Hey folks, not new around here, but I've been MIA for a while. I'm back with a new build. Just got this 2013 CAAD10 frameset in size 58cm and my goal is to get it below 6.8kg. Wanted to shoot for sub 6.3kg, but I'm a big dude (6ft, 212lbs) and not sure the super light stuff can handle me. So I'm going to sacrifice some weight for a stronger build. The frame came in at 1324g and the fork (uncut) at 432g for a total of 1756g.

I will be updating this thread as the build progresses, but here is build list that I've decided on. Still have ways to go. Any reccos welcomed! Pics below.

You're a 6 ft dude? How are you going to fit on a 58 mm frame? :wink:

Just messing with you. Good luck on the build, I'll be waiting to see this built up.

One of my favourite frames+paintjobs. Looking forward to see the build progressing. Is a fizik saddle in team colours out of the question?

Do you mean this one? Never been a fan of Fizik saddles, and that sucker is heavy. But I am going with the green tape. :)

Meant the Aliante http://www.bikerumor.com/2011/05/19/fiz ... dust-caps/ but of course a saddle has to fit, before anything else. Green tape ftw!

Well sure, if you compare it to a full carbon bike that costs a fortune. But this seems pretty light for a 58cm aluminum frameset that's under $1,000. I haven't see anything lighter in that range.

How many aluminium road frames are lighter

I think the CAAD thread shows that theses frames can build into awesome bikes

Give 'er! That's going to be a sweet ride.

Noticed you plan on running the GXP Force crank - Isn't the CAAD 10 a BB30?

Yes, you are correct. I fixed that. Going with the SRAM Red.

So, I've updated the build list at the top with all the parts I've decided on. The first parts have started to trickle in. Got a Ritchey WCS Carbon single-bolt seat post 350mm and I've replaced the bolt with a titanium one. Weight came in at 180g. I might cut this sucker once I have the saddle at the right height. Not a bad weight, though.

The saddle has arrived. Got a full carbon brand-less Chinese saddle for less than $100. Feels really solid and the finish is great. Best of all it weights only 93g. Looking forward to trying it out.
