Ritcheys and Eastons often measure 5mm +/- what the marked length actually is. Same with 3T -17 stems.

From memory I ordered it as a 110mm measures 115mm, I always assumed I received the wrong one.

Cheers

I could use a 105mm.I have contacted several shops and dealers to hear if they could help...That would off course involve some unpacking and measuring which none of them were interested in doing :-(.I also contacted Ritchey Europe and they promised that i would be contacted by the national distributor to hear if they could help but i never heard from them.I guess there are a few options regarding a 105mm stem out there...But i would like to keep bar,stem and seatpost to the same brand.I´m on the lookout for a Ritchey WCS 44 or the c260 in wet black...Either a "Short" 110mm or a "Long" 100mm

Judging by the cut steerer I'd say you have your fit dialed in... but that saddle to bar drop looks huge.
Very nice bike and choice of components, the black parts really set of the frame :thumbup:

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I recently purchased a 2011 CAAD10 frame (frame only) and was wondering if an 09 SuperSix fork would work with it? Didn't want to start a new thread but if need be I can make one. Any help would be cool, thanks.

The supersix fork is 1,5" and the caad10 is 1,25" in the bottom so won't work in any way. If you want a lighter fork an Evofork will fit

Thanks for the response. I'll keep an eye out for one or if anyone has a black 2011 CAAD10 fork they are looking to sell I'd be interested.

This is my very first post! I've been looking around for quite some time now.

My roadie is a CAAD 10 as well, but it's not quite up to WW standards yet.

Anyway, great forum!
