New Bike Day!!
Thursday was "new bike day" for me. Went and picked up my new road bike. It's a 2007 Cannondale CAAD8. Super smooth ride. I had ridden a Trek in the same price range, and a Cannondale CAAD9 priced slightly higher. In the end, the Cannondale Lifetime frame warrenty, sleek black paint, and killer price settled me on the CAAD8. Promptly replaced the arrowhead of a stock seat (Selle San Marco Ponza) with the Brooks B17 Imperial I am testing.
I was a tad worried about the low spoke count, and the driveside radial lacing on the rear. But we will see how they hold up. The Shimano wheelset has a pretty good v section to it. It might hold up fine.
