Here's my mostly stock Cannondale Evo Hi-Mod eTap. It was 6.5kg out of the box (so without pedals and cages) and now stands at 6.1kg all in without too much effort, there is potential to easily go much lighter.

The picture doesn't do that color justice though. Cannondale calls it Acid Red but in real life, it's like if someone dropped some fluorescent orange into a bucket of bright Ferrari red, it's incredibly luminous and more neon orange depending of the lighting but it looks much more like a standard red in photos...

If I were to buy another Evo, it would definitely be this one!

Someone here posted the weight of his, they were a little over 1500gr if I remember but that was with the included rim strips. I haven't checked mine as I don't have a super precise scale. Claimed weight I was told from someone at Cannondale is 1420-1460 grams without strips.

The stock skewers work great, smooth internal cam à la Shimano... but they weigh a ton! I'm pretty sure the hubs are made by Formula, no play, front one spins quite nicely, rear one has a little more drag, maybe the seals will have less drag after some mileage. Cannondale didn't want to share who manufactures the rims with me but, they told me they are designed by Cannondale, made to their specs in Taiwan (reading between the lines, I think I know who but can't tell for sure). They seem well built though, tension is good and the brake track has a fine micro texture that sounds a little like a more subtle Mavic Exalith 'bzzzzz'... Before I got the bike I thought it might be one of the first thing I'd change but now I'll start with them and see how they ride and handle braking.

One thing about the rims though, the internal cavity isn't deep so changing tires is hard, very tight. I never bothered carrying tire levers ever as I always could easily change tires by hand but I think I'll start carrying them now. After trying by hand a while and some french canadian swearing, I needed levers to take the stock tires off and I managed to put the Continentals on by hand, but my thumbs could still feel the effort two days later! :) Maybe using thinner tape like Stan's could help, or once the tires age a bit... They do give tires a nice width though. At under 100psi, the Conti GP4000 25's measure 27mm.

Damn that looks smooth. Can you get rid of the stem decals with some acetone?

Looks great. Do the decals come off the rims? I had issues with the wheel well on xentis rims - I switched to veloplugs to buy a little extra room but still needed levers.

Yeah it would look much better if the stem was all black, it looks painted but, perhaps I'll see if it can rubbed off.

I took off the small 'made in Taiwan' decals and it was a piece of cake, they didn't even left glue residue, I think they could be taken off easily yes, I was thinking about it but I think I'll keep them on until I try them... If they're keepers, I might take them off but if I decide to sell them eventually, maybe it's best if I leave them on.

Beautiful! It's nice to see that Cannondale is not all full of themselves and the frame does not have their name plastered all over it.

Extremely nice clean look, i like a lot the color, with a hollowgram would have been pure perfection but I aldready know it doesn't work very well with Etap groupset
