    They (the handlebars) are up, I mean waaay up. The drops should be parallel to the ground.

    If you want a flat transition from the bars to the hoods maybe you should consider changing to compact bars (what you have there is a classic/traditional bend).

    Congratulations on the new bike.

    Here's a better picture. Nothing changed except the camera position.

    Read my post. The drops should be parallel to the ground. Rotate your handlebars.

    Cheers.

    I know that not all bars are the same. There are several geometries available (classic, track, compact, anatomic, etc.) to suit different riding styles and personal preferences. What you have on your CAAD10 is a classic style handlebar.

    I mentioned your comments to the shop mechanic and he said the bars should point to the rear dropouts.
    That is not a solid rule. There is a proper way to install handlebars. The starting point is always that the drops should be flat. Rotating the bars (a little) so that the drops point to the dropouts is acceptable to a degree (subjective). But I guess to each his own.

    FYI, here's a good article on handlebars:
    Road Drop Bar Geometry


    Cheers.

    It looks to me like your Litespeed's drops are pointing at the rear brake. And your CAAD's drops are pointing at your bottom bracket.

    Each to their own as was said. To me your set up looks more like what is expect to see on a tourer or relaxed geo road bike, but if you like it ride it til it breaks.

    Thanks for making my point @dudemanppl.

    Here's my CAAD10 with classic bars.


    @RonH

    Your Litespeed is on compact bars. If your mechanic says so, then why are the drops NOT "pointed to the rear dropouts"? Does that rule apply to certain (read: classic) bars only?

    here's how you mount classic bars. Mechanics will even put a straight edge from the bottom of the drops and so it touches the lever. Then AFTER the levers are mounted. Turn them as you like to match wrist angle. That's what makes sense to me

    Well, I broke my 2nd free-hub body today and was left stranged 40 miles from home. After a long walk and wait to get home, I left the LBS with some lightly used Zipp 101's for a reasonable price better than Zipp30s, and I get the old Zipp hub instead of a SRAM hub:

    This will hold me over until I can get Chris King R45s and Flo30 rims.

    I also added a 53/39 crank since I live in Dallas and have no business with a 50/34. I hope I don't regret this when I go to Austin.

    Why would they? CAAD 10 is a premium RACING bike.

    Guy on the Evo looks ********, bike looks way too small for him, look at the stiffness of his arms in the drops, looks painful to me if he were to bend his arms on that tiny bike with his seatpost jacked up like that on a STRAIGHT toptube bike... Look at how far back his saddle has to be for him to fit it, so his knees are over the BB rather than near or forward of his pedal spindle. It just looks dumb to me. Maybe I'm wrong and know nothing, but he looks stupid on that bike.

    It just looks like the thing they do at the line where they throw the bike forward. Or he's realized that he's lost, and then just gave up on form. idk

    Most racers in a sprint throw the bike forward in a final attempt to get the wheel ahead. Looks like that's what he did - his butt's way behind where the saddle should be.

    Sorry, I realize I am referencing an older post, but I am thinking about how to get a little more comfort from my 2013 CAAD 10-3. It is completely stock. Would these wheels make a ton of difference? They do not seem to break the bank but would there be others to recommend under a grand (maybe some carbon wheels)? Also, I have been looking at new tires, maybe some 25 mm ones. I read that some of the Michelin's are a little too tall and would rub. I would like to keep them as cost effective as possible (Under $35 a tire or so...I'm cheap). I am sure if I search a ton I could probably find my answers in multiple threads but figured I would ask here.

    People seem shy about giving their opinions in this thread. :-)

    Wheel won't make your ride more or less comfortable. Tires will. Spend more $$ on good tires like 25mm GP4000s. Wheels are for performance enhancement. Unless bling bling is what you are looking for.

    I had serfas seca tires and they were awesome, they are about 35 each. As just mentioned, tire pressure determines comfort. I run 95-100 psi (front/back) and feel everything with my 700x23 gator skins. 700x25 are much comfort wise.

    What tires do you have now?

    I have the stock wheels/tires. The Mavic Aksium. I am about 185 lbs and run around 100 lbs a tire.

    Try taking it down to 95-90. May feel a bit squishier when your really hammering it but nothing too bad (in my opinion). I ran 85ish psi in my rear for about 30 miles of a 50 mile ride (due to a flat and my frame pump doesnt have a gauge) and found it sufficient.

    You can also try thicker bar tape next time you wrap them up and if you have the money carbon seat posts/bars/stem would take the edge off some of the vibrations.

    Personally i'd go tires/bartape prior to dropping real money on carbon
