Excited to update this post. I am finally receiving my 9150 shifters in the mail today!!! Also will be trying out a new saddle, the Aliante 00. The 2 upgrades should shave another 170g. Also considering switching to the bar end junction to clean up the front end even further but it would require a change of bars or modification of my Easton ec70 bars. The do not have clear passage from the ends to the internal routing on the tops.

Will post pics once UPS shows up.

This bike continues to amaze me. Comfortable is fast!

Finally!!!

Will probably take a couple of weeks to get the bar end junction. I just ordered it from Germany. Hopefully no issues in customs.

Installed Aliante 00. saddle is awesome. Really surprised how comfortable it is compared to the VSX I had on there before.

New bar end junction arrives tomorrow so hopefully I can have the new 9150 shifters installed next week. Will update weight once everything installed.

Beautiful bike! I'm in the same predicament in reference to si-sisl2 power meter.

Thinking about going with 4iiii power meter to keep the arms matching. Simply sending in the arm for them to install the power meter. This may be an option to you.

I just have no reviews on the power meter from 4iiii. I've grown well accustomed to the stages and works flawlessly.

Again, beautiful bike! Great build

4iiii site says it can't be installed on the 2016 and 2017 year si arms. They don't say why though. I just finally found a 10 arm spidering in the gearing I want. Most people seem to say stages sucks, but I may have to get that if I don't want to change pedals.

With lots of reservations given all the "stages sucks" comments I've heard, I took the chance with it and I have to say my current model stages has been flawless so far after about 1600km. It definitely "just works" and the power readings seem very consistent. And since this is WW after all, it's super light to boot!

Thanks for the vote of confidence for the stages. I really want a PM soon, and want to keep my spidering!
Still think that is the best color cannondale has

Go for it! I've been training with heart and power for the last year. It definitely changed how I train for the better.

Its been way to busy the last few months and I have not had a chance to update my build thread, but a lot has changed!

Updated build list below with changes in red. New pictures to follow. I am planning on switching back to black Lizard Skin or Supacaz for the bar tap. Also added the new bar end junction box. The big surprise has been the KCNC CB1's. After all the reviews I read, I wasn't expecting much. They actually work great and are crazy light. Picked them up off the bay for $65!!! Cheapest grams/$ savings for sure.

New Weight:....6.11kg. / 13.45lb. ready to ride with pedals, cages.

Seatpost - SAVE Carbon --MCFK matte UD 25.4x320 weight 122g (savings of 76g)
Seat - Aliante VSX Braided -- Fizik Aliante 00 black weight 172g (savings of 100g)
Stem - Easton EA90 120mm -10 degree --MCFK 120mm -6 94g (savings of 49g)
Bar - Easton EC70 Aero 40cm --3T Ergonova Team Stealth 197g (savings of 58g)
Bartape - SupaCaz Super Sticky Cush (Brontrager Gel ZigZag)
bottle cages - Arundel Mandible matte 3k --CarbonWorks cages 15g for the pair (savings of 45g)
Brakes - Dura Ace 9000 --KCNC CB1 Black 169g with all hardware and Enve pads (Savings of 126g)
Front derailleur - Dura Ace 9070 Di2
Rear derailleur - Dura Ace 9070 Di2
Crankset - Cannondale SI with Stages Power meter
Chainrings - 10-arm SpiderRing 53/39 50-/34 10-arm Spider (~5-10g savings?)
Chain - Dura Ace 9000
Shifters - Ultegra 6770 --Dura Ace 9150 Shifters (did not weigh but based on posted weights should have saved ~90g)
Cassette - 11-28 Dura Ace 9000
Wheels - Enve 6.7's Clinchers --ICAN FL40, 40mm depth / 25mm ext. 18mm int. 1396g (still have the Enve's, but I have been enjoying the faster spin up of these wheels. they are still very stiff laterally and I am not getting any brake rub)
hubs - White Industries T11 hubs --Novatec
Spokes - Sapim CX-ray
Tubes - conti race
Tires - New Michellin Power Competition New wheels got an old pair of Pro4's but plan to upgrade with to the same Power Race Copitetion that I have on the Enve's. Awesome tires
Pedals - Dura Ace 9000 +4mm
computer - Wahoo RFLKT+

Beautiful! If you get caught in heavy rain just make sure to re-grease those KCNC's!

Also...I like those new FL wheels from ican. I have been pretty happy with my ican 38's and 50's!
