New bike ... 2011 Caad10 105

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

New bike ... 2011 Caad10 105

Just picked her up today .. love it so far. It's my first bike so feel pretty shakey on it right now. Need to adjust the bars and height, but overall not bad.

Seems a tad small for being a 54 ?? But oh well, we'll see. The 105 groupo is nice, but I noticed the rear drivetrain is a little noisy while peddling.

The best part .. paid $900 bucks for it.

Great bike at a very nice price! Did you get that off Craigslist? I'm in the DC area and saw one like that offered a few days ago.

Do you know how many CAAD10 owners are boiling with envy right now?

Under priced bike off CL in a major metro area. I'm guessing there is one former CAAD10 owner boiling with something as well.

Great deal!

How's the shifting? New cables stretch a little after the first couple of rides and I would guess your rear derailer needs a little adjustment...Easy fix. Now ride it like you stole it!

Congrats and awesome bike!

Now, flip it & slam it! lol.

And adjust the angle of your saddle so it's parallel to the ground.
