    Cannondale Capo SS/FG?

    Anyone heard of this or have more info? I checked Cannondale's site, Google and the BF search function and didn't find anything. According to my LBS, it's supposed to be out at the end of the month, be 5 lbs. lighter than the Langster and e/w a carbon fork, Formula hubs, DT Swiss spokes and Mach rims. Supposed price is $799.

    That's about $500 more than I would pay for that.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Yeah, the LBS guy mentioned it was the CAAD8 frame. I doubted the 5 lbs less claim cuz that would make it like 15 lbs or something. He said the frame was 2.5 lbs. Dunno if that's what the CAAD8 weighs.

    Sorry for the bump, but the guys at my LBS just told me about it yesterday. I think they said it was going to be Caad5, bit I had a couple of beers after the told me. According to their rep, the bikes should be out within the next 6 weeks. There are two color options... flat black and polished. The Coda cranks, seatpost, stem, bars, tape, levers, and brakes are black. Its gonna have a 48x17 gear ratio to start with.

    Edit: The early release catalogue has a picture of the black one built up. Yet the "polished" frame only picture had what looked vertical drops. Hopefully the frame only picture was a mess up.

    CAAD5 makes more sense.
    a CAAD8 frame alone costs over $800

    Coda cranks? eeeeeew.
    any word about the wheelset?

    The wheelset is typical Cannondale, little higher on the level than the other guys. Formula hubs, and of course its a flip-flop rear. I'll get with my LBS to get the particulars, but the wheelset/tires are better spec'd than what is on the Langster.

    cannondale abandoned the coda brand a long time ago, all of their "in-house" stuff is cannondale-branded now. most of the cannondales have either shimano, truvativ, or the SI hollowgram cranks these days. i'm willing to wager that the cranks will be truvativ.
