Alright everyone thanks. Let me know what you guys think.
Don't be so afraid of carbon. If you don't drop/crash it every time and torque everything to spec, it should last a long time. Cannondale carbons are quite resistant to being bashed around, I hear.
I think you should start upgrading from the wheels&tires, instead of the crankset. Switching to GP4000S'es or Veloflexes will make a world of difference in ride quality. For the wheelset, you can buy handbuilts or factory wheelsets (Ultegra, Fulcrum Racing 3 etc.) and shave 300-400 grams.
Awesome bike, btw. Ride the hell out of it.

Once you buy your tools, removing the dork disc will take the whole of three minutes to figure out how to remove the cassette, remove the disc, and reinstalling it.
From there, go with high quality wheels. Ultegra wheels are great, albeit, a bit on the heavy side. Do some research and buy what fits in your budget. After that, start looking at other components.

I'll figure something out. Thanks efeballi I plan on a lot of riding over the summer and the wheels are a top priority. I was thinking maybe Tokyo Wheels as they are 1500 grams and VERY cheap for carbon wheels, but I'm not really sure yet I need to do a lot of research before i get some carbon wheels....I just want to make sure that they can handle my weight.
I bought a used 2014 synapse that already had Chinese carbon wheels on it and they have worked out great for me. Our roads are terrible and i am a bigger guy and have had no issues. The only advise i would give is to make sure that all of the spokes are tensioned correctly. Mine were way off, but since i fixed them I have had no issues.
Hopefully this works. Sorry. I am a newbie.

@russ1979 Thank you. I don't know the weight. I need to get it to the bike shop and see where i am at. I'll post more pics and pics of my Crux in a different thread once i get weights on both.
