Hi Guys,

Been away for a while. I purchased this bike as a 105 CAAD10 almost two years ago as a winter bike having read all the great reviews and builds on this site. When spring came around after my first winter with the bike I just didn't want to stop riding it, I favoured both the position and characteristics of the bike over my Felt AR0. This led me to sell the AR0 and turn this into my main (and currently only) road bike. I've been slowly upgrading and this is where I am today…

Very nice, mind elaborating on the CAAD10 vs AR0? Is the CAAD stiffer/more compliant?
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

This is the meanest looking bike i've seen on here in a while.

I like it a lot.

That bike kind of says 'You know what you are doing'.
