Evening Weenies

Ok, I know, Caad9s are not unknown to this forum. I have gone through all the caad9 threads in the introduction section. Despite the numerous caad9s on the forum, I didnt found any that I thougth was real hot except for member airsoft white caad9, Fail's black caad9 and 2002saecoreplica's one. This will be my contribution to this cummunity under the section dedicated racing/functionnal yet "light" bike. I cant wait to ride it, maybe I'll be able to do so in a few..... months... crappy winter weather.

here's a short summary of how I ended up buying a caad9 so soon after buying a velocite slene.

After having started building my Velocite Selene, I realized I needed to finally buy what I really wanted for long: a caad9 with an hollowgram crankset, built into a decent light bike. So I broke the bank and spent the cash, now, bike related expenses are over.... at least ....uuggghh for.... arrrgg.... now :P

The Selene came in at a heavy weight because of the BB adapter and the SRM. So it will be my training and B-race bike. The build is not done yet because I am waiting for some sram stuff, I'll update when I get it.

The caad9 will be my nice, "light" bike, my target weight was 7000g without pedals. I'll use it for A races and long ride without the use of a powermeter. The cannondale frameset was slightly used but in very nice shape, thanks to a local cannondale head for helping sourcing it.

Also, special thanks to Phallenthoul who helped with a lot of parts at a great price, great seller, I would never hesitate to buy from him again.

The fun part: PICS

The build has nothing spectacular. I tried to pay attention to details and I picked components one by one according to my needs. I expect to drop arround 50g with the planned upgrades/tuning. I could easily go sub 6.8 if I'd changed the brakes for KCNC ones and the porky fork for an Alpha Q one. ANY COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS WELCOMED

Hope you like

Very nice. Thomson MP is lighter than I thought! Was it cut?

Interested to see what you do with the expander! The cap bit on mine is 21g.

I will use look keo 2 max pedals, the weight does not include them.

The Si expander and cap weights 48g!!!! Ultrastar and tune cap should come arround 12-13g. I'd love to get the build under 6.8kg without pedals

@choiboi

my masterpiece weighted in at 192g uncut. I then cut about 8 cm and saved 31g, the Ti bolts kit would save another 7 g

Very cool bike :thumbup: .

I like it better with the Mavics, to bad they're the heavy option. I think an Enve/Endge fork would look nice, and the matt finish will match your frame plus the added bonus of the huge weight savings.

yup, I thougth about the enve fork but is expensive. I was looking at alpha q fork but they seem rare... Maybe if I get some spare $ someday I will buy an edge 2.0 fork.

The handbuilt wheels look more classic. They are perfect for racing and training! Plus they are solid.

Looks dope with the carbones.
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

Soo stealth! 8) Very nice and classy build!

What's your saddle height (center bb - top of saddle)? I'm doubting between a 52 or 54 C'dale and this could help me to get a reference. Thanks!
