    cannondale as frameset?

    i like the track bike, and while the components are nice (dura-ace, ultegra bb, etc)...i wonder if the frameset is available, and for how much?

    i'm debating the purchase of an aluminum frame here. not totally sure.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    Cannondale will sell you any of their bikes as a frameset but they tend to price them to make it so that you should buy the full bike. If you work at a C'Dale shop or ride for one you can get smoking pro deals on the frames though...pro deal for a CAAD9 road frame is less than $500.

    It isn't. I don't know how they are doing that but that is rediculously cheap. Like, less than I would pay working at a Cannondale dealer.

    Do you guys have a link to a picture of the CAAD9 track frame? I cannot see it on the site; maybe I am getting dumber?
