My 2013 bike. I was contemplating getting it painted like Sagan's green jersey TdF bike, but after seeing the frame in the flesh I may just keep it as is it is.

Build List:
CAAD10 Black Inc 50cm
SRM with Praxis rings and SiSL2 crankarms
DA Di2 with internal battery
Zipp SCSL Beyond Black Bar/Stem/Seatpost
DA C50 tubs
Tune Speedneedle
Keo Blade Ti

SRM is on its way. I'll just need the new 109mm BB spindle and I'll be good to go.

Edit:
Been riding this round for the last month, feeling good with my position on the bike so I just got the steerer cut:

Weighs around 7.6kg with my Ultegra training wheels.

LBS - You may not be able to get one from yours though. Cannondale Aus told my LBS back in August that they would be providing the Black Inc as a frameset, so I put in an order for one. Turns out they were wrong and framesets won't be sold. My LBS stood by me regardless and sold me a stripped down one for the agreed price.

Similar things happen with other Ultegra Di2 full builds. It's a way of bypassing Australian pricing on Di2 groups which is, frankly, ridiculous.

Nice ride! The C50 tubs make this. A perfect race machine.

How would the battery be mounted if you were using an external? Thinking about doing similar with campagnolo eps. Don't like the size of that battery. If under downtube, would be ideal.

Thanks...

The external battery mount is next to the BB on the downtube. There should be plenty of room.

The mounting holes are approx 3.5cm from centre to centre. Not sure how that lines up with the EPS battery.

Nice Caad10 :thumbup:

As for the batt mounting, yes it's compatible for both EPS and Di2.

SRM arrived.

Just need that BB spindle with the new spacers. Beginning to look like my only option at this point is to buy a complete SiSL2 crankset for the BB. I suppose I could upgrade the cranks on my SuperSix.... :mrgreen:
