Howdy CAAD folks

I upgraded from a Trek 7.5 to a CAAD8 last spring. After about two years of looking at 3k to 4k carbon bikes, I was at my LBD and saw the black and white CAAD. Afgter one quick test ride I loved it. Tried a CAAD10 also but I thought the 8 has a smoother ride. Either one was in my price range, but I think the CAAD8 was a great value. I have run 2 duathalons with it, done two century rides and racked up more than 1200 miles in about 6 months. Absolutely recommend this bike in this price range. I am planning on a set of carbon wheels in spring, but I will be riding this bike all winter, yeah I live just about 1 hour south west of Buffalo NY. My son told me about this forum, he rides an off brand, (Cervelo), what can I say, you raise them the best you can but in the end you can't control them.

Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
