Made the decision to have this sanded down to bare carbon. As I am not the type of person to be able to do this (I lack the skill) I have sent it to KustomFlow here in the UK. I hope to have it back in the next 2 weeks.

In the mean time I've been on the look out for anything more that could save me a few grams and I happily stumbled upon some Zero Gravity OG-05 brakes in near mint condition.

As soon as the frame is back I will be getting this built up ASAP in readiness for spring.

Still waiting for this to come back to me. I am now considering throwing etap on here. I have replaced the chinese carbon bars with some 3T Rotundo alloy bars and will be using a 3T Arx II stem as it comes up a bit longer than the kalloy. I have dipped into a new carbon Fizik saddle as well. With all the changes Im now thinking I'll be closer to 5.7kgs, but I have come to terms with the slightly more porky weight, as I think its going to look good. I am expecting the frame to be completed at the end of the forthcoming week, so hopefully have it back within the next 2 weeks. I will have a graphics mock up tomorrow so will share that once received.

How much are they charging to strip the paint and clear coat it? Just curious in case I ever get the urge to undertake something similar again. Any idea on approx weight the clear coat will add?

I assume this is just going to be hung on the wall to look at once done? 8)

Living in the UK, yes, it'll probably hang for 10/11 months of the year, but on those few and far between summer days, it'll get a good thrashing, along with a July trip to the TDF and a December trip to South Africa.

Can't wait to see it all together. Most Cannondale paint schemes are ugly, so this will be a treat.

Etap has been ordered, will obviously gain some weight now, but I got a great deal and couldn't really turn it down.

I have also been promised a weight from the paint shop post sanding, pre-clear coat, so will be interesting to see what the loss was VS the original paint job and then also what the clear coat adds. I will hopefully have some pics in the coming days of the new finish.

I would love to benpostingmprogress pics but as I don’t have the frame and it’s being done by a professional painter, I don’t think progress pics are at the top of his list. I will hopefully have some to share a bit later today
