Nope, 54cm. Why you ask? Doesn't look big does it?

superlite it looks real good. I've been following your bike building as I have a cannondale team replica on order. And it's just good to hear what others have had to say about the bike and combo of parts. Thanks for the good read can't wait till to see it all finished. [/u]

Vredestien Forteza, either standard or tricomp. The nicest tire I've ever ridden. Only drawback is there a bit on the heavy side, 235-255g. Also think michelin are great, just not as durable and road feel not as good, but for as lite as they are there awsome, as long as you stay out of the rain.

Don't know the weight, but Continental GP3000 are good allround tyres with good durability

I'm 5'8", and 54cm what I sized up for. Seems to fit good on the test bike I rode. 56cm is a little small for your size, or so it would seem. Is that what you went with? Hows the fit?

the 56 suits me perfectly.... my m8 also rides a 56 & is 6foot 3

i figure top tube length is really the more important factor

Yeah, thats why I went with the 54cm, its actually a tad big, but I needed the top tube length. You must have long legs I'm guessing.

I'm 6 foot and my CAAD 7 is a 58, and i wish I had gotten a 56. I can't get my front end as low as I'd like, and the 56, would be a little lighter and stiffer as well. Cannondales have a tendency to run a little bigger than a lot of other bikes.

WHAT :!: :!: :!: your going to go 9 speed :?:

just wait it out, a week or 2 wont kill you, thats what i keep telling myself, and its been a couple of months - good thing its almost over, all i need is my crank (since i sold my FSA team issue to get superlite's)

You can always go record, if so let me know i can get you a good deal. pm me on the dura ace 04 i can get you a good price.
