Which aluminum road bike? for crits

Are there race specific aluminum frame sets that I can buy? Im thinking of putting the Ulteg 6700 Shifters and rest 105s.

I need something very stiff since my race discipline is sprinting and cheap so I dont cry when it breaks. Budget is 1300 after tax

Thank you.

Well the standard answer is CAAD#. Not sure what you mean by "race specific". In my book if it fits and is not too heavy it's good to race on.

From what I read they are compatible, all Ulteg 6700 comps are affordable..I would use all.

Heres what I found so far..

Team Nytro CAAD9 frameset $640
All 6700 Groupset $1000

Its over budget...

if you want really cheap just buy a scattante frame and fork at performance for $200 throw some parts on and race and then just buy a better frame with all your winnings.

but if you can get the cannondale, do it! three of my seven bikes are cannondales, a caad 9 road, a caad 3 'cross and a headshock mtb bike. my brother has a caad 6 road and a scalpel and a hardtail w/a lefty and my dad has a 2.8 road and a mtn tandem. so we like cannondales, obviously.

CAAD9 5 is $1400 at Nytro. It's almost exactly what you want and only a little bit more. If you want cheaper just go on bikesdirect.com.
