So to start off, I never thought I'd ride a disc bike, let alone to a slightly 'custom' build a bike. But after recently selling my caad12 and deciding I cannot ride my Supersix through the British winter, I have set out to build a relatively cheap 'do it all' winter bike.

Complete starting 10.9kgs

This is what it looks like new:

This is what I'm getting:

Some immediate changes:
SLAM IT!
CLEAN IT!
50t instead of the std 46t
3T Rotundo 42cm alloy to replace the std bars
3T 140mm -17 stem (155g)
Mt Zoom Carbon seat post
Mt Zoom Skewers (38g)
Schwalbe Lugano 28c tires
eBay cork bartape (41g)

Required adds:
eBay carbon saddle with leather cover (125g)
Arundel Mandible copy carbon bottle cage (24g)
Looke Keo carbon Sagan etd (235g)
Fabric Tool keg bolts (7.3g)
Raceware Garmin Mount (13g)

Nice to have:
Carbon Wheels (Clincher)
Si Crank with spidering

My buddy got a 2018 CAAD-X SE last summer and has now made it a full-on one-bike. Swaps between WTB Ridlers and 28mm Conti GP's depending on his ride. Seems like a really solid bike.

Amazing what a few changes can do. All that’s left for now, is some carbon clinchers.

Nice one! I love this red colour. I have the same generation (2017 I think?) 105 version so it's a sort of dark forest green colour (official name was Anthracite but it's more green than that really).

I won't hijack your thread with my own photo's but it's all looking very similar! As jbaillie said above I have a set of road wheels and tyres (Ksyrium Disc + Challenge Paris Roubaix) and for gravel have the original CX2.0 wheels with some Challenge Gravel Grinders. I keep meaning to try the gravel grinders on the Ksyriums but they are the old 15c ones so i'm not hopeful that would work too well. I will upgrade to some light-weight (wide) clincher disc wheels eventually!

What tyres have you got on there now? My Gravel Grinders are the yellow/tan wall ones and they look great on these bikes, so you've made a good choice!

Looks great, white bartape and tan side walls will keep you busy during the winter though!

'Finished' for now, next summer I'll upgrade it to Sram Force 22. For this winter Tiagra is just fine

For now there is no target, this frame is ridiculously heavy, however I am watching a 2016 Supersix HiMod disc frame on eBay, which would make for fun project next summer if I could get it decently priced.

Going sub 9kgs would be great on this build, if I move to Sram Force 22 next summer, but I doubt that group is 600gr's lighter than the current Tiagra.
