So I have a Cannondale CAAD 8 optima and looking to make this killer light. I am starting with the crank and bottom bracket. I am obsessed with getting a 1x set up. Anyone have suggestions on the best way to go on this ?

Oh and welcome to the group LOL. It's possible to get this under 6K but we do need to see what your working with before we can give any help

The CAAD 8 and the CAAD Optimo are two different bikes.

No they are not. Caad 7,8, and 9 all used the optimo aluminum from Alcoa here in the states. Here is an older caad 8 optimo USA.
