CAAD10 Black

Finally finished the build of my summer bike. I'd considered buying off the peg with Canyon's CF SLX and Scott's Addict 10 high on the list of contenders but I got offered this frameset at a silly price so I went for another CAAD. I am riding the Fred Whitton this year and doing a 7 day Route des Grandes Alpes trip later so this bike was built with those two events in mind.

Currently tipping the scales a tad over 7.5Kg.

Frameset: Cannondale CAAD10 Anodised/Carbon Fork
Groupset: Shimano Ultegra 6800 (11-32)
Chainset: FSA SL-K Pro Carbon 170mm
Brakes: Shimano Ultegra 6800
Pedals: Ultegra 6800 Carbon
Wheelset: Shimano Dura Ace 9000 C24 clinchers
Tyres: GP4000s
Cables: Jagwire Racer
Seat: Fizik Arione VS
Seatpost: Ritchey WCS
Stem: Ritchey WCS (90 mm)
Bars: Ritchey WCS (420 mm)

  • That's a nice looking bike, I have the CAAD9 and I love it, I bet the CAAD10 is better though :) That gearing should get you up any gradient (even a wall if you try hard enough), I hear good things about the 6800 groupset too, enjoy your new toy

    CAAD 10 's have internal cable routing now do they? Nice looking beastie!
  • I had a early black anodised CAAD10 and sold it for a Cervelo R3. Nearly tempted to build another as they are such a great bike. I see the latest Ultegra version has a nice black/ dark FSA chainset.
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
  • Rear brake cable is internal.

    Remember and cover the hole in behind the front mech.

    Very nice though, I haven't weighed mine yet.

    Have got both, the only real difference is the CAAD10 is a smidge lighter in both frame and fork. Ride character is the same.
