Black CAAD10 1x

I just grabbed up a nice 2012 CAAD10 from theproscloset on ebay and have some plans for it. Last year I built up a 56cm CAAD9 with 1x10 and it was awesome. I rode it all week on ragbrai with the same gearing that I have planned for this one.
The Plan:
-First I'm going to strip everything from the frame and move it over to a bike for my dad.
-Then the plan is to outfit it with Force 1x11. Gearing will most likely be 48T up front on a BB30 Force CX1 crank and 11-28 or 11-32 out back. Most likely I'll stick with the WiFli RD but may end up with the clutch Force CX1 RD.
-Finally, I'm on the hunt for a nice finishing kit (Bar, Stem, Seatpost) to go with the all black look. Wheels, who knows!

Pic from eBay ad, the bike should be here by the end of the week.

I thought road race bikes looked funny with no double crank or front derailleur, but this is making me warm up to it. Looks goood!

What did you end up doing with the CAAD9, because it looks really good!

I like my *Thomson* stems, posts, and especially the bars but I know a lot of people lately that like the Zipp aluminum stuff.

Ended up selling the CAAD9 to fund a CX build. It was an awesome ride. Moved to 11sp and found this CAAD10 so it should be around for a while.

starting the build off with a rough in. Zipp carbon bars, thomson elite stem and post, SRAM red black version brakes, WiFli rear der, and shifters on.

Can't wait to see the final product. What is the plan to remove the derailleur bracket?

I'm super interested to see how your build looks when complete. I have a BH Ultralight frameset that has been sitting in a box for a couple years and building a lightweight 1x11 would be a good way to get it on the road. I've warmed up to the 1x over the last couple years on a MTB and then Cx so maybe road next

I would think that's a great idea; if you ever wanted to run as a double or sell the frame you don't limit your potential market..

I agree, but it just looks so much cleaner without like that 9.

Bike is in the shop getting the steerer cut and cabled up.

Finishing touches to make it "mine"

Rapha/Cinelli Black, pink tape
Light pink alloy bolts
Also, looking for something to add to the top tube white section. Small, subtle pattern that is easy removable and easy to apply.
