SEE PAGE 2 FOR NEW IMAGES AND UPDATED SPECS. LIST

I've posted my Colnago Extreme Power with Dura-Ace but I haven't presented my C'Dale CAAD 9 in Liquigas colors. It's not really a WW with a weight of about 8.2 kilograms.

It's a size 54 and it's mounted with Shimano 105. For the money I think it's a great group and it works perfectly. The cassette is Ultegra... Wheels are Vuelta Carbon Pro's mounted with Vredestein Fortezza TriComp Pro and Vittoria Corsa Evo CX tubulars...

Maybe not the best, lightest or nicest but it is my first road bike and I really love it. And now a few images...

Images been taken with a wide angle lens which explains the distortion in the images...

I love that bike, great colorscheme. Maybe not the lightest, but one of the graphical most stunning bikes.

I really like the wheels, especially when you consider the price tag. They cannot be compared to Zipp or similar but I think they're great. They accelerate well although they can be a bit on the heavy side when you want to gain speed. They roll very well and as far as I can tell they're also pretty stiff. But I'm not a heavy rider and neither am I a particular forceful rider... Heavier riders and more powerful rider may want something else... But for the price it's great... I just with the decals would be white instead of red...

I actually bought the Look HSD stem for it looks and not it's performance/weight. It's not a particular light stem but it looks great and it's also very stiff.

It's a Fizik Pavé Sport... I'm going to replace it with a Prologo or at least a lighter saddle. It's just around 280-300 grams... Haven't weighed it myself, but that's the weight specs. on the Internet...

Thanks... I haventø really tried the Vuelta Superlite's yet... I searched the forums and Internet but didn't find a single review about them. but I did get them at a good price and I thought they looked great, at least different :) So I just took the chance and bought them... I will post a ride report when I get a chance to try them although they might not be interesting for any Weight Weenies as they weigh in at 1900 grams/pair.
