    I finally got my new bike

    Just picked it up tonight and with some help of reading these forums I decided to opt for the Deep V's. This is my first roadbike and I am very excited to get out on it. I consider this my gateway to getting fit and losing some weight. Don't mind the clunky time mtb platforms I just had those on while they were setting me up at the bike shop tonight.

    Nice bike, that baby should last you quit a while. Those wheels look pretty stout too. Good luck and have fun riding.

    Excellent choice on bike and wheels. Cannondales are super bikes. I have owned several; once my lugged steel fetish is satisfied, I hope to have another Cannondale hanging from my rafters.

    Do not worry about apologizing for the pedals, no one in this forum is uptight enough to care. What works for you is what is best for you. Let the other weight weenies in the other forums worry about cosmetics and gram counting. Ride on.

    Precisely. That's an awesome looking ride!

    I just got a new bike and I put my (at least) 10 year old, scratched up M545 SPD pedals on it. You like what you like; Anyone who says otherwise can jump in a lake.

    how big is that frame? the bike looks like t was stretched from hanging on the rafters for too long or something.

    I am actually seriously considering that exact bike.
    How do you like it, ride quality-/stiffness-/handling-wise?

    Not sure what the angle on the stem is but it is steep, I will find out.


    The Frame is a 63cm. As far as the ride quality, I have only ridden it around the block and it wasn't even that bike it was a demo that I rode, Very stiff bb though. Not to sure what to expect because it is my first roadbike. "feels very light compared to my 45lb Rocky Mountain mtb haha"

    Beautiful bike. Considering this is a Clyde forum, do you know what the weight rating is of that bike? I would love to have a bike like that one day.

    on their website they list it as 18.38 lbs, although one may assume that figure applies to the 52-ish cm one.

    Very nice, went with the 2008 R5. I looked at that before I decided to stick with the 2007 model. You are going to love the feel of the ride on that bike, very smooth and quick. What kind of tires did you go with? I can't tell in the pic. Have you tried to remove them yet????? I know when I got my new wheels after I bought my bike, I put Michelin Krylions on and they are a ***** to put on the Deep V's, so after I had one damage by debris, I moved back to the Maxxis Fuse that came with the bike. Much easier to get on and off and so far I really like them. No flats and grip the road pretty. I have not gone down the bridge with them yet, so will see how they feel at speed soon, Saturday if the weather is good.

    I've mentioned this before and I will mention it again... This is the smoothest riding aluminium frame you will ever find. The BB is stiff and when you push the pedals it just wants to rocket out from under you. As far as weight goes, don't have a clue, but I am 295 and I ride a 56cm. Frame are typically a non-issue, it the wheels. On a side not, my bike completely for a ride is 20.35 lbs. It looks like you got a triple, I got the compact double and I like it. I don't have mountains so did not need the triple, but do cross bridges on occasion.

    Have fun.

    I like it, it's very nice. You'll look like a silver streak cruising on by.

    Anyone familiar with that stem or care to guess at the angle? I ask because I'd like to get dirty lil hands on one. Lp

    Nice looking bike with a great choice on the wheels. Looks like you have a high spoke count, another good choice. I ride the same wheels with a 40-spoke rear, and it has saved me when a hole pops up out of nowhere. I hope you really enjoy you new bike!
