You have probably answers this a million times before. But, can't seem to find it in search. So i'm asking.
I want another bike. I have around 1500€
So the big question is. which new bike.

Cannondale CAAD10
BMC streetracer SR01 105
Focus - Cayo 1.0

Hope you will help me.

Daniel

Caad 10, assuming it fits you.

Avoid butt witches at all costs.


(CAAD10 is the best of those three)

Sorry, terrible joke. English can be rather annoying. Witch = pointy hat, flying broomstick, Harry Potter. Which = "which one?" Pronounced exactly the same of course.

Cayo would be my second choice. I just really like the CAAD10 ride feel.

Get it now. Thank you.
I looking at the Cayo with Force because of price vs. components.

Since it's a Winter bike, getting the most for your money would be (in my opinion) the best direction to take.
In that case, if the Cayo has the better components for the price, it would be the better purchase.

While the CAAD10 is very popular, many other alloy frames are also fantastic and worthy of consideration.

Selection process (for me, in this case) -

1. Best fit (stack & reach needs)
2. Best value (price, group, components)
3. Availability (Can I see a model locally?)

Probably easier to resell the CAAD10, if that's a consideration.

I would say that of the three you listed, the CAAD has the most potential to serve you well out of the box while remaining relevant and upgrade-worthy as you tackle new challenges. There's not much that frame can't do competently short of touring.

Are you buying a complete bike, or do you have wheels/group/cockpit to move from a current ride? Double-check what the Euro-market spec is for the CAAD in your price range; much of what is on the internet describes US market equipment.

Holiday-themed spelling gaffes are welcome. After all, Halloween *is* approaching (yeah closeout candy!).

I can see all the models local. Haven't tried any of them yet. And yes, i'm allways thinking of the re-sale price.
And as the CAAD10 is very popular. That would be the easiest to sell. But on the CAAD10 you get 105 and Force on the Cayo. With an fsa crank, but i think i'm changing that for an used Rotor crank.

Got my Colnago with Record. So i'll be looking at new components. And for me, i could do with Force and a nother crank on the new bike.

I'm with prendrefeu on this one, plus ride feel. With a winter ride a harsh bike will feel 10x harsher on your tired, half-frozen body.

never been on the caad10 or streetracer, but i've owned a cayo for about a year, and it's the only bike i've ever sold and missed. mine (54) was responsive, had geometry that was just aggressive enough, helped me to become a more confident descender, and had fantastic feel for the road, ie muted jarring and buzzing, but never felt plush.

our local team/club gets a discount on cannondales, and i've never heard a bad word about the caad10 either.
