Heard a few tidbits from my rep yesterday...

Caad10: 1 1/4 lower bearing, similar tube shapes to sixcarbon, internal cable routing.
Supersix Evo: 700grams
Scalpel himod: much lighter than current. Continuous fibers from heatube to rear dropout.

Sad but true... now they will be just like just about every other bike out there.

When your brand is built around "Made in the USA" some appeal is lost to some people.

I thought the brand was built around innovation, performance, and high technology?

Any news about the Flash or possibly a carbon cross bike?

Beat me to it, not to mention a quality product regardless of where it is made.

C'mon guys, '10 is barely underway... Nobody has even seen anything yet so let's take it easy here. I like the current C'dales. I think they can only get better.

The larger lower HS bearing on the CAAD10 goes right along with Cannondale's habit of going back on there word...

Regardless, I still love the current CAAD9 and I'm still kicking myself for not buying a raw System 6 (IMO one of the best looking bikes ever, and the best bike Cannondale has ever released).

Or the opposite. When I've seen a brand proudly proclaiming "Made in the USA," I'll often run away. :wink:
Of course, it all depends on the product itself though - that should speak for itself, so let's not generalize completely.

In other words: get over it.

I thought it was Cannondale's internal studies that determined a larger lower bearing didn't help at all (might actually be worse) on an aluminum frame? Did they just do crappy research and now came across a new answer? Kinda like the climate change thing?

The CAAD9 is a great frame. I just ordered one with BB30 and SISL crank with my team discount. While the System 6 is also a nice frame, not sure the mix of materials is the best design. I think there are better options. Now the SuperSix Hi-MOD matte frame is hot hot hot! :thumbup:

Starnut may correct me on this but here is what I got from the rep on the bearing thing.

1 1/2" bearing made the frame heavier and harsher riding. 1 1/4" (like what Time uses) added a wee bit of fork stiffness without the downsides that the 1 1/2" had.


And yeah... carbon cross bike for next year.

This is not GM or Chrysler we're talking about. Made in the USA Cannondale aluminum has, and continues to be, the benchmark of aluminum bicycles in the industry. Part of the mystique of a Caad9 is that it is hand made by artisans. It's not just cranked out of some factory like some mass produced nike shoes.

Big aluminum tubes are high technology? I have a CAAD7 and CAAD9 so i like Cannondale. Just don't think of high tech for their aluminum frames.
