And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

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.

... more love for anything-but-the-CAAD.

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:
