CAAD9 Full Build List by deliciouscaek, on Flickr
My goal with this build was 7Kg and I've now reached that. I _think_ I am just about done with this build - I am past the point of diminishing returns. I could go for a set of carbon bars which would save around 60 grams, new pedals which would save about the same. New brakes would drop another 50 grams on top so could get it down to below 6.8kg but these 3 items would cost in the region of £700 and I would rather start a new project based around a different frame later this year.
There's a few more shots on Flickr with how the build progressed over time.
I love what you did with the CAAD9. I am a fan of the C-dales, as are a lot of others on the boards.
Keep us updated!

Welcome to the forum.
I'm from your part of the world until recently?
Warminster. (the land of chalk and flint)
Nice bike BTW, I had a BB30 CAAD9 last year and loved it?
Wish I never sold it TBH?

Hi Rob, yes not far from me at all. I'm actually heading there on Sunday, I'll be taking photos at the Endura Lionheart sportive at Longleat. Probably perched on a hill in the rain all day, knowing my luck
I really like this colour scheme as well but I want to know if the logo's are metallic? I saw one of these baby's for sale (also non bb30) and am really considering picking it up as a spare.
I'm almost where you are weightwise, just need to swap the fork.

Thanks, yes the Cannondale logos in red are metallic with a silver flake so it looks lovely in the sunshine (when we get any)

Thanks. No she's not a Pyrenees, she's a Golden Retriever. I couldn't cope with anything bigger than that!

Go for it, I have spent ages going looking at other people's bikes for inspiration

Thank you, Sir

It was my first build, it was changed pretty soon after the first set of photos were taken when I realised what I'd done
