    New but already broken
    So I started looking for a new road bike back in the spring for a 50th b-day present.
    Last new road bike purchase was a Centurion Ironman back in 1987.
    Thought I needed a comfort bike as I'm getting on in years and not very flexible so I test rode all the usual suspects over the summer(Roubaix,Synapse,Domane, Defy etc.)
    None really wowed me and some handled pretty sluggish.
    Most of my rides are short and fast(for me...)so I tried the racier frames and just loved the CAAD far and away more than any of the others.
    No idea how it happened but after three weeks and eight rides I have a big dent/crease on the drive side chainstay.
    Maybe I bought a lemon as my research led me to believe these frames are pretty robust.
    Anyway the bike still looks pretty.

    Warranty should cover that no problem, you may end up with a 13 frame vice the 12 frame you had.

    Just out of curiosity, is the dent near the chainring? The drive side chainstay naturally flattens out to provide clearance for the chainrings. That's the way it is on my 9, I doubt the 10's are any different. I tried to take a picture to show just how dramatically it does pull in near the chain ring.



    I know when I crashed out of a race a couple of years ago as I was inspecting my bike my heart skipped a beat when I saw that as well.

    If it's not in that area, seemingly minor impacts have been shown to do some serious damage to aluminum frames as well. With thin walls and light weights, that's the price we have to pay.

    Yikes, that's a bummer. I'm sure Cannondale will make good on it.

    Apologies for the instagram filter, but rode it 90 miles today. Smooth as butter and fast as hell.

    Anyone know what kind of shifting cable adjusters come on the CAAD10? My old CAAD used those inline barrel adjusters, and I absolutely hated them - they never worked properly. It seems the constraints are even worse on the new bikes, because the shifter cables are wrapped under the bar tape. I saw one custom pic of inline adjusters installed just after the cables exit the bar tape, but it looks cramped and difficult to access - check out the pic here http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s...o/IMG_1987.jpg. And, as mentioned, I'd prefer to steer away from the inline version - but I don't see how any other type would work.

    I would guess no. I picked up my bike from a LBS (as you can tell by its stock parts). Although, keep us updated on your build. Just curious, what made you go for a new frame? And what are you going to do about your old frame?

    Old frame is gone lol, just got ride of it like an hour ago haha. Sold the bike.

    Didn't like the feel of plastic, but didn't want steel, so I went high end aluminum.

    When you say "New SRAM Force," are we talking actually new? Why not the grouppo off the old bike?

    Man, I kind of regret getting Fizik Microtex bartape. **** is not forgiving at all, hands get sore pretty damn quick now, even w/ gel-padded gloves.

    Those are Jagwire mini adjusters. ~ $10-15 on eBay. They also make the bullet ones with the thumb wheel. They look cool but weigh twice as much. If that matters to you.

    Any idea what the diff is between those mini adjusters, and the Jagwire Thinline adjusters (http://www.amazon.com/Jagwire-Jagwir.../dp/B005YORXJ8)?

    I get numb hands with padded tape or even microtex with padded gloves. I can go for hours with Microtex and non padded gloves. Have you tried to ditch the padded gloves? I use the Castelli gloves that have no padding but a little suede for grip.

    Not too worried about weight. I think I'm gonna pick up a pair of SRAM adjusters. Thanks for the info.

    Anyone have issues with Yokozuna and inline adjusters?

    We're similar in that respect. Microtex and batting gloves are great for me. I can't feel pinkies after about an hour if there's too much padding.

    I believe those are a 3rd type. The one's on the Caad10 used to be called Minis. New name now I believe. I'm sure they all work fine. Once everything is settled in, you'll hardly ever touch them. I picked up a set for my Caad7 a while back. Will probably just use 1 for the front. Don't want to mess with the pinch bolt out on the road.

    Think the Sram adjusters are rebadged Jagwires.

    n+1 and all that:



    '12 CAAD 10-5 with Spinergy 45mm crabon fibre clinchers (sorry for the crap quality, I'll get better ones soonish).
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.
