How about aluminum bike that isn't a CAAD ?
They've already got their own thread.
I want this thread though, more love for anything-but-the-CAAD. :thumbup:

Great idea! Glad to finally see a thread like this!

How about some American made aluminum?

The frame, in a size small, comes in at 1200g sans derailleur hanger, etc. As shown, it sits at 16.5 lbs. :beerchug:

In deference to your request I will not be posting my CAAD10 here.

Don't get me wrong, I love my CAAD, but I would like to see other aluminum bikes when carbon fiber is all the rage at the moment.

WOW!
I am loving this thread. I'll post mine when the sun is up here. @ OP, what are the bars on your Giant cyclocross? @ jz4nyc, NICE Tsunamis! I'd love to see a drive side shot of the black one with the Honjos. The white one looks great with that Ultegra (before the styling turned to craptacular, neo-Jetson).
Thanks everyone. :thumbup:
