    Anyone ever go from a CAAD10 to a SuperSix?

    Hi,
    I'm curious the thoughts of those who have ridden CAAD10's (And loved them), that ended up moving (not going to say upgrading here) to a SuperSix (standard 105).

    I have the opportunity to do it without much $ out of my pocket. I love my CAAD, its quick and fun, but I am going to do some longer rides, but I do NOT want to sacrifice any speed. One guy said that he feels like his Super isn't as responsive as his CAAD when initiating a sprint.

    Honestly, I am not sure what your real question is.

    The CAAD 10 is a great bike, so is the SuperSix, either way you can't go wrong. Ride the SuperSix and compare for youself. At that level it is a matter of personal choice. I have the 2013 SuperSix Ultegra, friends have the CAAD10. With their Carbon wheels their bike is lighter than mine.

    Someone telling you which bike he prefers doesn't really help YOU.

    Does caad9 -> evo count? There's no way the evo is slowing me down compared to the caad.

    However, I did test ride a regular SS a couple years ago and while I'm probably not good enough to really evaluate this, it did seem like the BB on the SS had more flex over the caad. At the time, it was part of the reason I didn't feel a big need to get one. The evo, however, just spoke to me in new and exciting ways.
