What road bike do you have?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I tested a bunch of rides...Tarmac sl4 di2...cannondale super six, among the top of the list. but this stood out. Also cheaper that these...under $5k. The ride is redic...super stiff...I'm a big dude so I can flex a stiff frame. Fuji was the last brand on my list, but when I saw it in person I was sold...it's so fast.

Not sure if i want to risk it...but they are def better looking in person...really go well with the bike. Look awesome rolling...but i can agree they are a little much...but they are fast and well, thats all that matters at this point.

Do you mind me asking where you found your CAAD10 for $900? I've been looking for that exact bike and have only found them around 1400.

Sorry, I should have mentioned it was used with 20 miles on it.

No LBS will sell it to you that low. My LBS manager has one and he told me that's below cost.

Center, three down has some seriously strange drops. Where are they from and can you ride them comfortably?
