    So far, very much. No discernible flex in the rear when climbing out of the saddle. Wish I could say the same for the Nuevation R28sl on my Roubaix. I have to keep the rear brake adjusted out on it. With their relatively light weight, especially with the Flyweight tubes & strips, they turn over very easily.

    I'd love to hear a Crit racer's opinions on how a CAAD9 compares to a CAAD10 as a pure race bike.
    My initial opinion is that the CAAD10 feels very similar to a CAAD9... except that it feels less like an aluminum bike and more like a carbon bike when just cruising around.

    It doesn't have the rough ride normally associated with an aluminum bike.

    Sprinting is another whole story though. It's very stiff and compliant. There's no give when you stand up and pedal on the CAAD10. It just goes.

    As far as upgrading from a CAAD9 to a CAAD10, it's probably not worth it. But if you're in the market for a new bike anyways, the CAAD10 is a better choice.

    Totally agree with you on every point.
    That's pretty much what I've been reading as well.

    I think that the BWW's are the best value in their price range.
    Nice weight and very decent reputation. They look good.
    Real stealthy. I like how they look on that C7.

    do you people really file those tabs off?

    if you have time to worry about how hard your quick release is to get off it's time to give up cycling, because you clearly do not understand what the sport is about...you're not a pro worrying about the 1/8 of a second difference those tabs make...get smarter.

    First of all, a hearty WEPA to you (if you are a fellow Bori ).

    Secondly, even with those nice bikes you have, a CAAD makes a great supplement bike as a trainer.
    It performs as good as any entry level carbon bike (actually, better than most).
    It's relatively inexpensive and is a great platform for upgrading.
    It's aluminum so if you wipe out, it stands a better chance of not being permanently damaged.

    On top of that, there is the ride & responsiveness that is the cake of the bike,
    with it's hot looks being the icing on that particular cake. Puro Biscocho!

    Plus, you can always upgrade to a carbon bike later. But, it will have to live up to your CAAD's performance
    and you'll have to spend a lot more for a carbon bike to get one that performs like a CAAD.
    For an entry level fee of under $1,500. for a CAAD10-5, you will have a real machine.

    If I were doing it all over again knowing what I know now, I'd get a CAAD10 today and save my
    pennies skipping over a SuperSix to go for a SuperSix HiMod EVO that is just around the bend.
    SuperSix owners are going to get a major case of bicycle wood for that EVO when it comes out.
    But I digress...

    Whoops, noob mistake... I do not have a road bike. I thought The cult of Caad went for all cannondales... I'm currently on the hunt for my first road bike and I'm considering the Supersix 5 and the Madone 4.5... But what you just said about later upgrading to a more serious carbon frame has got me thinking if I should get aluminum and then later on get a better CF frame...

    Hey everyone. I just bought i caad10 4rival, about a month ago. I'm very green
    green to this sport and i have saved up to splurge a little on my new found hobby
    I guess you can say. Well my question is any suggestions on upgrading bars, stem,
    seatpost, and wheels. I got brakes which are ciamillos i think those are good and a
    saddle which is sella italia turbomatic gell flow, well thats what the guy at my LBS
    recommended. But your guys input would help to trick out my caad. Thanks!!

    I kind of figured that (that you hadn't made a choice yet).
    I wouldn't talk you out of the SuperSix, but warning:
    if you upgrade later, there's not much upgrade from a SuperSix to a HiMod.
    I'd go CAAD10 first, because you can always keep it when you upgrade.
    You'd probably get ride of the SuperSix if you went with a HiMod caliber bike.
    But ultimately, only you know what you'd do.

    I love Treks, but the CDale SS is a much better bike in my opinion.
    Ride the CAAD10, the SuperSix 5, the Madone, and any other bike you can.
    Pick the one that fits best and makes you smile the hardest in your price range.

    Welcome to The Cult.

    Before upgrading, put a couple hundred miles on your bike. See what you "need" first.
    (longer stem, shorter stem, wider/narrower bar, etc...).

    Saddles, bars, stems, all personal issues. What fits you is the right choice.

    We have a few CAAD10 Rivals here (in fact, there is 1 particularly awesome 10-4).
    Check out their builds for an ideal of what you might be looking for.
    There's really not much needed on that CAAD10-4 of yours.
    It's a very solid bike as is.

    Wheels, yes. Definitely upgradeable. You have to pick a budget.
    You can get a perfectly decent set of wheels for $500.-$600. that
    would make a significant improvement and be justifiable investment.

    Don't forget...pics or it didn't happen.

    I just got back from the Boston Marathon midnight ride on my CAAD10. Wow! The bike is amazing. Quick and super responsive, it made climbing hills easy. It made Heartbreak Hill into mediocre mound! Thanks again guys for all the awesome info about CAADs.
