    Awesome thanks for the help!

    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?
    I am 5'10", and I went with a 54cm CAAD10. I replaced the oem stem with a 120mm stem which gives a very comfortable position. I race and prefer a more aggressive position.

    The 52cm might be good for you. The inseam is very important when considering what size to get. A good bike shop can do a bike fit for you. Granted, you may pay more in a bike shop as opposed to ordering online. However, you want the bike to be right for you, so paying a little more is worthwhile in that sense.

    Good luck!

    Let me know what size & brand that conical spacer is. I'm diggin' it. (5mm? 10mm?)
    When you get a chance, can you take some nice pics of the stem set-up and post them?

    Hard for me to decide which looks better:





    There's a blue one for sale about 30 minutes from where I live, but I'm still a student and just home at the moment for Winter Break. Not sure if the $850 is justifiable, haha. I'd love to have one by next summer for riding, though. I think the gray looks really good, but I'm not a fan of white bar tape/saddle as much as I am black, and I don't think black looks good on gray. : \ Decisions, decisions...

    Bro, that CAAD9-5 is a STEAL for $850.! Are you kidding me?
    If I had the money, I'd get one! But, I'd go with the Gray one
    (you can always change bar tape for $20. and black would be awesome on there).

    You better jump on that CAAD9-5 or save up another $500. for a CAAD10-5
    (if you can find one that cheap anymore because they will be going up next year big time).

    Yeah, now that I reconsider, black on gray wouldn't look all that bad. Thanks for the insight! There are a lot of really good deals out there, it seems. (This one's still up, and also how would you like to drive 4 hours from your house for this?)

    I own a gray one exactly like your picture.

    In the flesh, it looks far better with white tape / saddle. I tried black, and it looked drab.

    I wouldn't look at the CL ad CAAD9.
    The CAAD9-4 on ebay is the winner.
    I'd take that even over a new CAAD9-5.
    Force Crank/Rival Group, BBQ Frame.
    Plus a carbon Control Tech handlebar?
    What's left to do to that bike but ride it?

    They came in at a hair of 17lbs stock.
    That bike is probably in the high 16lb range.
    I spend $2500. getting my CAAD9 in the mid-16lb range. Do the math.
    That one though I thing is going to sell for more than $1,000.
    There's just too much love for the CAAD9-4 out there.
    The fork is a 400g Slice Premium (full carbon).
    That bike has win all over it.

    the only caad9s that come close to 17lb stock, if that, are the caad9-1s.

    Went for a great ride today. You have to love the warm Florida weather down here. It just felt fitting to take another pic of my Caad, even with the crappy cell phone pic.

    I know you're quoting, but that's a little hard to believe, even on a tiny frame. Is the CAAD9 frame really lighter than the CAAD 10 frame? I have doubts...

    Why is it hard to believe? My Dura-Ace equipped CAAD9 is 16.57lbs right now.
    The difference between a CAAD9 and a CAAD10 is only 1/4lb to 1/2lb (depending on size).

    CAAD9 56cm frame: 1280g
    CAAD10 56cm frame: 1150g

    It's hard to believe because my CAAD 10 5 (58cm) w/105 pedals, a bottle cage, and a sending unit and mount for a cheap computer (computer not in the mount) weighs 19.57 lbs. I had my LBS weigh it while I watched.

    I'm 6'2" with a 33' inseam. I wonder if I could ride a 56? I currently have a 58 Synapse and 58 Madone BUT....

    REI (I know, I know) has taken a CAAD 10 frame and built it up with 105 components and Easton wheels and its $1,100. Seems too good to be true but it was a replacement frame someone didn't want. Just don't know if I can do a 56.

    Well, you have to compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges. Besides frames, there are groupsets to consider (full 105 is about a pound heavier than Dura Ace. You have mixed 105 which is going to be even heavier than full 105). Wheelsets, tires, saddle, bars and even skewers make big differences.

    My CAAD9 fully loaded (cages, computer, micro pump,
    empty bottles, loaded Lezyne Micro Caddy
    ) is 18.5lbs.

    105 seems to be 2,481g.
    Dura-Ace 7900 is 2087g.
    That alone is worth 394g or .86 lbs.

    [You'll find a lot of sub-16lbs CAAD9's with some as low as 13lbs @ WW.]

    I'm 5'9" with a 31.5" inseam. I ride a 56. I like being in a little aggressive position. 54 was too tight for me. 58 too big. 56 was jusssst right.

    I think 56 is the lowest you can go and you can always experiment with stem lengths to accommodate your particular dimensions. Plus, not all 58's are the same. It really is a matter of you getting fitted at an LBS (I don't know if REI has trained sales personnel for that).

    105 according to the Total Cycling chart is 2624. Rival is 2244, then minus the weight of the Rival crank from the Force. The Rival CAAD has a pretty decent drop in weight over the 105 model.
