Just to be clear, the bosses are the four threaded parts attached to the frame down tube and seat tube that the bottle cage screws go into.
Will be riding a CAAD soon. Its great to be on board on a very informative forum.
Jingo, welcome aboard!
Is there a Synapse thread or can we put them in here? Just bought the Mrs. the new Disc Synapse.
Well, dare I argue that......
If CAAD10 is the most comfortable CAAD ever made (SAVE system rear triangle) and the supersix even moreso with that hybrid-length head tube, does Cannondale even NEED a Synapse anymore???
The frame geometry is different between the two. They don't really compare IMO.
the sse has slight (and I mean slight...like half a degree difference between the tube angles) differences over the caad10.
The ss does no have a "hybrid" head tube because that would mean the caad10 has a hybrid head tube
Personally, i still don't think they need a caad8 AND a caad10...and as I sad before they will probably morph the two have have different "trims" of frame much like the allez vs. the allez E5 Smartweld.
Synapse: sporty alloy and carbon enduro bike
Caad10: alloy race bike
Super Six Evo: carbon race bike
super six: carbon race bike (discontinued)
caad8: "relaxed"/entry level "race" bike
The super six was discontinued because there is no need for 2 carbon race bikes, espically when the ss himod and the sse normal mod are feel the same on the road (and others have said the ss and the ss-hm felt the same as well). The only other over lap they have right now is with the caad8 and caad10 and like hell they are going to get rid of the caad10

Speaking of Caad8...
I might have to find this as a year end sale frameset and build a commuter

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
It's missing the orange highlights... I liked the Gulf colorway on the CAAD10 better.
Keeping it clean.
Hey guys. I have a 2013 CAAD10-4 black and white model. I hate the white because it looks dirty so fast. How do you guys keep you CAAD clean while riding lots? What is your cleaning process and schedule?
Can I spray degreaser on the cassette, derailleurs, chain and chain stay and water off without disassembling the bike after every rise or so?

Just give it a light spray with water and clean with a damp cloth each ride. After a week, give it a wash with soapy water.
They aren't as fragile as some would have you believe - just don't spray pressurised water into BB, headset/forks, etc, etc.

It reminds me of the Belgium flag colors, which is prestigious in cycling. Plus, aqua blue is in my top two favorite colors, and red is in my third favorite color. Must get.

Just need a quick value assessment. An offer just popped up for a 2010 CAAD9 - 4 (SRAM RIVAL) , upgraded SRAM red brakes, upgraded Ksyrium SL Premium Superlight Rims. $1000. What do you guys think?
Hurry! .. Need to decide ASAP... (feels like I keep missing deals because I don't know values.. LoL)

According to that, it looks like you need to ask yourself whether the brakes and wheels warrant paying a premium for the bike as BBB says it's only worth $790 in 'like new' condition.
