I recently sold my '12 Cervelo R3 and bought a Cannondale CAAD 10.
I was professionally fitted on the R3 but won't have the luxury of the same on the CAAD.
The CAAD has a longer "reach" measurement but a shorter effective top tube measurement, only by .5mm though.
This would mean I need to move my saddle back by a hair to achieve the same "setback" measurement as the R3.
My question is,
Will I need a longer stem as well?
Forgot to add...the reach on the C3 Cannondale bars is also shorter than the
R3's 3T Ergonova bars.
Thanks in advance for any help.
'move saddle back...' no, assuming you want to replicate your postition 1:1, your saddle stays in the same position in relation to the bottom bracket
did you record the measurements on your R3 ?
then re the handlebar, what headset bearing cover (and spacers) did you use on the cervelo, which headset bearing cover will you use on the CAAD10 ?
do you want to replicate handlebar drop 1:1 ?
