My third bike was perfect in 1992, it was a Tomassini with Columbus SLX tubing. Since then I've had a CAAD3 C'dale, an Eddy Merckx with SLX tubing, a Serrotta Atlanta, a Cinelli Starlight, an Orbea Orca, a LOOK Kg 381 a LOOK Kg481sl and a CAAD8. Out of all of those the Cinelli was a great bike on California roads but about beat the fillings out of my teeth on Texas chip seal. I hated the Orca and the CAAD3. The Serrotta was a nice easy bike but was a bit laid back in the geometry. The LOOK's are right up there as the best bikes I've ever owned, but the winner is the CAAD8. It's the best bike that I can train, ride and race on. It's pretty damn compliant and handles like a slot car. It's stiff and light, and pretty inexpensive. All in all it's a great bike.
