This is the upgrade list so far:
Campagnolo Shamal™ Ultra™ 2012 Wheels
Ritchey WCS Carbon Matrix 4-AXIS UD Stem
Sella Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow Saddle
C-Bear Ceramic Bearings (after the original Bottom Bracket was broken within 1 year -> thanks Cannondale !).
2 x Cannondale Carbon Cage EVO
2 x Schwalbe Ultremo ZX
Next on the (wish)list is a Ritchey WCS Superlogic evolution carbon bar to replace the heavy Cannondale C3 Bar (would save more than 100 grams).
The Weight came down significantly, but I want to push it further. So, my question is to you guys: what do you recommend ?
(yes, forget the saddle bag in the picture ).
Thomson masterpiece seatpost. 142gr
SRAM red cassette 166gr
Kcnc skewers 45gr
Tune topcap and extralite expander (should save you 30plus grams)
Conti supersonic tubes - saves 40gr each over conventional tubes.
I upgraded to the following parts:
Campagnolo Shamal Ultra 2012 Wheels (1425 grams)
Ritchey Superlogic II handlebar with 3T Pro Tape (188 + 61 grams)
Ritchey WCS Carbon Matrix 4-AXIS UD Stem (121 grams)
Sella Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow (115 grams)
two Cannondale Carbon Cages (40 grams total)
Dura-Ace 7901 chain (252 grams)
Dura Ace 7900 pedals (248 grams)
KCNC Chainring bolts (10 grams)
Ultremo ZX tires
What parts would you recommend to save more weight on the CAAD10 - and then especially looking at a USD/gram basis ? (yes and forget about the pump and the saddle bag in the picture ).
Then it depends on your goal. A low profile tubular wheelset would save some weight to and be a nice upgrade

By the way I did upgrade the topcap to a much lighter one.
The question for me what the most cost effective way is to reduce more weight (i.e. in terms of USD per gram).
The crankset I gave a thought of course, thinking about Dura Ace 7900 one, but in terms of weight reduction costs, it is like USD 2 per gram - which is not really tempting ...
