Thanks man, the fit of the gaulzetti just wasn't right for me and couldn't be made right without a new fork and monster spacer stack, so it's in eBay and will be likely replaced with something custom.

Wait, aren't you the rider that, in the past, raved about Gaulzetti geo and fit?

I may have... The shine wore off and on longer rides and races I was getting fatigued more quickly than I should have. The Gaulzetti looking as amazing getting as much attention as it did kind of kept the "new bike glow" for longer than it should have, but the last few weeks I've realized I'm not able to keep my hips as open as they should be and thus, losing a significant amount of power. Hopping back on the CAAD has been a pretty eye opening experience as far as the true "power" of fit and geo. Next bike will probably be full custom (for me, not someone else).

Very sharp! Like the mix of polished and black surfaces......tape is a bit tatty and think black would look better IMHO.

Thanks. Yea the 74.5 degree seat tube on the 48cm is the only measurement on the bike that doesn't fit me too well. I really need something like FSA's 35mm setback but their whole contact points line are a bit heavier.

Haha, thanks. Those 202 CCs are not as light as advertised. The bike weighs the same with my aluminum Campy Shamals mounted. My 202 tubulars and SR 11-23 cassette gets it down to somewhere around 14-14.25. Hopefully I can switch to a Hollowgram SiSL SRM sometime in the near future and that should bring it into the 13s.
