    Great pic! I just got the same colour as yours as crash replacement following car vs bike accident.
    I have just weighed the bare frame on a decent scale and it came in at 1130g!!! : )

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. :-)
    I have run Mich Pro3 and 4's and found them to be comfortable but they may not last as long as the Contis. Regarding pressure, I weigh 155 lbs and run 80F/90R psi with 25c Mich Pro3's on my backup bike (CAAD9 CX).

    For wheels, take a look at the wider rims like HED Ardennes, Zipp 101, etc. They may be more comfortable since they allow a somewhat lower tire pressure.

    Hot!

    I love the matte grey Cannondale colorways for this year (also on the SS Evo 6 and 4). Subtle and sexy.

    Nice bike Dude. Bars look like a good start. How does it feel in the drops?

    Feels good. Fits perfectly. I want to chop the top of the stem off but other then that I'm happy with it. 18.5 lbs now. Nothing special but I'll replace wheels eventually

    Yeah, the wheel set is listed at 2021 grams so I guess that offsets the full carbon fork and seat post. Also running SRAM Apex group so not saving weight there. Got the frame set used and transferred parts from cheaper bike. Still an upgrade for me so I'm very pleased with it so far

    I just picked up a 2011 CAAD 10 last week. So, I'll consider myself part of the cult.

    I got a smokin' deal on it - $700. (Quick question RE: CAAD 10. Please help)

    All I did to it was add a cateye wireless computer.






    Thoughts?

    Nicely done. The bar drop look good on the bike, just way too low for my aging body!

    Thanks!! The guy on CL listed it for $1000... I offered him $700 - he agreed and I ran to snatch it.

    I had a chance to ride it about 60 miles this week. And let me tell you.. it's a much better commuter than my CX Fantom! Huge difference! - so much faster, lighter and better shifting. I'll keep the CX Fantom for the gravel and fire trails. But the CAAD10 will be my go to road/commuter bike!

    Hi,

    New to the CAAD10 family, as I recently purchased a '14 w/ 105. It's absolutely a great bike, but since I wanted a pure 105+ build, was looking to replace at least the crank and the Tektros (likely to either a 105 or Ultegra).

    That all said, I happened upon what appears to be a great deal for a new-old-stock set of Hollowgrams SIs (not the SiSL2) for about $500.00 USD. While I've read nothing but great things about this crank/chainset, I've also read some comments to the effect that cranks being, well, just cranks and therefore unworthy of much focus or source of spending. So being somewhat new to biking, I'm therefore wondering if the Hollowgrams are indeed a wise long-term purchase, or if I'm better of going another route. Also, while I intend to replace the wheels - I don't plan to do so until I drop below about 170/175 given some of the weight limits on the nicer sets.

    Thanks, everyone.

    I would just stick with what you have until you wear it out. Being new to biking,upgrading will only make you feel better and not make you into a better rider.

    The FSA crank grabs the chain and the brakes stop you right? As a beginner, that's all you need.

    Use that money to invest in quality clothing/computers/shoes/pedals/etc and clock 2500 miles on your bike before you decide it you want to upgrade something. That will show you 1. if you like biking or not and 2. How much you need to improve before you need your bike to improve (because in all honesty, it's rarely the bike that holds someone back, rather the person holding the bike back).

    And lastly, when you replace something that doesnt need replacing, your have an initial "yeah that was a great choice" followed by a "wow, i just wasted my money because I spent 500$ to do nothing more than the exact same thing"

    A $700 complete CAAD10! Wow! I'd buy 2 at that price.

    My CAAD10 is my most reliable bike that I own, and since I have wanted to start commuting to work by bike and a managerial change so I can store my bike inside my work, I have set up my CAAD10 for some commuter duty. Basically I just moved the stem up 2 spacers, and zip-tied a head lamp to the bars. I left my cheap-o bike like at my college apartment, so I had to make do with what I have here. It works, and I only have to ride at night twice a week. I ride with a messenger bag full of my work clothes. Here in a week or two, I'll talk to my manager about storing my work clothes at work, or try to find a place to hide a change of clothes. Today will be commute number 3. Here's a picture I snapped behind work.

    20140517_085428-ACTION.jpg

    P.S. Keen eyes might notice the attachments for Mud Crud MKII fenders. I finally picked up a pair. I haven't mounted the whole system up, but I decided to leave those tabs on since I'm not trying to show off the bike and in the event I need to place my rear fender on quickly.

    I have two of the 105 caad10s. On one I replaced the crank with the SLK and the other I kept stock. There is absolutely no difference between the performance of the two cranks that I can tell. I did replace the shifters, brakes and rear derailures on both with Ultegra and the wheels with Kysiurm Elites. The wheels made the biggest difference.

    +1. $500 will buy nice shoes, bib shorts, Jersey etc if you don't already own all of that. That will improve your performance more than cranks

    +1 on replacing the Tektros with Shimano brakes.
    I just bought another 6700 crank of eBay for $160-shipped in new condition, the first one was $200. In my experience, the 6700 crank shifts way better than 5700, and way way way better than FSA. I really wanted SiSL2 but that thing is $900. I vote you get a 6700 crank and wait for an SiSL2. There are a ton of crank options out there with SiSL parts and other stuff, but it's hard to beat the value of a clearance 6700 crank. Praxis rings might be another option, but I have no experience with those.
    Dura-Ace cables were also a huge upgrade in shift quality.
    Lots of shops seem to be selling demo Zipp 101s for about the same price or less than Zipp 30s, I recommend that and like my set.

    frame looks legit but in my opinion you can do better. That's $350 for a bare frame that you will have to spend additional money to have it painted or powder coated.

    Nice bike! I love the colors!! I also use my CAAD10 to commute to work. I just take clothes the day before my commute and stash them in my drawer. Assuming your commute is by road...This bike is awesome for commuting!
