i will never like the arione saddle either. you can save a lot of weight by changing that out too. i bought a used, beat up selle italia carbonia for cheap and modified to 103 grams. if i could get the glue off the bottom i could probably get it under a hunnit.

nice bike, btw.[/quote]

Thanks for that!

I find the Arione comfortable. Also the white stripe lines up nicely with the top tube of the frame!

This is such a nice bike. Personally I reckon black hoods would look better but those wheels are just the bomb! :thumbup:

Thanks. Black hoods are on standby for when the white starts to look grey!

I like the shape of the CAAD 9 frame more than 10.

Update

Broke three rear-NDS spokes couple of weeks ago. Not massively impressed with the cx-rays anymore!
Thinking about replacing rear with dt swiss competition. Leaving the front as is. Any thoughts?

Using a borrowed set of Campag Neutron's at the moment. Absolutely brilliant wheels, they fly uphill!

Funny thing, I ran Ambrosio Chrono`s last summer on my Caad 9 and ran Neutrons when I broke my rear spokes as well.
I weighed about 80kg last year and didn`t find the Chronos too durable. Ended up switching to some 32H A23`s which have been bombproof, although the Chronos were a bit more comfy, especially with Pave`s!

Are those really whiskey corks for plugs? And they work?

... might be time to accessorize. A good excuse for some nice scotch and time at the bike stand.
