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.

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.

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..!
