    Hey guys...new here, new to cycling in general. I started a little over a month ago when I decided I was going to do a triathlon here in town. Called the bike shop and bought an 80s shogun road bike just to try out the sport...kinda fell in love with it and wanted something faster. With a lot of help from my brother, I ended up finding and buying a caad 9 with full campagnolo on craigslist. I'm hoping it shows up in the mail next week...

    Wanted to say thanks for the help lately. I really appreciate it.
    Yesterday I passed on the caad9 and now am a proud owner of my first CAAD!

    2014 CAAD10-5 BBQ!!!

    I went tested a 58 + 60. The 58 felt to compact and the 60 felt too stretched out. But with my height and long limbs, the 60cm was recommended. After fitting the 60cm felt better and was recommended with a 30 day exchange if needed...

    Now it is more comfortable when fitted but now I'm concerned just looking at what was done that maybe that is an indicator the bike is to long.

    The seat was pushed forward to the max. 1.5 degrees nose down. Raised the handles upward. Original stem. Fully stacked. My knees trail the pedal about an inch when at 3 o clock position.

    Mainly, does the seat pushed that much forward seems to excessive? Especially since my knees aren't directly dead center over the pedal in the neutral 3-9oclock position?

    Thanks again for any advice you may have.

    You might want to start a new thread to discuss the fit of your new bike. Pictures of the bike with (and/or without) you on it would likely help a good deal.

    From what you're saying, the 58 sounds like a better fit.

    Regardless, congrats on your new ride!

    Thanks I'll repost in a new thread.
    I was posting here to the audience that best knows how this one brand fits etc... I still have lots to learn. Thankfully my boss rides so I'll pick his brain about it too.

    Is it a setback post? If so, you may need a zero setback post. The stock stem may also be a bit too long. The brake levers should be in the neutral position on the bars. Sounds like you need a proper fitting!

    It sounds like you need to go with a smaller frame and longer stem. I'm no pro nor trained in any capacity, but I'm fairly certain that a saddle slammed forward means "wrong size frame", especially if you rknee is 1" behind the pedal. KOPS is a good rule of thumb to start and you should have a range of adjustment in the saddle to more the knee forward or behind the spindle. Was the stem down on the crown when you test-fit? If the saddle was jacked forward and the stem had a bunch of spacers under it...the frame is definitely too large, maybe two sizes too big.

    Again, I'm not a pro so take my statement with a grain of salt. It's funny though, it seems lots and lots of people end up with frames that are too big, even way too big, but we never hear about people complaining their frame is too small. Think about it. I'm 5'11", 32" inseam with relatively short femurs and ride a 54cm frame with a 15mm SB post and 125mm stem and I could have gone with a 52cm frame.

    Thanks for the insight.
    It's slightly amusing hearing the different options both here and the new thread I made, upon advice from some one here

    So here she is,
    2014 CAAD10 - 5 BBQ 60cm
    ($250 less than LBS in my area)

    IMG_20140610_191111.jpg

    I'm still working out minor fitment issues but I'm 98% sure the 60cm frame is for me. I wanted a "virgin" pic of her (haven't named her yet) but I forgot, the only thing that was done is adding the bat cage.

    Tonight I took off the front and rear reflectors and the reflector on the wheel. I also added black electric tape to areas where cables and saddle bag would rub against the frame.

    Do you remove that clear plastic piece attached to the wheel around the rear cogs?

    What's that 3M invisible stuff that protect the crank from the toe straps rubbing against it? Or later when I go clipless and make mistakes that might scratch it?

    Can't wait to fit some bibs and a jersey to start riding her!!!

    the bike should have come with little mylar stickies for those areas where the cables rub. Ask your bike shop what they did with them.

    That's the dork disk and yes you want to remove it. It really doesn't matter but most people think it is not aesthetically pleasing like reflectors. It does serve a purpose to help prevent the chain from going into your wheel and destroying it if you over shift but as long as the rear derailleur was set up correctly that shouldn't happen. You can carefully cut it off but the correct way would be to take off the cassette so you might want to just ask the LBS to remove it next time you are there if you care

    Guys.... I finally caved....


    I took my CAAD10 onto the grass and through the mud. Although the mud got me back real quick (I spun out. I simply had no traction with my tires).


    I was meandering around town, riding some new roads. Decided to hope onto this lake road to see what it was all about since I heard it was hilly. I quickly recognized the road as the back part of the road to one of the cross country courses I frequented in high school. I opted to take a lap around the loop, although I didn't quite make it. The back wooded parts were still a bit to moist to really ride, but the open grassy sections were fun. I had a blast! I can't say it was the most comfortable, but it was better than a freshly graveled road, that's for sure.

    My CAAD10 is now muddy. This is the second time. It feels good to get a clean road bike dirty on the trails/gravel.

    I've considered one.... There are miles and miles of gravel around my college town. I've grinded a bit on my CAAD10, but I'd really prefer something more relaxed for that. In that regard, I've considered a CAADX. I already have a name picked out for another Cannondale, if/when I get one. I just don't have the cash to pick up a CAADX (or any bike for that matter) right now.

    The other advantage is I could keep one bike at each location, so I wouldn't be doing bike transfers every weekend. It's possible I'll pick one up sometime in the next year or two.

    There's always the option of a cheap bikesdirect cross bike:

    Save up to 60% off Shimano equipped Cyclocross | Cross Bikes - Motobecane Fantom Cross

    Save up to 60% off new Disc Brake Road Bikes - Gravity Liberty 2 | Save up to 60% off new road bikes

    Save Up to 60% Off Disc Brake Road Bikes - Motobecane Turino Disc

    Save Up to 60% Off Motobecane Cyclocross Bikes - Fantom Cross Outlaw

    or a used cross bike/gravel grinder.

    I sure wouldn't want to risk crashing my caad riding on gravel roads

    I don't ride them often. I definitely don't want to lay down the CAAD if I can help it. I've only done one gravel descent. it was short, but steep. I don't really have much desire to do that again.... At least not on the CAAD.

    As per gravel/cross bikes. I'm at a loss for what to do here. Obviously I don't need a hardcore CX racer, but that's sort of what I gravitate towards. I could make that work for gravel grinding, but the loss of water bottle cages would be detrimental. On the opposite side, I don't really want to spend money on a heavy touring bike (which could really be my utility bike, including grocery commuter, gravel grinder, etc.) and race it. I suppose I could get the versatile bike and if I enjoy CX, get a hardcore race bike for that. We shall see. In the mean time, I'm really enjoying my CAAD10. I did a 40 mile ride on the day I took it onto a XC course. 37 miles on road, and 3 on grass/gravel. It wouldn't have made as much sense to rock a gravel grinder for that ride. I didn't even know I'd be riding grass when I set off, considering I set off in the opposite direction of the XC course....

    My best chance for a second bike is if I can obtain a job while at school and get some constant money flowing.

    Here is my new CAAD10 - Got it as crash replacement frame only and built it up with Campag Record / Super Record mix Groupset, Campag Zonda wheels, Zipp bars, stem and seat post, Selle Italia SLR Team saddle, Look carbon blade pedals.
    Total weight inc pedals = 15lbs 13oz! I am really pleased with that as I didn't build it as a 'weight weennie' bike.

    Look forward to seeing the pictures of it. Not a lot of Caad's with Campy, but I have two.

    For another Campag equipped bike see two posts up : )
    I wonder why in the US it's 'Campy' and in the UK it's 'Campag'? lol. Maybe the 'y' from the correct Italian pronunciation Campan'Y'olo!
