It's time to build a Black on Black Bike on a Budget (BoBBoB).
I've been riding a 2003 Trek 1000 (63 cm - with Sora & a triple up front) for quite some time and it's time to move onto something a little better. Auction said 2011 CAAD 10 frame.
2011 Cannondale CAAD10 Frame (60 cm) - 1355g frame [with Headset, BB, RD hanger, cage bolts, seat post clamp. (est. 1218 g )]
2011 Cannondale CAAD10 Fork---------- 414 g uncut
Cannondale SiSL w/ 52/36 FSA Rings------ 609 g (have compact Spidering will weigh when swapped)
Kalloy Uno Superlite 120mm stem--------- 121 g
ControlTech Viento SC 40cm Handlebar---- 257 g
Fizik R3 Braided Saddle------------------ 160 g
Tuned S-Works Setback Seatpost--------- ~175 g
Total Mass ---------------------------- 2991 g
For wheels I'm considering getting a set of Cosmic Elite's from eBay or getting some chinese carbon clinchers.
As I go through the build I'll update with weights. It most likely won't be too light, but I'll see what needs to be replaced to get me close to the 6.8 kg mark.
Would I be better served going for a NOS Ultegra 6700 build group (or SRAM Force)?
If you want a light build, anything is better than shimano 105.
Look up some tables with a comparison of different groups e.g.

It deserves great attention to detail in the build IMO. You don't need to spend a lot to get a light and very robust bike but throwing on a few heavy bits can destroy the overall weight (assuming this is at least partially important for you)... equally being smart and hunting for those little nuggets like the Kalloy stem can really make a difference
Looking forward to seeing it built up!
Wow! What a great resource! I can lose almost a pound going with Force over 105 (and almost half a pound over Ultegra).
And thanks for the heads up on the stem too!
Edit: I found that the FD is 89 g (3 g more than 6800), RD is 180 g (13 g less than 6800) and that the brakes are 300 g (40 g less than 6800)

And it's all directly on the SRAM sight now… I'm an idiot. Shifters are 87 grams lighter. Cassette is about 50 g heavier.
I picked up a Hollowgram SL and so the BB30/BB24 factor doesn't play a part.
I'm leaning toward Ultegra right now (better brakes, better rear shifting, better price), but the no trim FD w/ Force/Rival would be nice.
Personally, if I were on a budget, I'd go 10 speed. You should be able to get a better bang for your buck, but if you ride this bike for the same amount of time as your trek, it might be worth starting with 11 speed.
Finally, matching groups and parts although looks nice, is often the enemy of light on a budget. The kalloy stem someone mentioned, Planet X brakes, titanium skewers, all water down the consistency of a bike but they are all light pieces that perform well.
Can't wait to see what you decide and the finished product.
i think i'd focus on the wheels and the groupset. the hint with the 10sp. groupsets was a good one i believe. i wouldn't go for an 11sp. groupset if i were on a budget build. as for function and weight, i think ultegra-level or campy centaur (my choice) should be good: great function, acceptable weight and price. maybe you can find a bargain for an older version and a lighter (carbon) crankset somewhere?! there should be some weenies selling their 10sp. gear for 11sp. stuff...
as for the other components (seatpost, stem and bar), i think i would try to find components which match the look of the frame: matte black with glossy black decals. you already mentioned fizik, kalloy uno grade 3, 3t arx team had a black series stem (not sure if there was matching bar and seatpost). other choices include deda superleggero stem (bar and seatpost?), ritchey is worth looking at (the superlogic components would match perfectly but those are carbon and therefore definitely not budget; WCS aluminium without logos maybe?), germany-based syntace has some very good components i can highly recommend (not budget though), kcnc maybe, or easton's EA70 series could also be worth looking at.
i think my choices would be: kalloy uno (or easton), campagnolo centaur groupset (maybe with a light (carbon?) crankset), and a good and light wheelset. i can recommend campagnolo's zonda wheelset (clincher version; 2-way-fit isn't necessary; those wheels are light (1550g), "affordable", and very good). i believe the build would be bad-ass!!!
man, i'm digging deep into your build here...
enjoy your build !!!
For wheels I've been looking at the Soul 2.0 and the Blackest Race 14 from Bicycle Wheel Warehouse. There's also carbon clinchers. There are a few people local to me with some Easton EA 90 SLX wheels (though I've read about spoke problems on the earlier models).
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
