Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

This is a lighter frame than a 9. It was 1125gms without RD hanger, cable guide and SP clamp, maybe another 40gms. and the WCS fork was only 276gms after cut to fit.

Okay- sorry my first post. Looking to stopping kicking my own butt, get off my Specialized Crosstrail Sport and onto a proper road bike. After working my way up to 20+ mile rides. It's time. I want to avoid the "what do I buy" troll. At the end of the day ... Local, used and less than a grand are good no matter what the name. This post came up recently and I like the look and feel of the CAADs. The pics show a bike in good shape but I suck at judging value. Here's the write up:

"For sale is a 2012 Cannondale CAAD10 with 2013 Shimano 105 5700 Shifters, FD, and RD, FSA Brakes, and a Sram Force Crank. The wheels are 2012 Bontrager Race with Continental 4000S tires. Bike size is 54cm. Crank arm length is 175mm with 53/39 chain rings. The bike, components, and wheels are in great shape with little to no wear. The components were bought over the last winter and haven't even seen the road. Shimano 105 pedals and Bontrager RL saddle are included with this bike. Basically it's ready to ride, train, and race. I also have a Cycle Ops Mag trainer and some tires and tubes. Tubes are new in box and tires are a set of Michelin Pro 3 grip and a set or two of Continental 4000S. All in very good shape and ready to go home with a new owner."

i was hoping to talk the guy into 800. Not sure that is an insult. I've asked him about the other stuff- available or included in the price...I assume it is avail for additional $.


what do you guys think?

thanks-

Another person here just picked one up for $700 so anything is possible but even $800 is probably the low end. Of course, pictures would help to see the condition

You can get a new one for 900$

I saw a frame set w/the seatpost, stem/headset, RD hanger, and bars go for 375. Not that was a steal, but I would say 500 is about right for used

12.8 is crazy light. Would like to see the list of components. Love all the red stuff - very nicely done. Thanks for reposting.

People get hung up on the frame. Grams are wherever you find them.
Here's a rough list:
Frame - ~1160gms
Fork - WCS - 276
Expander/Starnut (homemade) - ~5
Stem - C'dale Fire, Ti bolts - 100
Seatpost, Hylix tuned - 114
Brakes, KCNC CB1 - 170
Wheels, Soul 2.0 wide - 1295
Tires, Vittoria Pro Lite - 350
Tubes, Conty SS - 108
Rim strips, Rox + 3m tape ~8
Cassette, Red 11/26 - 164
Crank/BB, S-works w/ tuned spider, Force rings - ~570
Bar, 3T Ergosum LTD 182
RD, Red, tuned, 124
FD 7800 w/ Parlee clamp, tuned - 69
Cages, Profile Design Karbon 32/pr
Pedals Bebop w/ Ti spindels ~150
Cable hsng, Aican alloy ~ 1/2 weight of standard
Shifters Red w/ tuned clamps - 16 down from stock

Sure I'm forgetting something.

That is a great weight! What size is the frame? And how is the handling with the Ritchey WCS fork? I'm getting one put on on my CAAD8.

Yeah I haven't seen a CAAD 10 for less than 650 so far either. Once the bidding starts in the last hour, it skyrockets to $700-800 usually, barely less than getting a new one ordered from an LBS.

Thanks. I haven't noticed any flexiness. It doesn't get the bad feedback that the Easton SLX does. Overall the bike feels very taught. The Soul wheels contribute to that, stiff in spite of their weight.
It's a 56cm

Eight hundred would be a good price. A couple of things that I don't like - the cranks are a little long for a 54, I would expect to see 172.5's. Wheels are OK but not great but the tires are great. What is he asking for it?

Mine was the source of clicks. Got rid of them by slightly greasing the treads and under the top cap.

I mi think his asking price of 1100 is reasonable for CL. Interesting observation on the crank length- I'm on sort of in between on frame sizes. I'm 5-9 with 31ish inseam. I know I will have to ride it, but didn't want to waste my time if it wasn't worth it. The pics he has posted are okay, hard to tell but I don't care about cosmetic issues, just structural ones...

caad10 frame 54 | eBay
Cannondale CAAD10 58cm Frames Set and Cockpit | eBay

Cannondale Caad 10 Frameset 54cm Carbon Fork CAAD10 Red White | eBay

I took screen shots of these the first two just incase they disappear.

The picture if the complete bike is the components off a 2013 sram force caad10 (including wheels) on a 2014 frame. It ended around 1020 and I remember this because I said to my self "why didn't I buy this and resell it"


Deals are out there, you just have top be patient. I have been looking for a deal on garmin 500 for a long time and amazon had the bundle for 200$. Jumped on that real quick

Next up is a fluid trainer.

I've now seen one out there in the 52-56cm range for for a deal worth waiting a little bit for, lol. I waited four months, ran out of patience. I still troll eBay hoping to find a black/green frameset, but happy I went with my double-black frame.

So I have been riding my CAAD9 for a few weeks now. There is a horrible creaking noise whenever I put a lot of load on the pedals. Mostly seems to happen in the big chain ring. Climbing hills in small ring I rarely hear it, hammering the cranks on the flats in a high gear I hear the creak at the bottom of each pedal stroke.

I've posted a couple of threads but just curious from the CAAD owners if you have dealt with this. Searching the net, it sounds like a common problem. My bike has BB30 with factory installed adapter and I am running SRAM cranks with GXP bb. I have taken out the cranks and bb twice and cleaned an regreased everything. I just regreased my headset bearings. I have checked and tightened every single bolt on the bike. I have checked for visible cracks in the frame and there is nothing obvious.

I want to just ignore the noise but it's very disheartening to hear it every peadal stroke.

If I read it right people used green loctite to keep out water and use more grease when packing the bb.

Every time I read about creaking noises that happen every rotation, particularly on the downstroke, I always think to myself "check the pedal threads for grease." It can make some strange sounds (from clicking to creaking) if the threads are dry, not to mention its no good for other reasons. I've had some older cranks that have threads that are worn but still functional require quite a bit of grease to shut them up. I remember the first time I realized this I kept checking for chainrub but to my frustration it was properly adjusted and could not find the source of the noise until doing a bit of reading.

No experience with BB30 style setups, but it might be worth checking to see if its dry on mating surfaces as well (assuming its not meant to be a dry interference fit).

Worth a shot to check the pedals though.
