Looks very good...... How does it compare to your old CAAD? Ride impressions?

The SAVE stuff works; I feel less chatter and buzz riding the CAAD10 than I did with the CAAD8 riding over the same roads with the same wheels/tire pressure.

I can't objectively measure any increase in BB stiffness with the BB30/SiSL setup, but it feels more solid and responsive. I stomp and it goes. Subjectively, everything feels faster, but it could just be new bike mojo.

Either way, the upgrade was totally worth it.

Having that setback seatpost and then slamming the seat as far forward as you can ruins a perfectly classy build otherwise. :thumbup:
