What does your bike weight? post a pic and the weight

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My CAAD10 weighs in at 18.64lbs with 105 on it.

Just swapping to SRAM Red and a Hollowgram SISL2 drops almost a full 2lbs out of my bike. Let alone tackling the boat anchors of wheels. Could easily shave 2lbs out of those and another pound+ out of the seat/post/bar combo.

I'd also question your 290G nude fork weight. mine with paint is 444 with just the crown race on it.


With a lot of tuning of parts and time you could probably get sub 13 with a CAAD10 without much effort. especially with the raw/polished version.

I had an S-Works E5 which is a comparable frame weight wise. I had it in the low to mid 14's if I recall and there was room to take more off if I wanted to.

edit: as a matter of fact:

S-works/Lightning is about the same as the original SISL. A carbon spider would save ~ 5gms. The graphics were marked up so I just sanded them off and recleared. Couldn't complain for $150. SISL2 would set me back a bit more than that.

Didn't realize that the pic of the crank was from before I tuned the spider. It's 10gms lighter now. still 'round 5gms heavier than the Carbon S-works one.

Sorry, I just shot that number out there. Actual weight is 385g for the uncut fork.

That's more in line with what cannondale says.

I believe when I look back, mine was 444 with expander plug installed and crown race.... so closer to 400-410 or so including the paint.

Thing is, the only thing average on this bike are the cables. Even the housings are aluminum core. Someone on the WW forum stripped down and weighed a 50cm polished silver Caad10. Frame was 1190gms, uncut fork 402. 157gms more than my frame/fork. Soul wheels are 1295gms, listed and actual. Excess weight is wherever you find it. My tires/tubes are ~150gms lighter than say a set of Conti 4000s and race 28s. My Xglide cassette is nearly 100gms lighter than an Ultegra or Force one, and so on. I see bikes with claimed weights of 14,15,16,17lbs….and say "no way"

Impossible to get the whole bike and be able to read the scale.

I do love seeing carbon bikes with similar drivetrains to my CAAD10 that weigh more....

just makes me feel good about the financial decision of buying the CAAD v. a Fuji etc from Performance.

a similarly-sized and vintage 105-spec caad10 doesnt weight that much different from the fuji

and if it wasnt obviously by the looks, this fuji was built with a different intent in mind (aero, stiffness) than others in its line (e.g. altamira) or those from competing brands

apples to oranges. but if the oranges let you feel better about yourself ...

Scott CR1 Pro 2012 - 15.9lbs with pedals, cages, garmin mount and sensor.



I built it up from the frame set with SRAM Rival, FSA carbon chainset with Praxis Works rings, Dura Ace C24 wheels. It has fairly heavy Zipp seatpost and bars so could probably go sub 7kg fairly easily.

I did not snap a picture of the scale, but at the Performance Bike Shop in Winter Park Fl with the mechanics there - this 1990-91 steel frame/fork weighed in at 19.1Lbs without the bag, cages or pedals. I since put a carbon FSA SLK crankset on it but have not been able to weigh it again.

Well, that was somewhat impolite. There is a LOT more to a bike than what the weight is, and there is a ton of heavy crap, pardon the pun, on this bike. I’ll be swapping out parts that I don’t like as I have the time and money and most likely this bike will end up in the 15 pound range.

And actually when I was shopping this time around I was targeting CAAD 10’s and Allez E5’s. Modern aluminum frames do weigh on par with a lot of carbon frames, and both of those frames are really good. I wasn’t able to find either though locally for anywhere near what the Fuji was. I got an incredible deal on a close out bike that was about $500 to $600 less than the similarly spec’ed CAAD10. I also have always had a thing for the SST frames – I just think they’re dead sexy.

I'm not a huge fan of black bikes, but the graphics on the Fuji look really sharp.

With regards to the alu vs. carbon thing, I'd take a carbon frame over aluminum at the same weight, and even at a fair penalty over aluminum. I mean, if it was 16lb aluminum or 18lb carbon, gimme the carbon.

sorry if it seemed impolite. not my intent at all... when I bought my CAAD10 i was basing it off cost and feel of the bike. the SST was a comparable, but I thought it felt heavier (the good ole lift test)... so I'm glad to see that my intuition was right. it was heavier. I was looking for best bang for my buck with a light, durable frame, and mid-level components. I wound up with the CAAD after riding a ton of different bikes at different shops and came to the conclusion that it met both what I wanted to spend, and what I expected as far as quality etc.

I got mine on closeout for about 40% off it's MSRP.

The altamira was third on my list behind an alloy synapse.

No worries - I really wasn't too upset about it (hence the smiley face).

The Fuji has some heavier OEM components on it probably - frame weight is about the same I think. OEM parts are usually crap on most bikes and I'll end up replacing most of it anyway. I just focused on getting a 105 or better level bike that had a great riding frame and didn't worry too much about weight. When I buy a complete bike for me initial complete weight is something like 4th or 5th on level of importance for the decision.

Right around 15lbs as-is on my build. This is a truly terrible picture though.
