    I think he was asking if there is a difference in the aluminum used to build the two bikes. I know the current CAAD10 usses 6069 aluminum and the Synapse uses 6061. I will not pretend to know how much difference there is in the two.

    anyone??

    That article is pretty ridiculous. First of all, no composite frames are "exploding", I'm a little surprised NYT even published this. It also doesn't account for the stress of pro riding, the number of miles, stresses and accidents in travel, nor the way I would treat my bicycle if I had an endless supply of free bicycles. Most important of all, this article doesn't account for stress or crashes that would break a metal bicycles as well, sustained on the composite frame.

    I was wondering how dose the crank option worked? I went to look at Caad10 and it had the size 50/34 on it and I want the 53/39. Yesterday I was told it was a complete swap and today I was told today for a 53/34 crank it would be 700 dollars more.

    Thanks. Just googled this from aerospace metals handbook. "6069 tensile ultimate and yieldstrengths for the T6 condition are about 40 percenthigher than its sister 6061 alloy ".

    Which CAAD were you looking at. 50/34 is a compact crank and does seem to come on more bikes these days. A standard crank is 53/39. I also prefer a standard but it's really flat where I live. If I lived in an area where I would have to do a lot of hills I would go compact. Aside from that you can definately go from a compact to a standard for less than $700....bike shops are just insane with the pricing IMO.

    +1

    Or you could buy a Hollowgram standard crankset and swap between the two if you travel to hillier or flatter areas for riding.

    It shouldn't cost anything to swap. The CAAD10s are offered in both standard and compact, so as long as the dealer had the second crankset, they should be able to do it. If they don't swap it for free, I wouldn't be buying from them.

    anyone??

    There's really 3 types of aluminum alloys used in bikes.

    6061, 6069 and 7005

    6xxx series alloys are aluminum with primarily mangesium and silicon

    7xxx series alloys are aluminum with primarily zinc


    6061 aluminum is generally 96% or more aluminum with the next highest elemental ingredient being magnesium at up to 1.2%

    6069 aluminum is generally 96% or more aluminum with the next highest elemental ingredient being magnesium at up to 1.6%

    figure the main difference is a slight decrease in weight, and slight increase in stiffness and hardness with no major change to ductility.

    7005 uses zinc.

    without getting into a ton of specifics, 7005 is stiffer and harder but more brittle.

    Paid $1200 for a 2013 CAAD10 5, a bit overpriced but I didn't want to waste this summer so I bought it. Sold the wheels for $100 after I bought a different wheelset.

    Anyway, congrats and post pictures of your new bike!

    Wish I could say I bought it new but it was from Craigslist. The guy bought it from Freshbikes around Feb and sold it to me on early June. It was practically new.

    Remove the spacers...set the hoods so they are level with the floor to start. A -17 would be level with the ground.

    Then make sure your neck and back can handle the slam.
