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

color-matched kickstand is super hot, but valve stems aren't down, so the pictures are invalid

I guy I know had his bike stolen. He was pissed & sprayed the replacement bike green- wheels, tires, saddle- everything.

It has not been stolen.

Thankfully, it's really a GMC bike that's had a horrendous spray job applied to it.

funnily enough, the paint probably cost almost as much as the bike.

As soon as I saw the thumb shifters and enormous welds, I was trying to figure out what it really was. Funny stoof right there.

Just finished the build less the Enve wheels so the Campy's will do for now. Need to make some adjustments and cut the steer tube.

nice, but not "Hot".

I'm not a fan of heavily labeled bikes or wheels unless those labels are advertisements for your sponsor.

It is a nice ride though.

I have ugly decals on one wheelset, and an ellipse on my frames, but if the company gives product, or pays an entrance fee, they paid for that advertisement.

I like subdued logos that some manufacturers use(like ENVE).

Thanks. I didn't like the paint scheme on these until I went and looked at them. I loved my Caad10 so wanted to try a 12. They aren't the most beautiful frames but when you see them in person they are nice, well at least to me. I have a SS and a SS HM but there's just something about the ride of a Caad that I love. I got Enve wheels inc and just ordered the new cannondale chain rings. I will repost when they arrive.
