I don't know what it is about blacked out bikes, but they're the best in my eyes.

CWDK: Nice bike, but are you sure about the weight? 6,8 kg with Enve wheels SRAM Red and Hollowgrams seems heavy, unless your handlebar is made of lead :?: :lol:
Why does Shimano paint their groupsets the way they do? If i wanted fifty shades of grey - I'd buy the book.

Stein: well, the 6.8kg is with 1500g training wheels and Force casette. The pictured setup with enve 45's and Red '12 casette should be lighter. But the bars are rather heavy Ritchey aluminium :) and seatpost is 330mm. So plenty of places to save grams in the future

That is very nice. Where did you come across the frame?
Wish my Caad4Aero had this colourway :cry: .

Ebay, a guy from Austin, Texas shipped it to the Netherlands...
I like your CAAD4 Aero as well. Makes me think I need a disc and a threespoke...

Who said CAAD's were just for crits ??!!


My TT setup from last year. Comfortable, however my position on the bike was akin to a yacht with its mainsail out :lol:

New cockpit and other bits (pedals, 5mm cone spacer, SI expander plug, tuned DA sti's)
The fork was sanded partially which saved an incredible 32 grams :unbelievable:

When the chain/casette are worn, I'll put some praxis rings on as well.
I'm hoping it will weigh about 6.4kg with tubs, will have to get it weighed soon.

My relatively new to me CAAD10 and my brand new to me wheels after a quick 20 mile test ride this afternoon. This is by far the nicest bike I've ever had and I am super stoked on it. Now I just need to do it justice and ride the damn thing more.

It is definitely not built up as a real weight weenie but I've gotten a lot of inspiration from the board. Not completely sure on the final weight as I've changed a few things since I last weighed it, but I would guess about 16.2 lbs. Future upgrades include the handlebars that are too big (and over 300gr), seatpost (almost 300gr), and black chainrings just to look cool.
