2010 CAAD8, picked her up this morning. 15 miles on her so far, looking forward to many many more.
Psalm, I like the paint job on your Caad8. An alloy white seatpost and white saddle would go nicely for a transition from black in front to white in back. Either way it's a sharp bike.
Easton wheels just look cool..............

"Absolutely imbecilic. But typical." ..... pcad
BB30 and 105...very tempting. If it would've been BBQ, there'd be no hesitation in me buying it.
But damn it was tempting as all hell. I remember standing there thinking:
"I could have it painted, yeah, that's it, I'll have it painted!"
Doing all I could to justify buying that CAAD9-5 right there.
Okay, so I think I know the response but quick question. The CAAD9 6T or the Synapse 6? The price is basically the same and I'm new to the road but have been riding the MTB a few hundred miles on the roads each of the past few years and would like to start doing some charity rides and longer distances so any advice is good advice. Can you guys share your thoughts?

My trusty steed, midnight CAAD8 with matching Soul 4.0s, perfect.
Ugh, I love my 9 but I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to buy a 10 at some point. Just too sick looking and the frame weight...yummy. Will be interested to hear more ride reports comparing it to the 9.

Isn't Cannondale own by Dorel or Merida which also owns a bunch of others like Mongoose and Schwinns? CAAD frames are prolly coming out from the same asian plant as Trek, Specialized etc. I don't get it.
The old Cannondales were nice though. Nowadays, it's pretty much the same with everything else. Different paint schemes and component choices. But whutevah. I like their Touring bikes.
And Dorel does own Pacific which owns Schwinn and Giant
and Giant makes bikes for Specialized, Trek and Bianchi.
I noticed how much more the CAAD10 looks like an entry-level Trek 1.X Series with the tapered tubes now.
My Caad 10 5 that im trying to strip down and build up with full sram red. Still havent ridden it yet, even though i rode another one in the shop.
let me try.
caad10-4. everything is stock. look keo 2 max carbon. about 18.2 pounds. 52cm. wont be upgrading for a long, long time. alright BF start ripping and tell me whats wrong so i can conform to your prestigious standards. does anyone think that the cable housing from the rear derailleur should be longer?
Beautiful bike though. I'm totally jealous. I called around the local shops the other day and only one place has a 10 in stock, but they haven't even built it yet. Supposed to be done this week and I'm gonna go check it out.
