    [QUOTE=JoeyC68;13645454]I replaced my "hunting safety" orange bar tape with some black Fizik tape. I like it and think it gose with my bike well.QUOTE]

    When I first saw this colour scheme I didn't like it, but its grown on me. I like that you changed the tape to black, I think it balances having too much colour. Overall, looks nice!

    (as far as I'm concerned, if it doesn't have pedals, it's not a bike...it's still in the process of being built)

    Spooky, you have to throw some pink on that fork.
    Maybe just a subtle pinstripe around the outside of
    the oval graphic surrounding the lettering "Premium"?

    Thanks! Yes, I think the black tape keeps the whole package from being overwhelming. The grey fizik print matches the that of the shifters, stem, and seatpost.

    Thinking of selling my CAAD9-7 BBQ black, full rival, fulcrum 7, specialized toupe saddle, original seat post and fork. I have no idea what i shold sell the bike for, definitely not what I would like to get. I think I should keep it and put it in my bike museum.

    Problem is I love my BMC, and I want another one. Wife won't let me get a 3rd road bike.

    Maybe I should sell the wife?

    How Low Can You Go, Answered

    A few posts back we were talking about just how light a "weight weenie" could take a CAAD10. The link is to a September, 2010 peice that Velo News ran. Take a look at the 15 pictures that acompany the ariticle. For the product launch - Cannondale built a "not for sale" CAAD10 Ultimate. It came in at 6.3 kilos (13.88 lbs). Quite impressive IMO. I also very much like the balck paint/graphics. A very stealth touch and one I wish was available. Some of you may have seen this article, if so: sorry to rehash. Enjoy folks:


    http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/...-caad10_143376




    This Cannondale CAAD10 was built with the not-for-sale Ultimate all-aluminum package. It weighed just 6.3 kilograms.

    Pulled the trigger on one of these in 54cm:


    CAAD10 5, $1,199

    I kind of like the gray accents in the 2012 model, but I don't think I could've waited any longer >_<:



    The top cap is interesting, to say the least. Definitely different than what I'm used to on my FG. I also tried seeing what it'd be like if I slammed the stem. Is it normal for the shifter/brake cables to feel a little squashed (considering the entire handlebar's being lowered quite a bit)?

    Will I get the smack down for posting a for sale link from another forum?
    It's not my item but is relevant to the interests of this thread.

    I'm in the midwest and was told these will ship to dealers on the 20th, but mine is just a frame. YMMV.

    A couple of the small LBSs that I called said that the 2012s will mostly be coming in during the Spring when people will be out riding more. I wanted something for when summer rolls around this year and thought I pick up a 2011 on closeout.

    The gray accents are definitely starting to get to me, but I don't see any point in swapping frames on a bike I just got, heh.

    Lowering the stem shouldn't bunch the cables to bad.

    As to the top cap: did you have an all carbon fork previously? All carbon forks don't use a star nut as it will tear-up the carbon fiber in the steerer tube. I like the cap and think it provides a finished look.

    congrats on your new bike!

    The 2012's aren't out yet? I wonder how I got one already. Not trying to gloat or anything... it's just weird.

    For the FG bike, all it has is a top cap that's held in-place by a screw that you screw directly into the steerer tube. This is the first time I've used a star nut, so I guess I learned something new.

    2012s are definitely out. Some places have had 2012s since August or so, but the LBS closest to me is a small one so they can't really forecast how popular 2012 CAAD10s will be. When I went in earlier this week, they still had a 2008 Synapse (with Tiagra) going for $850, heh.

    Why but of course. The bikes seem to look better and better every year... Like trying to keep up with technology.
