    This - for group rides.

    But in the crits it's mostly Cervelo and Cannondale, with a few Specialized.

    This doesn't address your question ... but I have both of those bikes. I don't have the weight problem, but I can give you my thoughts about how they compare:

    The CAAD is a heavier, and you feel...

    I was at TS 52 (Mount Airy, MD) most of Friday night and Friday evening - saw about 8 teams come through.

    The problem with RAAM is that it is NOT a very spectator-friendly sport.

    That's the difference between masters and Cat 4 / 3.

    It's a good reason to get out of Cat 5 ... but most of the masters races are faster than cat 4 / 3.

    Agreed. Groups like that are rare, though I've seen them on big century rides. Funny thing - they start out fast, at 25+mph, and tank about halfway through ... finishing in 6+ hours. The other...

    Easy to believe, IMO.

    I'm 56 and race (a little bit) and have a few credible KOMs to my name - and when I'm 60, I...

    I'd also like to blame some of those (Fender, Gibson and Marshall). Along with Fabrique Nationale (FN) - who manufactured the *****s I used when I was in the military.

    People said the same thing about carbon fiber 30 years ago.

    You're right about comfort bike geometry. The Synapse is (obviously) Cannondale's answer to Specialized's Roubaix - though I think it's a bit more aggressive.

    The EVO is one of the best bikes available today. Period.

    In the not too distant future, I hope to trade my new Trek and my 3 year old CAAD on an EVO HiMod.

    Best bike around for racing, IMO.

    I rode a lot as a kid, then raced quite seriously (road and track) between the ages of 17 and 20 (or so).

    But I doubt I rode more than 10 miles in total between the ages of 20 and 54.
