    Are you ready to wait until 2013?

    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.

    It's actually going to start to trickle out in June with the full line-up being out by August.

    I noticed that too. Even if it's locked or moved to the private mod forum it still shows as locked or moved. This one seems to have been nuked into oblivion. Or maybe the carbon assploaded and took the thread with it.

    Another thread disappeared - 2ndGen's lightweight climbing wheel thread *poof* vanished as well...

    There was actually some really good practical info at the end of that thread from Psimet I wanted to re-read, it's a shame it's gone.

    It's a conspiracy. Probably caad haters.

    Someone should put all the wisdom from Psimet in a thread of it's own for posterity.

    Thank you. It was painful for me to get rid of the Bonty stem, but I have to admit the Edge fits better.
    Once it's completed (and we get a nice day), I'm going to put in some miles on it to see if it's better
    than the Bonty stem I removed. If it is, it stays. If not, I'm going to match the Bonty to the CAAD9's
    BBQ finish with Cannondale Factory Paint and it goes back on; aesthetics be damed. If the Edge survives,
    the Bonty will go to CL or eBay.

    I'm thinking about taking off the wheel decals next. I don't know. Every time I blacken
    something on it, whatever is left on it that is "not" black stands out more. Grrr.

    All you need 2Gen is an Edge seatpost. That would totally do it!!!
    Oh yeah!!! She's a beaut!!! That stem by the way looks way better
    Than the bonty stem! IMHO.

    Do it. Why would you want to have everyone in the world know you own something fancy?

    And not only do logos ruin the aesthetics of a bike, but you also become a walking billboard. Do away with them!

    Thanks!

    The Edge/Enve is nice, but there is not much gain in weight savings (even cut)
    and the clamping system might not support my rail system (7X9 carbon).
    I'm married to the Fizik Cyrano post. It'll be a perfect combination with the saddle I have coming in.

    Personally, what others think doesn't concern me. If that was the case, I wouldn't own a Cannondale.
    I've been thinking of removing the decals because they look so busy on an otherwise austere build.
    On the other hand, I have pics with my "plain" Mavic CXP22's and the bike almost looks too plain.
    I changed my goal from being murdered-out to finding a balance between the black & silver.
    I'm going to look into having custom decals made up (maybe something to match the frame's
    lettering design which matches the fork's and the stem's and the tire's style).

    I chose black for my build because if you buy Rabobank team colors you are kinda stuck with those colors. A black frame can go any number of ways with color or without. I chose without and built an all black and white. Pics are few pages back in this thread.
    All I'm saying is ... large pigs can run faster than you think.

    I wish my CAAD were in those colors (liquigas), but the 9 5 was offered in blue or grey the year I bought one
