I don't know the bike lineup, but if you claim the frame is the same, then what's different? I'm guessing the 100 is a shorter/higher stem?
May be better to buy the better groupo bike & try to get...

Thanks, although I've had that bike for well over a year.
I'm just hanging around here because I may be moving somewhere a bit hillier & will be looking for some of those extra gear things.

Weld quality etc the same?

I see sram on that brushed one. Anyone know which groupo that is? I was intending to do sram this time around anyway, but hoping for Force.

Are you aware of any stiffness differences? Or just the US/foreign deal.

I've ridden my '07 Capo for a century, so I'm not looking for something soft.

Good to know. I knew it was stiff based on my Capo, but didn't know it was quite that high ranking in stiffness.

I assume the CAAD10 is no flexier, even if not proudly made in the USA?

Thanks guys. I'll consider that one. I've always liked specialized for mountain, maybe it's time to give them a chance on the road also.

How does stiffness compare with a c'dale CAAD9 or 10?

OOF. that 2012 raw has me reconsidering wanting an older US caad9. Looks just like my Capo. And do I see a non-sloping top tube?

Would guess crosswinds.


Potentially looking for a US caad9 frameset in 56, if anyone is leaving the caad cult.

Yup, MTB shorts & a MTB/club fit jersey might be wise to start. Both offer most of the advantages of the euro fit stuff, with a bit more conservative appearance.

Stiff frame recommendations?

Road biking since '01. Bought a Trek 1000. It did the job.
Around two years ago, built up a quick & dirty trek400 fixed gear. Last summer, a much nicer built '07 c'dale capo. Put a quite a few K...

if you pulled all the threads out, you wont be able to re-tap to the same size, and I doubt they make helicoils large enough.

Link seems unrelated, though if it's an '07 I appreciate it.
Geometry chart is the part that I really need though, as to compare to other frames.
