2. but i'm on a bit of a "trim the zoot" mission myself at the moment.
Except if you crash a lot in the crits, then 1.
Loving the Evo btw, and yours in particular, but since you asked ...
Thanks for the compliments. I don't crash in crits, but I'm constantly on my toes about others crashing and completely ruining the evo. I love crits and I can feel more content with ruining a caad than an evo.
1! Your EVO is so nice.
Thanks for the compliment!

None of the above
Sell the Sram, sell the Evo and buy a Chorus groupset.
CAAD10 with Campagnolo Chorus.............
Thanks for the suggestion, but I have yet to jump to Campy. There's nothing wrong with the group, I just really love Shimano/Sram
Personally, I don't see a problem with having two bikes, so I say go #1.
There's also #4: Sell the CAAD10 and put the money toward the aforementioned tubular set
Yes, there is that option! Realistically I don't have much money to add if I sell the CAAD. I would however have more if I sold the Evo, but we'll see
Um, get the 10 and ride it? Then decide?
I have an Evo hi-mod and love it. All day comfortable, amazing power transfer. It isnt a Synapse, so if you have lots of rough pavement it might not be the right bike.
I also have a CAAD9. Great bike, stiffer fork, comfortable for about 30 miles. Doesn't feel as efficient as the Evo. I've talked to owners and read reviews all over the place; CAAD10 feels like an Evo, feels worse than a CAAD9, etc. Way too many variables, do your own test!
Raining, dirty pavement, the Evo stays home.
Test and report back
Thanks for the input! At this point I may just build the CAAD with Rival, and test the waters between the two. I would love having two bikes, one for foul weather/crits, and the other for road races, etc., but I think having one should be enough, especially since I'm still in college.
