Hello guys.

Here's my new project. 2011 CAAD10-1 anodized frame, 58cm.

Here's a "in process" picture:

Image

Specs when it's done:
Groupset: SRAM Red (Force front derailleur)
Stem: Ritchey WCS 4-Axis, 110mm - Blacked out
Handlebar: Ritchey WCS Curve, 42cm - Blacked Out
Bartape: Lizard Skins DSP Race, Black
Fork expander + Topcap: Carbon-Ti
Headset: Stock Tange Seiki w. STS bearing cover
Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece 27.2, 330mm (Will cut it down)
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR Fibra Team, All black
Bottlecages + Bottles: Arundel Mandible Matte Oil Slick + Camelbak Podium
Chain: KMC X10SL
Crankset: Cannondale Hollowgram Si Sl, 175mm 53/39
Pedals: Look Kéo Blade Carbon Ti, 16NM
Cables: Alligator I-links
Brakes: Planet X Ultralight CNC, black
Wheelset (Race): Enve 45 Clincher w. custom black decals
Wheelset (Training): BHS Superlight Wide / DT Revolution / Velocity A23
Skewers: KCNC Titanium

I'm still waiting for crankset, bartape and cables. I'm really looking forward to see how this bike performs. The target weight is around 6.8kg

Also looking for a SRAM Red Black rear derailleur as it would finish the stealth look.

Happy new year!

Cheers

Beautiful start! That bike is just screaming to have the levers sanded to a matte black. Regardless of whether or not you take that (pretty extreme) step it is going to look great. Well done.

I have thought about sanding the whole lever or just removing the red with a razorblade and applying clear coat.

Cheers

Coming along beautifully brother! Did the cranks arrive yet?

What kind of top cap assembly will you use?
I only train on days that end with "y".

Cheers and thanks man :)

No luck on the cranks yet, damn USPS. Gotta be patient i guess :)

I'm gonna use expander plug from Carbon-Ti (14g) and Carbon-Ti carbon topcap

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.

Ride a CAAD10 and you'll know. Hell of a race bike.

Looking forward to seeing this one finished.

I have.
And it's a joke... My statement about alu frames, that is.
Do you need a smiley to understand?

It's the perfect ww caad10 frame. I would have got one if it was available with the 105 spec. Could you be persuaded to go with another setback seatpost, maby a 3T Dorico Stealth. That kink on the Thomson hurts the asthetics a bit.
