Hi what's the total weight of the ultegra CAAD10 2012 bike? I can't find it on the Cannondale Website

    What size?

    The CAAD10 has a sophisticated, highly developed frame weighing just 1,274g (an all-carbon fork adding 420g)

    or

    CAAD10’s claimed 1,150-gram frame weight (56cm) with black anodized paint.
    Yellow is the new Black.
  • Here is the weight of the Ultegra gruppo: 2,441g or 5.38lb.

    Don't get too hung up on the total weight of an off the shelf bike. They normally come with cheaper wheels that aren't that light. If you're serious about wanting a really light bike the first thing you'll do it change them! The CAAD10 is a pretty light and very efficient frame, that's the important thing. It's a great base to build a really light bike on.

    I have a CAAD5 and there's one on Weight Weenies that's a shade over 6.5kg! Mine is Dura-Ace but it's a triple, with older 1600g Ultegra wheels and pedals it's about 7.7kg. It has the older fork with the alloy steerer, the CAAD10 all carbon fork is 250-300 lighter and that's just one part. With the all carbon fork and lighter wheels / tyres I could get it down to around 7 easily.

    My un-modified 54" is more or less bang on 8kg with Keo Blade Pedals, a bottle holder and Vittoria Pave tyres.

  • Thanks all, yep I will be replacing the wheels for something a little lighter. The finishing kit seems reasonable on the bike too. I originally just wanted to buy the frame but I can't seem to get good of one.

    Built up my 2013 race bike with a CAAD10 frameset from Westbrook Cycles.

    The weight that is generally quoted for a standard Ultegra bike, in a 56, is 7.8kgs.

    I have a 2012 version but have swapped the standard Aksium wheels for some carbon tubs, saving 400g's. I swapped the saddle to an Arione but everything else is standard. I really like the CAAD10, perfect race bike.
