    Thanks.
    I've seen 10-5's going for $1100-1300 on closeout.
    Don't know about 4's though, but it can't be but a couple hundred more.

    That would be a good price. On another note: If you can find an '11 CAAD-4, it is actually a better bike as it comes with the force crankset. Wher as, the '12 has a rival crank. The '11 is also available in a nice black and white color scheme.

    How do you set up your stem and why? I thought it might be interesting to hear this from some CAAD peeps.

    As for me, I slam my stem. I like to have an aggressive position. It rotates my hips forward and gives me better power transfer to the pedals.

    Nice job on the stem.

    What size spacer is that? 15mm?
    And can we see a pic of the cap?

    Size: I never measured (and don't have a metric ruler) but I believe it's 15mm. It is a Cane Creek, the one that came stock was huge and had to go. S for the stem cap: I like the one Cannondale used. It has the SI/System integration branding and looks cool.

    Thanks guys for the pricing help!

    Any links to 2011 CAAD10 4 and 5 color schemes?

    Also any weight difference between the 2011 and 2012?

    [edit] Also what would be considered a good price on a slightly used (less than 300 miles) 2010 CAAD9-5, he wants $850.

    Thanks again.

    Here are the two color schemes for the 2011 10-4.

    As for the weight: shouldn't be any appreciable idfference.

    Here is a link to Nytro, they still have new 2011's. You can check out the specs:

    http://www.nytro.com/index.cfm/product/?ProductID=5930

    Not to sure about the used prices. Try checking ebay and craigs list.

    I got my 2012 10-5 for... a little less than 1300. Less than I thought I'd have to pay for sure.

    0100: There are too many variables to consider on what a good price would be. Does the weather suck in the winter where you live? Plus, a lot of shops will throw in heavy discounts on things like pedals, shoes, and other accessories if you're buying a bike.

    Make sure you test ride a couple of other bikes in the same price range, which will show you what a good deal the CAAD is in the grand scheme of things.

    Wow.

    I didn't expect CAAD10s to drop in value that quick.
    They are actually even cheaper now than CAAD9's were.
    I guess it must be the substantial savings in labor costs.

    That's a great price on a 'just broken' in CAAD9-5!
    BUT, only get it if you actually like it.
    Test a CAAD10. You might like it more.
    Granted, it's about 50% more than the CAAD9,
    but, you'll be happier if you prefer it.
    Good luck in your hunt!

    I found a few for $1,499.
    That Force crankset looks PERFECT on with that black/white theme.
    The only thing the '12 has on the '11 IMO is the "Raw" Option.
    I'd say the 2011 would be preferable to the 2012
    with the '12 going Rival (S500?) for the crank.

    Yeah I am in MA just north of boston so we have bad winters but it's been 50's 60's so far. Not helping with prices I am sure, plus I would really like to start the snowboard season. lol It will get bad soon though. I would love to get a -5 for around $1100. After xmas I will start going around to the LBS's.

    Might as well wait until late January/early February when the windows of the LBS are iced-up.
    BEST deals then.

    Good advice! I think I will just do some test riding to see what CAAD I like, before the snow comes. Also to figure out what size frame I should go with.

    Still confused on what size would be good for me.

    The cc fit calculator puts me at this.

    The Competitive Fit (cm)
    -------------------------------------------
    Seat tube range c-c: 52.6 - 53.1
    Seat tube range c-t: 54.3 - 54.8
    Top tube length: 53.8 - 54.2

    The 54 with a 54.5 TT is a tad too big and the 52 with a 53.5 TT is a tad too small.

    I am 5'8" 150 lbs with a 32 measured inseam.

    I won't be riding long distances, mostly shorter sprint interval type training. That said, once a week I will probably go for a long ride.

    I am thinking the 52 would be the right size for me, but really not sure.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Anyone about my size, what do you ride?

    Well, despite you guys probably being Bahstahn fans,
    I'll still like you regardless. The CAAD is the neutralizing factor!

    Anyone about my size, what do you ride?
    I`m 5'9'' 155lbs with a 30 in. inseam and I test rode both a 52 and a 54 black Caad 10, the 54 had me streached out to much. I guess I could have rode either one but the 52 fit me better.So I had them order me a white 52, it seems just right. I would ride em for yourself though if you can just to make sure.
