Interesting stem. Tell us if you like it after you've ridden it a while.

I have a CAAD9 on my trainer - very nice paint job.

What I wouldn't give for a set of Edge wheels like that!

Excellent build there! Taken it for a spin yet??


And what's the final weight??

The bike looks great; but the saddle seems to be far forward, even with a zero-setback seatpost. This can't be good for your position on the bike (unless you have really really short femurs). Maybe try a shorter stem and move the saddle back a bit?

Anyways, love the combination of parts on the bike.

Agree with FA63. Very nice balance of colors. Well done! :thumbup:

cheers guys!

@fa63 - yeah tinkering a bit with my position, but so far have found that it feels better when my saddle is a bit more forward for some reason. although, not a lot of room on the rails to adjust that saddle.

What is the weight of that gorgeous bike?

Even if I don't like that high wheels it looks really. Really nice spec too. Why a Cervelo or something that expensive when Caad9 is so great. :D

ok.... for those interested.... bike is weighing in at 7.04kg on my scales.
not too bad for a alu frame and still with the standard fork!

cheers barry - surprisingly, back and gnashers not too bad 8) seatpost and tasty wheels take enough of the shock out of it for me :D

thinking of upgrading front end to:
team 3t ergosum/nova bars
3t arx stem
seatpost ??

not sure where to go after that for any weight savings.... aside from maybe some edge 1.25's....

How heavy is the standard fork? Could maybe loose some weight with an Edge fork?

Standard fork is definitely a monster! I just sold my white 3T Funda Pro fork, but if you can find one that's a perfect option.

If you're going 3T on the bars and stem why not on the seatpost too - it's a good look!:
