I want to give my 2012 Cannondale CAAD10 a major overhaul.
I bought it in early 2012 without any knowledge of road bikes, i only rode track bikes then and going geared made sense.
The guy at the bike shop insisted that got the 105 model with a triple crankset. Which i regretted 2 weeks after, i live in the Netherlands so there's absolutely no point for that third ring. More importantly having a triple on a race bike looks all kinds of wrong as well. Plus they setup the bike poorly which ended in back and knee issues within a few weeks.
After two years of riding it like that it's time for something new, the weight and lack of stiffness of the current setup is starting to bother me and i want to start racing this season.
I have a general idea of what i want but am still debating about some components:
Frame: Cannondale CAAD10 58 (56st / 58tt)
Fork: Cannondale CAAD10
Headset: Stock Tange
Stem: Zipp Service Course SL, 140mm -6º
Bars: Zipp Service Course SL88, 44cm
Tape: CA DNC
Front brake: Sram Force 22
Rear brake: Sram Force 22
Levers: Sram Force 22
Front derailleur: Sram Force 22
Rear derailleur: Sram Force 22
Cassette: Sram Force 22 - 11-26
Crankset: Sram Force 22 - 175mm
Chainrings: Sram Force 22
Bottom bracket: Sram Force 22 bb30
Pedals: Look Keo Blade 2 Cr
Tyres: Continental GP4000S 700x23c
Saddle: Fi'zi:k Arione
Seatpost: Zipp Service Course SL (20mm setback)
Elite Sior Evo bottle cages
SRAM Quickview mount
Groupset is either going to be Force 22 or Red 22. The reason i want to ditch Shimano for SRAM is mainly because it don't like the brake lever that 'swivels' on Shimano shifters. I like the idea of the loud shifting of SRAM and the Yaw FD sounds like it's a lot less hassle than trimming. (But that might be because trimming with a triple is kinda awkward and sometimes causes it to jump to the smallest chainring) I've never ridden SRAM or Campagnolo though so i have no clue how either performs on the road.
I really like the look of Red 22 but going for Force saves me a lot of money which i can put into a fancy crankset (SiSl2, Rotor) and/or power meter.
For the wheels i was initially thinking about Zipp 101's to match the other Zipp components but HED belgiums laced to r45's (24/28) seem like a better choice. As the 101's seem quite heavy and expensive. I definitely want 23mm wide rims for 25c tyres.
Since i'm used to riding a really heavy bike weight is not too important as it's going to feel a lot lighter anyway but if i can get it around the 7kg mark that would be neat.
Any input is appreciated!
I plan to rebuilt it from 105 as well, was thinking about Force. But I have decided (but I can still change it) for complete Ultegra. I don't like FSA very much, so I will ditch original crankset too.
As I see it, there are two ways: make the CAAD complete American (frame, sram, zipp cockpit and wheels) or not. The only thing I don't like about Force is design of brake levers. They seem to me very long. I want my levers be little bit bulky (yeah, Shimano) and long enough, not too much, not short either. Even though I would really like to try that Yaw FD. And SRAM will save you more grams
And, where are the photos?

Sram hoods feel the same as 5700 and 6800 in terms of size, if not a bit bigger atmo.

I'll post some pics whenever i make any progress with the build, as the current state is anything but special.
If you are happy conceptually with SRAM, then Force 22 will serve you quite well. Red is a whole lot more money for quite similar performance, and if you are overhauling the whole bike you're likely better served by saving some coin and putting it towards other components.
If you haven't pulled the trigger yet, CRC is having a pretty decent sale right now.
