    Depends on the price difference, but 5800 (11-speed 105) is pretty darn good. And I don't think you want Bontrager wheels either way.

    I did the same. A warr. replacement frame was ~1.5 cm longer in the top tube. I dropped to a 90mm stem and ordered bars that were 8-9mm shorter in reach. I think it would have worked, but I found a...

    Are these commuter wheels? Have you been struggling with flats? You've ordered, so whatever.

    I don't think I'd spend the coin for a carbon hybrid. Most carbon roadies will do fine with your weight, but might not be worth the coin either. Under $2k, alloy with decent parts is probably the...

    The main concern at your weight is wheels. You might want hand-built with 28+/32+ spokes with strong rims (instead of the stock set). Frames in that price range will be fine.

    +1. There's a 95mm C3 'take-off' right now on ebay for cheap, but I'm sure they are heavier than the OP wants.

    I just trashed a frameset and will be liquidating quite a bit of lightly used (or NOS) 9 speed stuff. Shifters, cassettes, etc. Don't spend too much if you don't have the right wheels.

    +1. If the frame is solid...wheels and 11 speed groups can be had pretty cheaply. No reason to sink money into another CAAD10. Either aim higher or don't bother.

    Wheels are one upgrade that is super easy to transfer to a new bike. Spend $350-500 and they are likely to be better than whatever comes on your new bike. So the new stock wheelset (when you buy a...

    Wider is the new black (H plus, Pacenti, B-dop's, etc.). Mavics aren't bad...but pretty overshadowed for the price these days.

    I think the Enemy is a 'cross bike - which might be fine - not sure of your plans.

    The OCR2 is a decent starter road bike - especially at that price.

    I'm sure you know this, but there's a pull ratio difference between 5600/6600 calipers and 5700/6700 ones. I don't believe it's enough to make much practical difference though.

    Yes - those are 6510 Ultegra 9-speed shifters in the pic. Not 6700 and not 10-speed.

    I'm not sure the fork is original - but I think it looks promising overall if the fit is good.

    Pic's? $500 doesn't sound too bad, actually, but the condition (and fit) are important. 9-speed ultegra was 6500, 6600 and 6700 were 10-speed.

    I doubt you'll find red hoods for older Sora. Hudz were more of a 5600/6600 and later thing. Red finishing tape is an easy way to add a little color in that area.

    Oh boy, my wallet didn't need to see that. Even cheaper in silver.

    And I assume everything is a-okay for folks running 5800 or 6800 with '10 speed' chainrings? Like older r600, 6700, or FSA type...
