Thanks! I carry the frame pump and a few tubes on solo rides.

We have a little girl, Amelia. She is doing great! Thanks for asking.

Which spindle length did you have to use with the Hollowgrams, 104 or 109?

The Hollowgrams are the SL version so they came with the 104mm spindle. I am limited out on my front mech, so I think I probably could get a better setup with the 109mm, but waiting for a deal on one to show up.

So both fit, but the 109 allows for a wider range of adjustment?

Yes, I currently have the 104 (with the lip on the NDS) and it functions perfectly, save for the outer limit screw adjustment being maxed.

Okay, what's the story? Why the feeler in the Sales thread?

Well......you know me :oops:. With the new baby and all, I find it hard to ride as "hard and fast" as I did before, so I am thinking of doing a custom steel "all-road" machine. I have a bit of a cross circuit built in my back yard (30 acres) and I want something that will fit 35c tires so I can get a workout in close to home, but still be able to put some relatively skinny (28c) rubber on and hit a fast-ish group ride. I would consider a trade for a disc cross bike with some transitional geometry. Don't get my wrong, I love my CAAD and if it had discs and could take 32-35c tires I would keep it, but alas it doesn't, and the wife would not allow two bikes at this time.

Just remember in a years time (or less) from selling your CAAD, you will regret it and decide you want to get a CAAD again. That is ok. It is also ok to have more than one bike. :)

But if taking a sabbatical from the CAAD lets you realize how great a frame it is, that is good enough. Just do it right next time and go with Di2.
