Just got back into cycling after a 15 year break. Picked this up for a great deal, so I upgraded the wheels. Tried Zipps but it's pretty hilly around here and these were way lighter. That said, this will be turning into a CAAD10 w/ an ENVE fork in couple weeks....

The angles on that look funny.

Flat saddle, slight drop to the bars, normal length post and stem... looks pretty normal to me. Nice bike you have there, why the change to the CAAD?

Nothing funky going on - Fizik Anteres saddle, 100mm stem, 2 spacers, stock bars (nothing fancy as my position is still changing given I'm just getting back on the bike).

I'm a huge fan of the "all black" thing, and ENVE, and have always loved aluminum. Rode Klein and Cannondale back in the day. I picked up a CAAD10 frame for a deal, so I gotta do it.

CAAD10 is a 100% nicer frame in terms of looks.

Im with you... looks strange at the front. HT seems really tall and steep.

It's an H2 geometry, can't do much about it.

Did some research and this is it. It's got a very high head tube and a short reach compared to oher race bikes. Having just gotten back into bikes I didn't even know there were 3 geometries etc...it will work for he summer while I get my position back, then....

You can always remove the spacers, if that's not low enough, get a low stack bearing cover and slam that stem. :D

I've been doing that as I get back into cycling form. I have a 110mm 3T stem and Ergonova bars coming in and I'll take out the spacers then.

Bike is being rebuilt this week. CAAD10 was too rough for me but got me back in a "racing" position. Slamming the 3T stem, 40cm 3T ergonaova bars, 3T post and carbon railed saddle in order. Pics should be Friday.
