I've the opportunity to buy a new pair Mavic CC80s at a very attractive price. Would they be aero overkill on a CAAD9? I currently have Campag Khamsins for training and a pair of custom handbuilt PX20mm weighting in at 1050g.

I'll take some better photos and do its own thread soon.

No such thing as aero overkill.

Not at all. The CAAD9 with those wheels would be a heck of a crit or rolling road racing machine!

Straight tubes and deep wheels. Way to go.

I think it'd look damn hot :twisted:

Did a quick mock-up with someone else's bike. Mine's the same paint scheme, with full chorus and a black arione. I know the CC80 are deeper.

I'm very tempted. I don't want to get a different frame as the geo fits me perfectly but still want some aero-ness.

I have 404s on my Caad 9. I know, it's about 22mm difference, but it works for me.

Visually, it works fine. I think the look is sharp.

Practically... are you heavy enough to ride an 80mm front rim on what's basically a textbook crit frame? That could get awfully squirrelly in a hurry if you aren't a big dude. Never mind crosswinds, I'd be worried that somebody might sneeze while I ride past! But if you're a big Fabian-type, that's a cool setup.

Hmmm, I'm 6'4" and 63kg.... Wiggo height, Contador weight. I might get blown over?

Can't race 'em tomorrow as the glue isn't done and it's going to be very, very wet in London. Next weekend though..!
