:thumbup: The bar has just been raised with that build. Awesome looking bike in every detail. And, it pushes me that much closer to finding that frameset for my next build.

Thanks guys.

Rode it for the second time today. Overall it feels very solid. I got in some sprints both uphill at 25mph and on flats at 45mph and the bike feels stable at both speeds. In comparison to my CAAD 8 it feels a lot more stable on the front end. I think that not only the beefed up front end contributes to the stiffness but also the aluminum steer tube. There's very little bend I can feel in the bars/front end. I'm going to keep the 500+gram fork because of how it handles on the downhills. The bottom bracket stiffness is great, a tad bit better than the CAAD 8 due to the BB30 and SISL crankset. Overall I don't think the BB30 made a huge difference in performance. It doesnt improve the durability and makes the bike lighter however.

In one sentence; the bike makes a noticeable difference in terms of the front end stiffness making the bike one of the stiffest bikes I've ever been on, and probably one of the stiffest bikes out there. This is what I was looking for before I got the CAAD 9.

That is one Superb bike :o
Only one little thing i'd change: A matte finish bar, stem and seatpost, so it matches the matte black Si SL cranks :wink:

All "pro-bro" rules adhered to.

Very nice work, yo :beerchug:

A BB30 Caad 9, It's amazing an aluminum frame still has as much wow factor in this day and age of everything carbon. Makes me want to go and buy one. I think that this final evolution of the worlds best aluminum frames is probably lighter/stiffer than 90% of the chinese carbon frames being sold.

I'm lovin' it. But... I did notice that, w/ your Edge wheelset at least, your rear tire is mounted the wrong way. The Vitt label should be facing DS.
