    I've been running BB30 for awhile now on a Supersix and both my CAAD10's.

    0 creaking and I've ridden through rain a ton of times and did a race in massive rain.
    -Cat-3-o-meter: TBD :/

    If my crank creaks or anything else on my bicycle makes a noise, time stops. Tolerating noise on a bicycle is the same mentality that turns-up the radio to hush noises from a car.

    Wow, that frame looks new. Did you find something NOS or just in good shape?

    Yeah, a bit much on the wheels but probably looks cool moving. Now you need the spidering to replace those annoying FSA rings.

    Gonna have to agree with the others. Nice bike and wheels, but 3 green stickers and 3 black stickers on each side of each wheel might be a bit overkill.

    And yep, time to scour the for sale forums for some spiderrings.

    Found the frame on eBay. Pristine condition, with a price to match. Happy to find it though.

    Building it up with a mix of new and used components, including Athena 11spd. The rationalization is that I can't justify another bike for myself until she gets N+1.

    The Cannondale:Specialized ratio is off. One more Specialized and Earth may stop spinning.

    Until you can afford a nail to hang that picture you should probably stop buying bikes and enve wheels.

    That is sick. Which one to ride?

    Also, I like that the bikes are on the wall and the art is on the floor. Priorities.

    Do you like burning more calories from having to actually shift?

    I think before I become an actual cannondale humper I have to try other brands. The tarmacs have always caught my eye, and I like the look of them more than the cannondale evo. I think if I ever have the money for a second bike I am going to pick up one of those (if not a cross bike). If won't be a fancy as yours though

    You already have a good length stem for stable handling and proper weight distribution; your spacer stack is not extremely tall, but it's not really short either - adding more spacers in combination with a longer stem would only serve to decrease front end stiffness and increase stress on the steerer tube; looks wise, a longer seat post is considered more attractive but a spacer stack with a long stem just screams "frame too small" to me; as for weight saving, you could save as much or more grams by going for a different paint job. The only positive I can see is a slight increase in comfort from the longer seat post. In my opinion, it's not worth it.
    yes, you make some very good points, particularly about bikes with more post and tall steerer stack screaming 'too small' I don't want to run the steerer any lower and wound have to add at least one spacer to be in the same place due to 5mm shorter head tube on 50cm. The stem I have is plenty long enough @120mm. I may stick with 52cm. Thanks.
