how big is the difference between c3 and c1 stuff?
Time to see what gatorskins are all about My phone isn't too bad at close up shots
C3 stem = 148g c1 stem 128g
c3 seatpost = 248 c1 seatpost 212g
c3 bars = 325g = c1 bar = 244
Total savings = 148g (almost 1/3rd a LB)
Granted this is not alot of weight but if one was looking to drop weight from something other then wheels I would probably remove that C3 bar first and replace it with something like Zipp SL Carbon Handlebar(170g) which alone is the same weight savings to all the C1 stuff above.
But after looking at some parts, I think I am going to go with 3T Rontundo pro bars, ARX II Stealth stem, and their IONIC 25setback seat post. Seems like the cost/weight ratio is spot on with those parts. and being alloy I don't mind buying them used

Anyone have 25 Gatorskins on an Ultegra bike? Wondering about clearance
Just bought a Caad 10 black inc. I'm rolling 25mm gatorskins no prob.
Finally finished the build of my wife's new to her Caad 9, Athena 11s. First ride this morning, 35 miles. She likes it -thankfully.
Very cool, h2o
I'm thinking about a used CAAD frame to build up. Do any of your experts know what year/model this is:
Are their certain generations of CAAD to avoid? Should I be overly concerned with getting an older used frame that it might fail?
I'm hoping to upgrade my frame set for around $500 so newer CAAD 10 probably not going to be in my budget. Not racing. I ride a few times a week usually 20-30 minute spirited rides with some decent climbing. I'm looking at all options now. I'm generally a fan of older steel frames but the CAAD bikes are the one alum bike that I truly love aesthetically
