    Matching 7800 crankset would set this bike up nicely.
    Why does it seem like the seat post is crooked? Curvy setback?

    Seriously tho... This is one of my favorite colors C-dale put out for the CAAD10.

    Thats the day I pulled it out of the box. 14" of snow and -5. I tried to ride it around the shop. Potential is going to have to be good enough. Only change I'm doing is the seat and seatpost position.

    The frame actually has the pink t-mobile bands, this latest photo shows it better,

    It has 9000 brakes, FD and compact cranks, RD and shifters are 7900, the wheelsets she uses are RZR's and the C35's for wet days

    Nice bike for your wife, certainly much nicer than my wife's bike, and not to be rude, but not hot for the purposes of this thread.

    Other than the pedals, & the cross brakes, I dont see any other flaws IMO.
    Theres many other bike that are considered hot that have more demerits than this one.

    I gave him a break on those 2 cause its his wifes bike.
    When a members wifes bike in nicer than mine, I have no other choice but to give it a hot.

    Uh...What's wrong with cross brakes? Is it a silly, artificial aesthetic issue?

    In case no one pointed it out, this is a silly aesthetic thread.

    There's nothing wrong with cross brakes, on a cross bike or cross ride. But, they're not hot on a road racing bike. Nor is a stack of spacers, a stem flipped positive or platform pedals.

    Not hot.

    It would get lot's of love in the C&V community. But, within this thread, not hot.

    Ah ha! So aesthetically they're "allowed," on gravel grinder/ cross bikes....

    Is there an aesthetic codex defined for the purpose of this thread yet?

    They become sort of "novelty" really quick.
    I used them for all of 1 week/3 days before I was comfortable enough with the brifters when I was a noob coming off a MTB.

    They're there for a sense of confidence, when commuting,or in traffic.
    I installed a pair for my uncle whos coiming off a hybrid, its more familiar feeling.
