    Has to be 63cm. I would know because I have one the same size. I've had mine for a little over a year, and I love it.

    Thank you all. To fishymamba (and a nod to sixate ), it is a 63cm frame, I am 6'4" with a 37.5" cycling inseam, that was one of things that pushed me to Cannondale, was that they still do bikes for us tall geeks. Seriously a lot of brands slap the L sticker on 57cm frames. I also the crankset is also longer than standard, it is a 180mm crankset, thank you to Campy for not overlooking us tall geeks as well.

    Is this your first bike with 180mm cranks? What do you think of them. I have about the same cycling inseam but I am a bit shorter. I also ride a 63 cm Cannondale. I occaisonally will put a pedal into the pavement in a hard turn with 175mm cranks. Do you have much of that issue with the longer cranks? I've thought about longer cranks but never convinced myself that the change would be worth it.

    I've got a 34in inseam and have 180mm c-record cranks on one of my bikes. They feel a touch long and I have experianced pedal strike but if I "needed" 180s I would get them.

    I have had them for about 6 months, had 175's prior. Honestly I am not sure I can tell the difference in quantifiable terms. As far as pedal strikes, I don't race, and I have been riding for a long time, so I am paranoid about that already so I am careful about avoiding them.

    it's kinda hard to believe that a 54cm frame with cannondale stem/post and the shimano wheelset comes out to be 17lbs.

    is that without pedals and cages?

    I would assume it is without cages & pedals (I've never known a magazine to weigh a
    bike with either and if they have included the pedals, they'd list the specific pedals used).
    A quick google search will find that weight range in personal reviews. CAAD10 4's are in
    the low 17lb range and a CAAD9 frame is only 100g more than a CAAD10.

    The CAAD9-4's wheels + crankset + bar alone are 115g lighter than the CAAD10-4's.
    That's 1/4lb right there. The trend among manufacturers is to actually produce bikes
    with lower spec (higher weight) bits as the years go on.

    Christmas Goodies

    I replaced my "hunting safety" orange bar tape with some black Fizik tape. I like it and think it gose with my bike well.

    Santa got me some sweet Bontrager Race X Lite shoes. These shoes are bad. They are semi-custom with a moldable sole you pop in the oven, adjustable heel cup that has a fabric that feels kind of like shark skin, in that it grabs your sock when you pull up with your heel, and lastly, the "inform" carbon sole. I really like these shoes. Tell me what you think

    Personally, I liked the orange tape better. But orange is my favorite non-black color.

    I need to get a pic of my new bar tape. I went with Fizik dark grey Microtex. I think I like it. But I might end up going back to black. And I'm trying to decide on a saddle. My Brooks Swallow just doesn't seem "appropriate". Sure is comfy though.


    So far I've tried the Fizik Antares - too wide between my thighs, and too squishy. Right now I have the Arione test saddle. I did 20 miles on it last weekend, and couldn't get comfortable. Doing a longer ride Saturday. Hope it doesn't wreck the gooch.

    Did you try the Aliante?

    Oops. I tried the Aliante NOT that Antares. Too many "A"s to keep track of. The Aliante felt great for about 25 miles, then I started getting thigh friction. I have large thighs, so it's tricky.

    I have big thighs too. While the Aliante is comfortable, I'm looking at a saddle with
    a thinner profile now and the Antares is top on my list. I'm going to test one soon.
    If not, I'm not married to Fizik (while I do love their products).
    I'm pretty sure the Aliante is going to find a home on my SS.

    Yeah, I need something with a thin nose and a pretty steep taper to the actual seat part. The Antares looks like it would work for me. Unfortunately the LBS with Fizik test saddles does not have an Antares test saddle.

    The Brooks Swallow is pretty much the perfect shape and size for me. I just want to try something different on this bike. I'm not totally opposed to using it though. The Selle San Marco Regale looks like it might be worth trying. http://www.sellesanmarco.it/en/Colle...%20Racing.html

    As I posted on another thread, I was going to pick up a 10,
    but found my PS-9 for $50. in new condition a few minute from my house.
    It's basically the PS-10, but the 10 has the quick release clamp. I love it.
    It's gotten plenty of use lately.

    Yes, that would be with out pedals and cages. I like to call that "shop weight".

    I'm really digging the slammed upright stem. Looks clean and practical. Makes a lot more sense than having a downward stem with a bunch of spacers underneath -which I used to have on my Salsa La Raza.
