Got my caad9 down to 14.5lbs. Heavy carbon clinchers. Enve 1.0 going on soon and new tubs will get me into the 13lbs range.

How does the CAAD ride? Stiff for climbing? She tried the nashbar carbon frame and it flexes a lot during climb. :(

Plenty stiff. I'm 175lbs and the caad is super snappy. I would say it's the best production alloy frame. Good bang for the buck when you check out eBay. It's stiff but I tune the ride with good tires and tire pressure. I can do a 200k and feel fine. Next frame will be custom ALU. Rock lobster, gaulzetti, primus mootry.

The Giant SLR is worth checking out as well! Switched from a CAAD10 a few months back and have no regrets! Weighed almost the exact same as the CAAD 10 (slightly lighter, IIRC), but has a much smoother ride.

:up: This bike is worth checking out. I heard good reviews from a shop guy who also deals cannondale and specialized. I know it isn't offered as a bare frameset on their site but I think you could probably get your hands on one if you tried hard enough.

Oops, yeah meant TCR SLR. I don't remember the exact number, but mine weighed in the low 1100g range for a small. Fork was 460g, I believe. Also, Giant's sizing is odd. A small is a 46.5cm frame, but I have no idea where they get 46.5cm from, I rode a 52cm CAAD 10.

What the hell happened to the "is anybody rocking light alloy" thread?!?!
Was it merged with this one? Why? This thread is about steel, and the other one was about aluminium!

Both are technically alloy, they should have merged into the alloy thread, not this one.
