Here's my '08 CAAD9. It started off as a Tiagra double groupo.

Here's the list:

Frame: CAAD9 54 cm
Fork: EASTON SLX Carbon Stem: Cannondale C4 120mm -/+ 10 deg w/ Ti bolts
Seatpost clamp: Woodman DEATHGRIP w/ Ti bolt
Headset: FSA Orbit CF Ceramic
Shifters: Sram Force
Rear derailleur: Sram Force
Front derailleur: Sram Force
Brakes: Sram force
Seatpost: EASTON EC90 ZERO w/ Ti bolts
Saddle: Prologo carbon c130
Crankset: SRAM Force 172.5mm 39/53 w/KCNC ti bolts
BB: SRAM GXP/BlackBox Ceramic
Cassette: Shimano Dura Ace CS-7900 11-23
Chain: KMC X10sl
Cables and housing: Yokozuma
Skewer: Token Ti skewers
Bottle cages: BONTRAGER Race XXX Lite Carbon w/ Ti bolts
Computer: catyeye strada wired
Bar tape: Fizik Microtex Handlebar
Tires: Michelin Krylion Carbon

Pedals: Speedplay Zero Chrome Moly
Wheelset: EASTON EA90 SLX

Right now, it weighs in at 15.4lbs I'd like to upgrade the pedals and a few other bits as $$ allows to get it sub 15lbs.

Any suggestions appreciated, Thanks for looking!!

lovely bike, i like all the Easton parts. What kind of handlebar and stem is on your bike?

Thank you! :beerchug:
The handle bar is a 2011 Easton EC90 SLX size 40. The stem is the only piece besides the frame I haven't upgraded. It's a Cannondale C4 & weighed in at 130ish g w/stock hardware, so I ordeded ti bolts to shave a few grams. I'd love to have the new Easton EC90 SL stem, but I am having a hard time justifying $180 for 12g difference. :)
