CAAD10 New project!

CAAD10 New project!

Postby macca33 » Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:25 pm

I managed to source a very cheap 2012 CAAD10 Team frameset and plan to use it as my 'work' bike which will also double as my climbing bike for the steep stuff!

I'm going to build it up with my DA7800 groupset - Compact FSA Gossamer crankset, FSA carbon seatpost, Cannondale bars/stem, Selle Italia Flite saddle and my older Fulcrum R1s.

I'll update as I progress and am hoping to have the seatpost, stem and BB30 BB kit arrive next week.

We'll see how it turns out.

Cheers

Hey macca build is looking great! Stuck with the green theme i see! Are you going to be holding onto the 7800 crankset?

Looking forward to seeing this one built!

Got it finished last night and managed a very short test ride this arvo - very happy with the result - smooth as butter!

Tomorrow I'll give it a run in anger.

Thanks mate - not an EVO which is the dream rig - but more than enough for my skillset.


Well, here they are - almost a Pigeon Pair!

First angry ride of the Team edition this morning and it was a fiery birth, as the local bunch smashed me....until I was unceremoniously dropped...d'oh! Very happy and after a couple of minor post-ride tweaks, it is running superbly.

Cheers mate - thanks, I'm happy with them both.

Although, I had a crankarm failure with the FSA SL-K Light crank today - the pedal nut has come loose within the carbon crankarm, which is a non-repairable fault. Not very happy Jan!

My LBS gave me a pair of BB30-24mm adapters which were plug and play, so I fitted the DA7800 crankset and rode it in the crit today - MUCH better performing crankset/chainrings than the FSA anyway, so I'll leave it fitted.

cheers

Thanks mate. On the Team colour frame, they are white Bontrager ones and on the Berzerker frame, they are Cannondale C-Cages.

cheers.

Ah yes. FSA. They make Crank Bros look good. Good choice on ditching them.

I had some of their cranks in my MTB. BB would last about 4 months, and got sick of replacing them. While the spindle was nominally 24mm it was out by enough that you couldn't fit them a the way though any other manufacturers 24mm external BB.

I remember being warned by a bike shop years before. Sold them on ebay for about twenty bucks so I think their reputation was known. :lol:

Nice looking CAAD10s Macca.

Cheers
