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?

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.
