KLabs, looks aside (and frankly, I do think it's a gorgeous frame and color scheme) I did several months of research both here and generally online to determine what I wanted.
The CAAD 10 really seemed to fit the bill.
I guess the extra anticipation factor of waiting for so long just built the excitement level as well.
Hopped on it for two quick laps of the block tonight after picking it up and first impression was immediately that I made the right decision.
I've been on a demo SuperSix High-Mod for the past 6 months...and the CAAD just blew it away. (to be fair the 'six was a few years old, and the frame was a bit big for me)
The first word to pop into my head as I road the first few meters was "smooth". Even with all the hype, I really didn't expect the Alu frame to feel like that.
Time will tell of course, but I'd say the new bike and I are going to get along just fine.
