I have the bug to build something a little different so I have just sent a CAAD10 I aquired off to the painters for a custom paintjob infact itll match the Cannondale SLICE RS Blk Inc I am waiting for.

I will build it up with Hollowgram SiSl cranks, MK V rings, SRAM Red Black with the limited edition Cannondale Green highlights. Basically all the bits off my current Cannondale EVO Team build here. viewtopic.php?f=10&t=102052" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

My old CAAD10 viewtopic.php?f=10&t=91152" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

My last CAAD10 was 6.68kg the EVO was just under 6kg at best. Im hoping this CAAD10 will be around 6.5kg

Here is a pic of the frame from the painters, Ill post more as the build comes along.

is the caad10 that good? ie., you are choosing it over the evo? or are you still keeping the evo and building it with 2013 parts? i guess you could swap over the 7900 too i suppose.

YES..... I think the CAAD10 is that good. Dont get me wrong the EVO is a great bike but its not that much better, the difference in price between the two frames is a fair amount and I can only really tell a difference when im out of the saddle attacking the climbs.

The white 7900 CAAD10 was sold long ago and I miss that bike, the EVO replaced it but Ive been wanting a Anodised black CAAD10 for ages and since they not doing a Mecanical compatible frameset this year, I decided to build the next best thing.

Frame should arrive at the shop tomorrow to build up.

This looks really, really nice. Zipps make it.

Colour not unlike a green version of the Black edition caad10.
How is the finish?

All it needs is a Spidering!

Bike looks good. I like the stripped 340's. Maybe I should ripp off my decals too?

I was thinking about the spider ring but I already had all these parts and my SLICE RS Blk Inc is due to land in a week or two :shock:

The finish is GREAT, I used a bike specific frame repairer/painter that do alot of work for the big bike brands out here when they need it. Paint jobs are hard to pick from the factory finish.

I was skeptical of the paint job before I saw the finished build. It turned out great!
