After months of waiting, the bike finally came in. I got the Cannnondale EVO that comes with Sram Red and only kept the frame, shifters, and derailleurs. I have a Cannondale Caad 10 all black, so I wanted to build this bike a little bit brighter.
I already had all the parts I had chosen for this bike, so the only thing missing was the frame.
These are the parts I chose to build this bike
Cannondale si cranks
Sram ceramic BB30 bottom bracket
Trp r970 sl black magnesium brakes
KMC black chain
Selle italia slr team edition carbon saddle
Deda superzero seatpost
Deda Presa 44 white carbon bars
Deda Zero 100 120 mm stem
Lizard skin white racing tape
Kcnc Black ti skewers
Sram 1090 11-23 cassette
Zipp 404 tubular wheels
Look keo ti blade pedals
Campagnolo record cages (with logo removed)

The bike without cages and pedals weighted 5.7 k or 12.7 lbs, and with pedals and cages 13.2lbs
I also got a pair of white mavic ksyrium equipe wheels for trainning and It is still under 14.5 lbs

My Caad 10 weights 14.1 lbs and it has similar components as the EVO
Cannondale si cranks
Sram ceramic BB30 bottom bracket
Trp r960 black brakes
KMC black chain
Selle italia slr saddle
Thomson Masterpiece setback seatpost
Deda Zero 44 Alloy bars
Thomson 120 mm stem
Lizard skin Black racing tape
Kcnc Black ti skewers
Sram 1090 11-23 black cassette
Zipp 404 tubular wheels
Look keo carbon pedals
Cannondale alloy cages


I rode the bike once and it feels more comfortable than the CAAD 10 but it still stiff and responsive. I love it
I hope you guys like it

Love this, doing a similar concept of building a carbon and aluminum versions of the same bike built similarly, just the build will be around a Specialized Tarmac and Allez with Campagnolo.

Solid builds for sure though.

The Deda parts on your evo look really nice.

I said it before and I'll say it again; That CAAD10, aesthetically blows the EVO away.
It is just so damn sinister looking, like it came to take care of business,
slap the competition and take their lunch money, then, date it's sister.

Your CAAD10 build makes me want to do something I never thought I'd consider.
It makes me want to build another aluminum road bike.

My intention now?

-Get an EVO Sram Red and a black anodized frameset.
-Use all the take-off parts from the EVO to slap them on the CAAD10.
-Build-up the EVO with some premium carbon bits to get her in the high 12lb range.
-Have the CAAD10 as a back-up/training rig & parts mule.

I'd have an awesome pair of CDales for under $10K.
