I bought it stock as a Caad9-5, upgraded shifters and deraileurs to SRAM red, threw those on another bike, sold that off and now I'm starting from scratch.
I wanted a solid build, but I also aim to break the 6.8kg barrier, all on a student budget. I bought a lot of stuff second hand, which helped lower the costs.
At this present time, I don't think I'll make the 6.8, so I'll have to find some lighter bits.
Give me your input.
Edit* Swapped the really heavy 6800 brakes for the new Ciamillo Micro brakes, est 150g per set. Should knock off a good amount of weight, closer to 6.8 now.
Should get the cannondale evo expander from the LBS hopefully too.
Also farsports carbon cages to replace the ridiculously heavy elite plastic.
Frame and Fork: Cannondale Caad9 BB30 54cm
Headset: Stock Cane Creek?
Handlebars: 3T Ergonova Team stealth
Stem: 3T ARX Team 110mm +-6deg
Shifters: Shimano Ultegra 6800
FD and RD: Shimano Ultegra 6800
Brakes: Ciamillo Micro
Crankset: Cannondale Hollowgram SISL 172.5 110BCD
Chainrings: Praxis 52/36 110BCD
Chain: Shimano DA9000
Seatpost: 3T Dorico Ltd
Saddle: Selle italia SLR Carbonio Flow
Wheelset: Farsports 38mm 23mm wide carbon clincher
Tyres and tubes: Continental GP4000s
Plus other miscellaneous bits.
I'm waiting on a backorder for the cassette, and need to wait for the brakes.
I'm also waiting on my next paycheck so I can buy the wheels, unless someone's willing to sell me a set of deep carbon hoops weighing <1200g for <$1k?
Here are some weights to keep you entertained until the build.
P.S. Ignore the FSA crank, I don't have a rubber mallet to remove it just yet. That bugger is in there tight.
Nice scale btw......

That said, I actually don't mind the weight. The drivetrain is incredibly smooth, I've never ridden anything like it before. And it's the characteristic Caad ride, firm but not harsh.
