Took my 10 out today for its inaugural ride. About as beautiful to ride as it is to look at
I'll hop in this thread. Guess I'm a member of the cult now. Got my 2012 CAAD10 5 today. Upgraded from a 2009 Jamis Ventura Sport. Now I know what riding a bike is supposed to be like.
I hope to get some white handlebar tape and a white saddle soon.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

Thanks for the trade offer, but I'm looking at a Fizik saddle. I forget which model it is.
The bottle cages are Bontrager cages, got em on clearance when I bought the bike. They were $14 a piece, so nothing fancy. Later on I might try to get some in a brighter white to match the Cannondale logo better.
Overall, I'm really happy with this bike. I don't think you can beat it for the price.
Ok so there is a nib 2012 7900 complete groupset on my local CL for 1299. Not saying I should spend that much money right now, but I'm tempted to spring for it to turn my bike into a true 10-1.
And I had to work on roofs (at least, supervise these projects).
And, yeah...I need green too. Green n' Mountains.
Yes both of those tapes do clean up well. I found these cages on E-bay. I'm not sure if you want to go with the red it has in it, but it matches my CAAD 9 scheme very well. I may order mine soon. Glad you like the bike..
