want to go into carbon yet, so this is the top for me.

build:
caad10-3 bbq sz 54
hollowgram sisl
dura ace pedals
sram red group
3t ergonova pro bars, arx team 6 degree 130mm (realized my bars were too low and stem too short), 3t dorico ltd
selle italia turbomatic team
dura ace c50 tubs

so far I've gotten the C50 tubulars and debadged them (still have to remove some glue residue). base bike and hollowgram are on the way, should get everything within a couple weeks

also got a 3T Dorico LTD seatpost

Image

and Stronglight CT2 chainrings on the way for the SISL

Image

not really meant to be a super WW build, but here are some weights for those interested (rings are 50/34)

My thoughts exactly!

Funny, I love all black wheels, but somehow those looked better to me while having decals on.
Anyway, have to wait for the final build :thumbup:

Maybe I'll put newer decals on, we'll see (I thought the decals would look a bit odd with the sram group)

Ohh there are some of my favorite suffs here.
I'm a sucker for those wheeeeels :thumbup: (and you gave them the tan tubes :thumbup: )

Would be my race dream bike with a mechanical Dura Ace or Ultegra

Dont worry, you can still make custom white SRAM decals.

Nice job! What did you use to debadge the Vittoria's?
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

well I debadged the rims by just peeling the stickers off. they were like aluminum foil and came off very easily, but left a bit of residue

everything has been ordered except stem and bars

Get that bad boy buttoned up and take some money shots so I can decide on the SCs vs CXs for mine.

I know, but it seems like you also debadged the tubulars too.

Tubs still have the badges on, the tires came with the wheels and all I did was have them reglued. I have ghost 7900 decals coming too
