It was? What happened to it?


I got engaged so I had to convert most of the components into part of a diamond solitaire. Oh well, I still have the pictures!

Spotty through no fault of the bike. I'm a terrible crit rider but we all start somewhere! Time trials are more my strength but there are not very many of those to pick from.

Booo. Sorry to hear that mate, but I guess you had to do what you had to do. Hopefully one day you can build a new one up when the funds allow (and lady).

Better a CAAD than an Evo in that situation.

battle scars. the reason i stayed aluminum (i mainly race crits outside of collegiate). no carbon bikes for me until i get a team bike. there's a lot more less obvious damage but no cracks so it's still completely fine

@Zitter Seen that thing in the flesh. Never got a chance to take a detailed look. That's gotta come in around 15 lbs in race trim. Got an official weight?

no official weight yet but it's at ~16 pounds according to the bathroom scale. can easily drop some weight but I've been racing and riding too much lately to bother. ill probably drop weight during the offseason. cut seatpost, new fd/rd, brakes, maybe bars and stem. the switch from the turbomatic to the slr was very nice

Long story short I have a BBQ CAAD 9 frame that I have been riding for ~ 3 years now. I love it. Great frame and I'm proud to have one of the last that has the 'Handmade in USA' decals on it. However, as with most of you new and shiny things get my attention. LBS has some great deals on 2013 stock. I am eyeing a great deal on a CAAD 10 Black Inc for ~$2500 plus tax. Seems like a screaming deal on a great bike. I would probably sell off the stock wheels as well as the FSA crank as I have a Hallowgram crank on my 9. Would help me drop the price down some more.

I have a few thoughts in my head that made me walk away from the shop and told them I needed to sleep on it. While I think Di2 is a cool idea, I don't have much saddle time on it. Have taken a few rides around the block on another Di2 frame but never spent hours on one day in-day out for a long enough time to get a good idea of how I would like it. I can appreciate the FD shifts plus how quiet everything is. Precise shifts every time. However, I would say my mechanical group bikes have performed the same way when they were in top running order. Obviously with Di2 I wouldn't need to worry about tuneups as often nor cable stretch. However, it comes with its own issues I assume. Especially with electronics these days. While they make life easier, they can also go spastic and give you a headache when not working right. For me, it is much easier to solve what is going on with a mechanical group not working properly vs. same thing happening on a Di2 group.

Second, I'm not sure what I would end up doing with my CAAD 9. I love that frame. Just something special about it, however not sure I can add another bike to the stable without selling a bike. The CAAD 9 would be the one on the chopping block unfortunately.

I took a mechanical 10 out for a test ride (no Di2 in stock) and enjoyed it. But didn't notice a real difference between it and my 9. But one again, I would need several days with long rides to be able to get to that point. A short test ride doesn't really make those small differences noticeable. Especially since the CAAD 9 is such a solid bike to begin with.

Give me some advice guys. I am in no hurry or real need for a new bike. More just the eye candy tempting me. My CAAD 9 is still going strong and hasn't let me down yet. Is it worth 'sacrificing' it for a CAAD 10?

NO! Fight back against consumerism.
