I have 2011 CAAD 8 105.

I recently tried to lose some weight of the bike, so I am doing some research on weight of each parts of my bikes.

I could find most of the parts but I could not find the weight of CAAD 8 frame.

I could find some old posts about weight of the frame of CAAD8, but I heard that "Old" CAAD 8 is different from "New" CAAD 8.

Is it true that "Old" CAAD 8 frame is lighter than "New" CAAD 8 frame?

If it is different, does anyone know the weight of the frame of "New" CAAD 8

Thank you!

I don't know the specific numbers, but the two frames will be a little different. The newer CAAD8 has some updates taken from the CAAD10. I doubt anyone's going to know your frame weight, since you haven't listed the size. :P

The old CAAD8 around 2006 is a proper Made-in-USA race frame and can come in at around 1200g-1300g. The new CAAD8 2010 - onwards is a cheaper entry level frame with sportive/gran fondo geometry. Its weight is probably 1500g+
