I've been reading this forum for a long time. Might aswell start posting with a picture of my training bike.

2004 Caad 7 58cm
Sram Red with Hollowgram crank

7,4kg (16.3lbs) as it is now (actual), but love it.

White saddle and tape don't go well with a black bike.

I f you can, take pics of your Caad with high profile tubular wheels and tan sidewall tubulars! :thumbup:
For example, Reynolds would be perfect because of its matte black carbon look (UD actually).

Tan sidewall tyres would look great with it, agreed.

Saddle and tape fine too.

Always liked that scheme :thumbup:


(Red on a 'training bike' too :shock: :lol: way to roll)

Looks like I need some high profile wheels. With tan sidewalled tires. :beerchug:
That would be awesome.

It's my training bike because I don't race much. So it is my racing bike aswell a few times a year. :o Got the Red at 50% off, cheaper than Force.

Hi fellow CAADdicts,

After reading all the positive reviews about CAADs here and elsewhere, I decided to get a CAAD as a spare bike (main ride is a TCR Advanced SL). So when I saw someone selling a Caad 10 anodized black frameset, I couldn't resist! My main focus was to get the full-on stealth look - at a budget. So my priorities were: black components, weight and cost (in no particular order).

Here's the build list:
Frame Cannondale Caad10 50cm
Fork Cannondale Caad 10
Headset Cannondale Caad 10
Stem 3T Arx Team (Stealth colour scheme)
Handlebar Zipp Service Course
Seatpost Cannondale C2
Saddle Fizik Arione CX
Brakes SRAM Apex
Shifters SRAM Rival
Derailleurs (f) SRAM Rival
Derailleurs (r) SRAM Rival
Cranks SRAM S500
Cassette Shimano Ultegra
Chain SRAM PC1051
Pedals Look Keo 2 Max
Wheelset Soul S2.0
Tyres Schwalbe Ultremo ZX
Skewers KCNC
Bottle Cage Tacx Tao Ultralight

I haven't ridden it enough to give a fair comparison to my TCR. Will do so when i chalk up more miles. Comments (good and bad) are more than welcome, especially how to make it look more stealth and lighter without spending too much.

If I walked into a LBS and both those bikes were there......I'd buy the CAAD!

Really nice ride......it would look sweet with some Veloflex Corsa's, as it would black it out a bit more than the gaudy Ultremo's.

EDIT: and some black chain rings (SRAM Red Black Edition)

It looks pretty good.

+1 on the chainrings.

For weightsaving, maybe consider a pair of Planet-X CNC brakes, and maybe a KCNC ti seatpost - wouldn't cost too much.
